Sabine Winters

Freelance Philosopher







I work as a freelance philosopher (of science), and as a professional in the world of philosophy. I am practically oriented and interested in the process of idea development and the ‘how and why’ behind a theory or process. Over the last seven years, I have organized, directed, and programmed many interdisciplinary workshops, meetings, and lectures – in assignment as well as for my platform, Future Based. I have extensive experience in film and philosophy lectures, utopian and dystopian thinking, philosophy of science (astronomy), interdisciplinary research, and philosophy.

I believe that interdisciplinary research allows for a synthesis of ideas that integrates characteristics from different disciplines. The crossing of borders between disciplines can be highly potent spaces, but the challenge lies in how to bridge the different disciplines in such ways that they can trade and integrate information successfully. Moreover, studying topics thematically is an ideal way to bring a variety of ideas and approaches together, which can result in inspiration, new perspectives, and meaningful learning. As a philosopher of science, I have a strong focus in my research on philosophy in astronomy and space.

As the founder of the Future Based platform I’m responsible for curating the program, as well as executing the projects and ideas. I now work with a (permanent) team of freelancers to ensure the continuity of Future Based. For more information and personal motivation on this project, please visit this link.
