About

Sometimes academic work is suffocating, it opposes the Aristotelian imperative to love the life of thinking. This website is the symptom of the loss of this love, it is a symptom of the encounter with the academic domain. It encompasses a multitude of ideas which I found interesting enough to say out loud. Arguments which I thought would be useful to bestow a passion for thinking. As a teacher, I enjoy doing that.

You will probably run into articles having to do with psychoanalysis, and philosophy, but sometimes critical article revolving contemporary culture. Please feel free to comment and start a discussion, I promise to – at least – offer an entertaining challenge. Moreover, please contact me personally with any question, who knows, we can always meet for a coffee and discuss these important matters further.
