About Me

I wrote my interdisciplinary dissertation on Borges and Plato at the department of comparative literature, Bar Ilan University (summa cum laude). Thereafter, I have conducted a postdoctoral research on Borges and Wittgenstein's philosophy at Harvard University. My main research interests are: the inter-relations between philosophy and literature; the fiction and thought of Jorge Luis Borges; Greek and modern philosophy – especially aesthetics, metaphysics and language; literature and kabbalah; comparative mysticism; East and West – focusing on comparative philosophy, Zen Buddhism, and comparative religion. Presently, I serve as the head of the department of comparative literature, and the director of The Graduate Program of Comparative East Asian Studies
