for those of you open to the possibility of a sane theistic-picture of reality -- where what really matters is respected and pursued -- may I gently suggest a new book of mine? (see below). It has a slightly Indian flavor.
I wrote it in part to counter the narrow and excessively anthropocentric models pushed by most "western" religions. We philosophers must not cede the religious ideas/values public arena to narrow-minded voices.
I am hoping to spread the word about it, and perhaps make the world a better place.
Thanks for your indulgence!
