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 by me over the last two decades.

I also collected texts from other authors that I used over the years for teaching and reference. I created several small websites for them; they are grouped by topics.

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.
