Robert Kalman

Robert Kalman (University of Siegen, Germany) is currently working on his PhD-thesis concerning "A Philosophical Theory of the Aesthetics of the Schnittstelle" ("Schnittstelle" is a German expression for a place, where, according to Robert, physical interfaces are functionally linked to semantic processes). Since his work claims to be grounded on epistemological reasoning and current developments in the philosophy of language, the main interests he followed during the Erasmus Program concerned the descriptional and explanatory values of concepts and arguments in current theories of literature. Thus his cognitive interest can be described as: A philosophy of literature in the context of a philosophy of arts.
