Interests: Joerg Fingerhut holds a doctorate in philosophy and researches in interdisciplinary collaborations with neuroscientists and psychologists on how we interact with cultural artefacts – including the built environment, architecture, but also images and films – how we perceive them and how we judge them aesthetically. A special role is played by the philosophy of embodiment, which focuses on the role of movement and the human body in the perception and evaluation of the environment.

He was previously a member of the research groups “Functions of Consciousness” (Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Sciences and Humanities) and “Image Act and Embodiment” (Humboldt-Universit├Ąt zu Berlin).
