I thank all three responders to my books for their careful and detailed consideration of my work. I will address the following concerns that they raise:
• their challenge to my claim that the dharmic traditions are more in tune with modern cognitive science than the Abrahamic ones are
• their challenge to my claim that history-centrism in the Abrahamic faiths is an important point of difference
• their claim that I ignore how historical forces influence dharma
• their claim against a coherent Hindu philosophy and unity
• Brian Pennington’s tension with the reality that the academy seeks to engage me.
