Vedantic Approaches to God (an abbreviated PhD thesis) compares in detail the theologies of the three major Vedantins: Sankara, Ramanuja, Madhva, expounding their diverging concepts of God, causal relations, ways of knowing, scriptural mediation, grace. While selfhood is the given ground for theologising, the transcendence thus understood differs greatly. Prof. Seshadri referred to Eric Lott (a review in The Hindu) as 'a true guide to Ramanuja'; Prof. S.Weightman of SOAS wrote of his 'erudition', 'linguistic reliability' and unusual 'intellectual penetration'.
