Hi. I am Warren, the originator of this community blog prior convictions and the term diablogue. I am a Zen Buddhist. I was a lay monk in Japan in the distant past. But I had always been interested in philosophy, East and West. My Western philosophy base is Aristotle, Pyrrho, Hume, Kant, literary theory, postmodernism, Post-colonialism, Derrida, Wittgenstein, Saussure. My Eastern philosophy-base is Taoism, Soto Zen, Theravada, koan studies, Buddha, Dignaga, Dogen, Hakuin. My linguistic-base is corpus linguistics, cognitive linguistics, Saussure, Derrida, Lakoff, Langacker.
