In front of the Mysore Palace, Karnataka, India.

Welcome! I'm Malcolm Keating, Assistant Professor of Philosophy in the Humanities Division of Yale-NUS College, Singapore, with a joint courtesy appointment in the Department of Philosophy, National University of Singapore.

I think about language, meaning, and knowledge. My research is in history of philosophy, as a way of doing philosophy. Specifically, my work engages with classical Indian philosophical traditions as well as contemporary Anglophone (analytic) philosophy of language. You can learn more about my work on my research page.

I keep a FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) page here.

I've started a podcast called sutras (and stuff) you can listen to here.
