About meB.A. in Philosophy by University of Sao Paulo (USP), Brazil.

In Religion: Shintoist devout of Inari Okami and Amaterasu Omikami, Shingon Buddhist devout of Kannon Bussatsu, and Youkaidoist devout of Yo'hariesh Sarashan, all four of whom I see as one and the same.

In Philosophy: Influenced by Classic Philosophy (Plato, Aristotle, Plotinus, Aquinas), Critical Philosophy (Kant), Phenomenology (Husserl, Heidegger), Voegelin, the Kyoto School, and Bayesianism.

In Economy: Distributist sympathetic towards Libertarianism.

In Politics: Classic Republicanism (no, I do not mean the US Republican Party).

About my libraryMost of my books are in English, some are in Portuguese and a few in Spanish. Most of them are Fantasy and Science Fiction, with non-fiction ones' focused on Comparative Religion and Philosophy.
