The focus of my work are the theoretical foundations of problem-solving. For more than 50 years, psychology has been based on an information-theoretical and cognitivist paradigm. My goal is to inspire the field with new impulses.

Phenomenology is a philosophical way of thought that can foster psychological science. I try to renovate this school of thought by adapting it to the challenges of the 21st century. 

Theoretical psychology reflects on the controversies of the past centuries to comprehend modern predicaments. It is paramount to see the context of our scientific work in order to understand its limitations and perspectives.
