Dan Arnold is a scholar of Indian Buddhist philosophy, which he engages in a constructive and comparative way. His particular interests are in Indian Buddhist Madhyamaka , and in the appreciation of Indian Buddhist philosophy as an integral part of the broader tradition of Indian philosophy. In this regard, he has been especially interested in issues disputed between Buddhist schools and the orthodox Brahmanical school of Pûrva Mimamsa. His first book — Buddhists, Brahmins, and Belief: Epistemology in South Asian Philosophy of Religion (Columbia University Press, 2005)— won the American Academy of Religion’s Award for Excellence in the Study of Religion. His essays have appeared in Philosophy East and West, Journal of Indian Philosophy, and Journal of the International Association of Buddhist Studies, among other places. He is currently studying issues involving the intersection of Buddhist philosophy of mind, epistemology, and the category of intentionality.
