Philosophical Explorations

Welcome to Jürgen Braungardt's Website

This website offers a philosophical perspective on current events and trends, inviting readers to ponder profound questions such as:

We currently navigate major transformations and witness the emergence of a global society, so it is crucial to examine the elements and features of this developing global civilization.

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. 

For readers with short attention spans, I recommend you start with my collection of quotes and short philosophical insights.  

I am a psychotherapist and I have taught philosophy at the California State University in the Bay Area of San Francisco for 24 years.  I grew up in Bavaria, Germany, and studied Philosophy, Theology, Psychology, and German Literature in Munich and Berkeley.
