Philosophical Explorations

Welcome to Jürgen Braungardt's Website

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

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 have taught philosophy 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.
