Christoph Durt at the University of Vienna


I’m Christoph Durt (pronounced: dooart). I’m a philosopher and interdisciplinary researcher with a focus on:

  1. the human mind
  2. digital technologies such as Artificial Intelligence (AI)
  3. the intricate interrelation between the two

I’m investigating these in my research and publications as well as in academic projects on these topics. I build on the insights by philosophers of very different perspectives. Some of these I have explored in my courses and lectures at Munich University, Vienna University, the University of California at Berkeley (UCB), and the University of California at Santa Cruz (UCSC), where I received an exceptional teaching award. Topics include:

  • history of philosophy
  • phenomenology
  • Wittgenstein
  • Ancient Greek
  • Early Modern
  • Kant
  • 19ᵗʰ and 20ᵗʰ century philosophy
  • Intercultural and Latin American philosophy

If you are interested, you may still be able to join a free online seminar on Artificial Intelligence and Human Orientation, which I teach together with Lucy Osler. We meet monthly from April to December 2023.
