The Nay Science: A History of German Indology Philosophy And Salvation in Greek Religion Modernity and Plato

 

Parmenides, Plato and Mortal Philosophy Reading the Fifth Veda When the Goddess was a Woman

RÉSUMÉ
My research focuses on the problem of mortality in ancient Greek philosophy, especially as this problem informs Greek ontology, epistemology, and ethics. I am specifically concerned with themes such as the mortal soul, the erotic longing of mortals, their desire for transcendence, and the mortal journey as these are thematized in the works of Parmenides, the Pre-Socratics, and Plato. In addition to my record of serious scholarship in ancient Greek philosophy, I have also done significant work in Indian philosophy.
