Cup of Nirvana Philosophical and Contemplative Explorations


IMG_6760Michael Sudduth (D.Phil., University of Oxford) a philosophy professor at San Francisco State University, where he’s taught philosophy and religion since 2005.

Although specializing in western and eastern philosophy of religion, his interests range broadly over epistemology, philosophy of science, metaphysics,  philosophy in literature and film, and the field of psychology.

Since January 2016 Michael has been exploring philosophical and psychological themes through fiction writing. He’s currently revising one of three novels, each of which reflects his long-standing interests in life after death, personal identity, abnormal psychology, and horror fiction.

Sudduth’s Cup of Nirvana blog features analytical-style reflections on philosophical topics at the center of his current research and publications, contemplative explorations in eastern philosophy and spiritual practice, and discussions on fiction film and literature.IMG_7196
