The Department Welcomes Jonardon Ganeri
Ganeri graduated from Churchill College, Cambridge , with his undergraduate degree in mathematics, before completing a DPhil in philosophy at University and Wolfson Colleges , Oxford. He has published eight monographs, and is the editor of the Oxford Handbook of Indian Philosophy. He works on the history of ideas in early modern South Asia, intellectual affinities between India and Greece, and Buddhist philosophy of mind, teaches courses in the philosophy of mind, the nature of subjectivity, Buddhist philosophy, the history of Indian philosophical traditions, and supervises graduate students on South Asian philosophical texts in a cross-cultural context. He is a prominent advocate for an expanded role for cross-cultural methodologies in philosophical research, and for enhanced cultural diversity in the philosophical curriculum. In the philosophy of mind, Jonardon Ganeri advances the view, in his book The Self , that our concept of self is constitutively grounded in the fact that subjects are beings who own their ideas, emotions, wishes, and feelings. He argues that the self is a unity of three strands of ownedness: normative, phenomenological, and subpersonal. In a different book, Attention, Not Self , he argues that when early Buddhists deny that there is a self, what they are rejecting is the conception of self as the willing agent, an inner origin of willed directives.
