Media of Meaning. How the World Makes a Difference
The subject of my doctoral thesis (working title: "Media of Meaning. How the World Makes a Difference") is the significance of symbolic media and symbolic practices – e.g. language, images, music, theatre, mathematics – for man’s relation to the world. My thesis, which takes its departure from Ernst Cassirer’s Philosophy of Symbolic Forms and takes into account the pluralism of symbolic media and symbolic practices, is a defense of an hermeneutic theory of meaning.
