englisch / deutsch
After growing up in Germany, I studied in Münster and Oxford, and taught Philosophy at
universities in various countries, but mostly at the University of Calgary, Canada.
In recent years my work has been focussed mainly on the Practice of Philosophy.
In 1987 I founded the ASPP, Apeiron Society for the Practice of Philosophy, a public,
not-for-profit, non-academic Philosophical Society which continues to be active in Calgary.
After moving to Berlin in September 2007 I continue my work as a Philosophical Practitioner
in Philosophical Counseling, Philosophy Workshops as well as lectures and seminars.
My publications include essays on Philosophy of Mind, Philosophy and Literature, the
Practice of Philosophy, a book (Engl.) on Aesthetics, as well as translations and poetry.
In October 2006 I was elected Vice President of the IGPP/ISPP (International Society for the
Practice of Philosophy)
