"Everybody takes the limits of his/her own field of vision for the limits of the world" (Arthur Schopenhauer). In order to overcome those limitations, my research focuses on diagrammatic reasoning and visualization methods that are intended to stimulate reflection, creativity,learning, and cognitive change. This research is mainly based on semiotics and pragmatism as developed by Charles S. Peirce. My most recent project in this research area is the development of the collaborative argument mapping and deliberation tool "AGORA-net" (http://agora.gatech.edu).
