 The Ethics of Infinity

I am researching the Hindu sacred text, the Bhagavad-Gita, commentaries on this text, and western philosophical writing in order to understand our relationship with infinity and the implications of this relationship in how we live our lives.

The Honors Fellowship will support my study of original texts in Williamsburg over the summer, and my pursuit of direct philosophical insight in meditation centers around the United States and potentially in India next winter.
