Dr. Eviatar Shulman

B.A Advisor

I received all my academic degrees at the Hebrew University, and recently spent 3 years as a post-doc at the Mandel Scholion Center. I taught at numerous other Israeli Universities and am happy to have landed at HUJI. I teach in the Departments for Religious Studies and Asian Studies.

My main field of expertise is Buddhism. In earlier stages of my career I focused on philosophical materials, mainly those of the great Indian Buddhist thinker Nāgārjuna. Then I moved to study early Buddhist philosophy and its relation to meditative techniques, an inquiry that led to my book Rethinking the Buddha: Early Buddhist Philosophy as Meditative Perception. I am still interested in Buddhist philosophy, but am more concerned today with religious and literary aspects of Buddhism. My research and teaching also concern Indian philosophy and religion (Hinduism).
