Polymath on Mission
as Knowledge Enabler & Creative Cybernetist
As a media scientist, I teach at several international universities. As a complexity researcher, I mainly represent the constructivist approach, focusing on human-centered concepts and curious about the discrepancy between the actuality of technology and human potential, conducting research in the fields of cybernetic epistemology, systemic anthropology and pursue other interests in various disciplines.
My educational activity is limited to lectures at selected universities around the world.
I am the author of scientific books in the fields of constructivist philosophy, conceptual lexicology, mediality research, strategic orientation as well as epistemological, ethical, educational and economic aspects of artificial intelligence. Among them are several books aimed at the general reader, the most actual ones are published in German: AI-Thinking (2019), Infosomatic Turn (2021).
I am also engaged in curatorial experiments in the field of conceptual and social arts.
I believe, that a polymathic thinker can demonstrate sound interdisciplinary education, multiple talents, personal qualities, and numerous achievements. But none of it is of relevance if humanity values are not the first priority in his thinking and acting.
Some thinkers I find inspiring: Immanuel Kant, Giovanny Vico, Martin Buber, Wladimir Wernadski, Mikhail Bakhtin, Humberto Maturana, Heinz von Foerster and Ernst von Glasersfeld.

My Almae Matres
A selection of academic institutions in which I have matriculated and completed courses such as degree programs or gained study experience. My subjects were sub-disciplines of human medicine, comparative linguistics, literary studies, publicistic, communication and media sciences, political sciences and others. Besonders faszinierten mich systemisch-kybernetische methoden und mindsets.
At Moscow's Lomonossow State University I had the honor of witnessing the most overwhelming examples of charismatic lecturers who - inspired by their subject and inspiring by their personality - were fruitful for my intellectual search for identity. Later at German universities I was allowed to experience the combative representatives of highly efficient ways of thinking that sharpened my self-discipline through strict and often negating instructions. And American and international researchers have actively and selflessly supported me as potential-conscious friends despite the physical distance and helped shape my current self-esteem as a polymath... All in one, I owe my educational background to a non-linear and contradicting educational path with different teachers and competing educational ideals.
