I’m Christoph Durt (pronounced: do-art), a philosopher, interdisciplinary researcher, and lecturer at the Technical University of Munich (TUM). I 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 subjects in my research and publications as well as in academic projects. I have explored a wide variety of philosophers in my courses and lectures, both online and in person 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:

  • Philosophy of AI and Digitization
  • Phenomenology
  • History of Philosophy (especially Ancient Greek, Descartes, Kant, Nietzsche, Wittgenstein)
  • Intercultural and Latin American philosophy

Currently, the Call For Papers is open for a conference on LLMs and the Patterns of Human Language Use in Berlin from August 29–30, 2024.

If you are interested, you may still be able to join a free online seminar on Artificial Intelligence and Human Orientation 2, which I teach together with Lucy Osler. We meet biweekly from January to April, 2024.
