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

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. On the one hand we find “artist-philosophers” like Plato or Nietzsche, whose philosophical investigations used artistic practices to demonstrate their thoughts; on the other hand philosophy has been extremly hostile to such…Continue
