■ Comment / 自己紹介 ■
In my previous study, I mainly focused on the issues in the Indo-Tibetan Buddhist tradition, especially psychology, ethics, and argumentation. Now at Kyoto University, my academic interests gravitate toward Chinese and Japanese Buddhist philosophy. I will primarily focus on Dogen’s philosophy of silence, and also on how different ways of translation impact the development of East Asian Buddhist philosophy.
