Miri Albahari discusses the foundations of Buddhist teaching and their philosophical implications.
Dr Miri Albahari is a Philosophy Lecturer at the University of Western Australia and is the author of Analytical Buddhism: The Two-Tiered Illusion of Self. The book was converted from a Ph.D thesis that was supervised by John A. Baker at the University of Calgary. Miri teaches comparative philosophy and is building a novel consciousness-based metaphysical system for what Aldous Huxley referred to as ‘the Perennial Philosophy’. Albahari’s ideas on this theme have been published in journals such as Philosophers’ Imprint and Journal of Consciousness Studies and in The Routledge Handbook of Panpsychism. She is married to David Godman, a leading author on the renowned South Indian sage Ramana Maharshi whose teachings exemplify the Perennial Philosophy.
