Before I begin I must address an apology to you all. Perhaps you all have already lived this particular situation: you have pages and pages regarding your investigation, they seem to have a logic within them, how concepts play with others or are connected to others, but when faced with a strict economy of time and you need only to address one…

Meeting philosopher performers at Berlin

Hello everyone,

while i'm waiting for my PhD defense, I decided to move to Berlin (11th of June) and start a new life.

New: FWF PEEK Research Project: Artist Philosophers. Philosophy AS Arts-Based Research

Abstract English

Artist-Philosophers. Philosophy as Arts-Based Research

From the very beginning of European philosophy in ancient Greece the relation between philosophy and arts has been highly problematic.
