Philosophical Explorations

Welcome to Jürgen Braungardt's Website

This website brings a philosophical perspective to current events and trends:

  • What are the visions we have for our collective future?

  • How do we balance humanity with technological progress?

  • What is humanity in the first place?

  • What do we mean by "nature," and how do we relate to the nature around us, as well as to our own nature?

I created this website to bring together different interests, reflect on my own traditions, and pursue some big questions. The short texts assembled here were written over the last three decades.

I also collected texts from various authors that I use for teaching and reference. They are grouped by topics and organized into small independent websites, accessible through the Menu links.

I am a psychotherapist and I also teach philosophy in the Bay Area of San Francisco. I grew up in Bavaria, Germany, and studied Philosophy and Theology in Munich and Berkeley.
