My teaching/research interest is in comparative philosophy: the aesthetic issues of architecture, drama, poetry and ritual in connection with Taoism (Lao-tzu & Chuang-tzu), Zen Buddhism (Dogen & Zeami) and modern German philosophy (Nietzsche, Heidegger & Gadamer). A book project, tentatively entitled Luminous Ruins: Architecture and Zen Philosophy, is in progress.
