Mark Siderits works primarily in analytic Asian philosophy. He did his BA at University of Hawaii; his PhD is from Yale. He retired from Seoul National University in 2012, having previously taught at Illinois State University (1980-2008). His current research interests lie in the intersection between classical Indian philosophy on the one hand, and analytic metaphysics and philosophy of language on the other. Among his more recent publications are Personal Identity and Buddhist Philosophy: Empty Persons, 2nd edition (Ashgate, 2015) and, together with Shōryū Katsura, Nāgārjuna’s Middle Way: Mūlamadhyamakakārikā (Wisdom, 2013). A collection of his papers on Buddhist philosophy, Studies in Buddhist Philosophy, was published by Oxford in 2016.
