My research has taken me across the world to the study of Advaita Vedānta, an Indic philosophy of non-dualism that claims that the self is of the nature of infinite, immutable, immortal, universal consciousness. I have found it to be, the more I have studied, a potentially fruitful philosophical enterprise. It provides a radical alternative to contemporary ideas of the self as individualized and differentiated, and is worthy of critical study as a global philosophy. My aim is to understand, articulate, and critique its positions on the self, the world, and God. Being involved in global-critical philosophy of religion is my way of helping this philosophy critically engage with other philosophies of religion around the world in forums where it otherwise lives on the sidelines.
