Do you have any prior convictions?

I don’t mean jail terms. I mean what are your influences?

Being Chinese, Asian culture influences informs my thinking. So does Buddhism, particularly Zen Buddhism. But not before Christianity (this is one is a negative influence). I am also informed by postmodernism, deconstruction, Derrida, Wittgenstein, Kant, corpus and cognitive linguistics. I am sure I have forgotten some.

The point is, I want to be transparent about where I come from while also deal with the baggage, so to speak.
