Overview

short biography Markus F. Peschl (*1965) is professor for Cognitive Science and Philosophy of Science at
the Dept. of Philosophy [Research Group Philosophy of Science: Cultures and
Technologies of Knowledge], University of Vienna, Austria. He spent two years at the
University of California, San Diego (UCSD, cognitive science, neuroscience, and
philosophy department) and 1/2 year at the University of Sussex for post-doctoral
research. Furthermore, he studied philosophy for 1 1/2 years in France.
research and fields His focus of research is on the question of knowledge (knowledge
of competence creation/innovation, construction, and representation of knowledge) in various
contexts: in natural and artificial cognitive (neural) systems, in science, in organizations,
in educational settings, as well as in the context of knowledge technologies and their
embedding in social systems. The philosophical, epistemological, anthropological,
technological, and cognitive foundations of the human person and his/her knowledge are
at the center of his attention. He follows a radically interdisciplinary approach integrating
concepts from the natural sciences, philosophy (of science), from the humanities, as well
as from (knowledge) technology.
Working on the concept of “socio-epistemological engineering” he integrates concepts of
knowledge creation/innovation, knowledge technologies, educational technologies
(alternative approaches to [e-]/blended-learning processes, knowledge didactics, etc.)
with epistemological and social aspects of knowledge creation, and social
innovation/engineering. Furthermore, he works in the fields of interdisciplinary curriculum
development (e.g., joint masters degree in cognitive science (MEi:CogSci), “studium
generale”, etc.) and personality development for gifted students.
Currently he is working in the field of radical innovation where he developed the
concepts of Emergent Innovation and Enabling Spaces.
M. Peschl has published 6 books and more than 80 papers in international journals and
collections. For further information see: http://www.univie.ac.at/knowledge/peschl/
theoretical focus, Innovation and knowledge creation, knowledge management, organizational
research, and learning, and knowledge technologies:
background  foundations and methods of knowledge creation, (radical) innovation, and
knowledge negotiation
 integration of organizational/collective and individual learning processes
 theoretical foundations of presencing, U-theory, emergent innovation
 Social innovation
[Theory of] Knowledge, cognition, and philosophy of science:

creation/generation, (philosophy of) science, innovation, knowledge
management, social dimension of knowledge
 relationship: reality—cognition—knowledge—science, constructivist approaches
 anthropology of the human person and knowledge
 unity of knowledge, integration of natural sciences, humanities, and philosophy
[Theoretical foundations of] Knowledge transfer and knowledge creation in
educational processes:
 alternative concepts/approaches in learning/teaching processes
 knowledge oriented teaching, knowledge organization, “knowledge didactics”
 integration of eLearning and knowledge processes, blended learning
High ability/gifted education/”Hochbegabung” and personality development:
 transfer of “existential forms of knowledge”
 the role of philosophy of science, philosophy, ethics, and values in personality
development of gifted persons
 integration of cognition, emotion and personality in persons with high ability
Knowledge representation in natural and artificial cognitive systems:
 neural basis of knowledge representation
 computational neuroscience/connectionism, and knowledge representation,
embodiment and situated cognition
