    The changing conditions for the accumulation and transmission of knowledge in the age of multimedia networks make it inevitable that old philosophical problems become formulated in a new light. Above all, the problem of the unity of knowledge is once again a topical issue. The situation-dependent acquisition of knowledge that is made possible by mobile learning transcends the boundaries of traditional disciplines, linking the domains of text, diagram, and picture. Database integration and multim…Read more

    There is the tension between, on the one hand, Wittgenstein’s not giving theoretical weight to metaphor, and on the other, his exuberant use of it. On a more fundamental level, there is a straightforward contradiction between Wittgenstein’s claim of the primordial literalness of everyday language, and his stress on the multiplicity and flexibility of language-games. Wittgenstein’s problem was that he did not succeed in making his ideas on metaphor, and indeed his ideas on metaphor and images, co…Read more

    The networked mind
    Studies in East European Thought 60 (1-2): 149-158. 2008.

    Verbildlichung und die Grenzen des wissenschaftlichen Realismus
    Deutsche Zeitschrift für Philosophie 56 (5): 769-779. 2008.
    Die Demarkationslinie, jenseits welcher wissenschaftliche Theorien nicht als wahre Beschreibungen der Welt aufgefasst werden sollten, sondern bloß als mathematische Instrumente, mit deren Hilfe man zu richtigen praktischen Voraussagen kommt, ist nicht die viel diskutierte Grenze zwischen beobachtbar/nicht-beobachtbar, sondern vielmehr die Grenze zwischen dem, was wir uns als perzeptuelle Bilder in der Tat vorstellen können, und dem, was sich allein durch abstrakt-symbolische Ausdrücke formuliere…Read more
