I consider myself a comparitivist philosopher. My training spans analytic philosophy, Continental philosophy, Eastern philosophy, world religions, Christian theology, and biblical studies. I am currently teaching introductory courses in philosophy and theology and upper-level courses in Eastern Philosophies and Jewish and Muslim Philosophers. My current research and interests revolve around philosophy of religion and interreligious studies. For an American, I have an unusual knowledge of Romanian philosophy, especially the work of Lucian Blaga. Because of this I also have an acquaintance with and interest in Orthodox theology (although I myself am a Baptist). Finally, I am keenly interested in epistemology, though I am not currently teaching our course on this subject.
