About my Writings

My writings are based on 15 years of research in Philosophy, Sociology and Cultural Sciences. For my Ph.D.-work I did 8 years of research in Turkey, mainly Istanbul. Additionally, I have a lot of long-term experience in different countries like Spain, Greece, Costa Rica, Mexico, New Zealand. 

I bring a fresh and sometimes challenging perspective on current cultural and global issues. My thinking and feeling is inspired by ancient greek philosophical teachings (Plato, Aristotle) as well as the German poets and thinkers (Schiller, Goethe, Simmel, Arendt e.g.), which I translate into a language that everyone can understand.

In addition to the Eastern Spiritual Teachings, that are spread all over the World nowadays, my specialty is bringing back to live the Treasures of our forgotten European Spiritual Heritage (Ancient Greek Philosophy) for a Modern Daily Life and to solve problems of modern life by overcoming the main of all problems: The Polarization of the World.

My work could be summarized as “Spiritual Sociology”. I am a Heartful Intellectual that tries to move your Heart.

I am looking very much forward to write an article for you and translate my knowledge to the needs and interests of your audience.

"And since the middle has no name, the extremes seem to fight over it as if it were unoccupied. But where there is excess and deficiency, there is also a middle."

The Nicomachean Ethics 350 B.C.
Friedrich Schiller
"Reason has done what it can do, when it finds and establishes the law. It is the courageous will and the living feeling that must carry it out. If the Enlightenment has so far proved its victorious power so little, this is not due to the intellect, which did not know how to unveil it, but to the heart, which closed itself to it."

Aesthetical Letters 1759
Adam Smith
"How selfish soever man may be supposed, there are evidently some principles in his nature, which interest him in the fortune of others, and render their happiness necessary to him, though he derives nothing from it except the pleasure of seeing it".

The Theory of Moral Sentiments 1759
Georg Simmel
"The one taken into apprenticeship with a master thereby became a member of his family, etc.; in short, professional employment centralized the whole life, the political and heart life often included, in the most energetic way."

Sociology 1908
Hannah Arendt
"Every man, it was assumed, carried within himself a voice that told him what was right and what was wrong, and this regardless of the law of the land and the voices of his fellows."

Some Thoughts of Moral Philosophy 1965
