RESEARCHER | AUTHOR | PODCASTER

Why am I in The Walled Garden? Stoicism has been a part of my life for a couple of years now, and I am eager to explore it further–both theoretically and practically. Somehow, the theoretical side comes naturally to me; I work as a philosopher in academia, namely at a German research center (a vibrant place!). I also work as a professor and lecturer (we Germans say: Privatdozent) at university. More recently, I published a book on how to live like a Stoic for the general audience in Germany, and I am also a co-host of the first German-speaking podcast debating the Stoic philosophy of life. In my more practical endeavours, I work as a certified psychological counsellor and mentor, using Stoic techniques (among others) to help people improve their life.

"There are obviously many equally good ways of leading a good life. This, however, does not mean that all ways are equally good. Some are beyond the space of goodness. It's the task of ethics and critical thinking to explore where the boundary line between good and evil exists."

Original German title: "Als Stoiker leben. Was wir wissen und was wir üben müssen. WBG: 2022"; English transl.: "Living Like a Stoic. What We Must Know and What We Must Practice."
