Jeremy David Engels is the Sherwin Early Career Professor Ethics, and an Associate Professor of Rhetoric, at Penn State University, where he is also the faculty advisor to the Penn State Yoga Club. He is a co-founder and co-owner of Yoga Lab in State College, PA. His research investigates the history of yoga philosophy, especially as it has been interpreted in the United States. His recent book The Art of Gratitude (SUNY 2018) investigates the history of how humans have conceptualized gratitude, and it offers a yogic perspective on gratitude to counter the dominant model of gratitude-as-indebtedness that is at the root of so many of our contemporary ethical problems. He is currently working on a new book project tentatively titled The Ethics of Oneness: Yoga, the Bhagavad Gita, and Everyday Democratic Duties, which investigates the history of how Americans have interpreted, wrestled with, and challenged the Bhagavad Gita’s central teaching of oneness (ekatvam). He has won numerous awards for his scholarship and teaching. He is beginning a new initiative at Penn State centered on creating conversations around the theme “The Ethics of Yoga,” and at Penn State he is also the co-organizer of the Religion, Spirituality, and Public Life Initiative. Currently, he teaches a regular community class at Yoga Lab on Thursday evenings called “Philosophy in Practice.”
