Joerg Fingerhut

Berlin School of Mind and Brain, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin
Postdoctoral Researcher
Berlin, Germany
I am a postdoctoral researcher at the Berlin School of Mind and Brain. Before I did my PhD as a member of the "Collegium Picture Act & Embodiment," a joint project of art historians and philosophers. I was "Art & Neuroscience Postdoctoral Fellow” at Columbia University (2012), and assistant professor at the University of Stuttgart (2012-2015).

My research focus is on the relation of embodied philosophy of mind and artifacts, such as architecture, pictures, and moving images. A specific interest is in the cultural constitution of our mental states (integrative perspective on artifacts) and our aesthetic experience of them (interactionist perspective on artifacts). I am a philosopher by training but conduct behavioral experiments on our aesthetic engagement with art and collaborate with other researchers on more sophisticated experimental settings that include brain imaging and other physiological measures.
