Sybille Krämer

Sybille Krämer is a media philosopher. Until 2018, she was Professor of Philosophy at the Free University of Berlin, while currently she is a Guest Researcher at the Leuphana University of Lüneburg. In 2016, the University of Linköping awarded her an honorary doctorate. Her outstanding research focuses on a broad area of topics ranging all the way from the philosophy of language, theories of mind and consciousness, to performative and embodiment theories.

The epistemology of media, symbolic machines, cultural techniques of formalization and digitality, have always been at the core of her insightful reflections. Her works were translated into numerous languages, including English, Spanish, French, Italian, Hungarian, Turkish, Chinese and Japanese. Her latest monograph, Figuration, Anschauung, Erkenntnis: Grundlinien einer Diagrammatologie (Suhrkamp, 2016) explores the epistemological potentialities of visual tools like diagrams throughout the history of philosophy.
