Prof. Dr. Thomas Filk

Prof. Dr. Thomas Filk studied physics in Bonn. After he finished his PhD in 1982 he was a fellow of the “Japanese Society for the Promotion of Science” at the University of Tokyo. Since 1992, he has taught physics at the university of Freiburg, where he is an associate professor and coordinator of studies in theoretical physics today. He is the author, translator, and editor of several scientific books. Since 2004 he has been a scientific associate at the Parmenides Center for the Study of Thinking. His scientific interests comprise “learning behaviour or neural networks”, “application of quantum structures to social and cognitive sciences”, “didactics of physics”, and “foundations of physics – in particular quantum theory and relativity”.
