interests

Compelling stories come in many forms. Whether prose or drama, research or politics: A concise, well-told narrative is my jump-off point from which all further thinking develops. For that, I choose a broad approach that goes beyond secluded thinking traditions. Rather, my interest peeks when one lifeworld (Lebenswelt) encounters another and suspends its one view ever so briefly to reconstruct and relate to what the other sees and experiences.
