philosophy bites & other brainfood 

I spread the pleasure of thinking

 

 

I am a philosophy masterstudent, a writer and host of the podcast of "Transformatorenwerk Leipzig". I am interested in philosophy as practice - for creating one's life, for personal and emotional development and for a balanced and exciting life. My vision is to strengthen the person as a responsible subject which thinks and acts by itself while answering to the world it encounters.

embrace the po-valley

Critical times like the one we are just collectively going through can be quite useful in their lack of productivity. It sounds strange at first. To see how watching three seasons of Himym in a row and stuffing oneself with Häagen-Dazs in the meantime can…
