About me


Dr Simon Fokt holds a PhD in Philosophy from the University of St Andrews, Scotland, and currently lectures at HTW Berlin. His academic work focuses on aesthetics, applied ethics, and metaphilosophy. His focus on taking complex philosophical concepts out of the academic discourse and into the world lead him to teach medical ethics to doctors and nurses, data ethics to data scientists and IT professionals, and adapt Aristotle’s virtue ethical concepts to modern masculinity.


In 2015, Dr Fokt launched the Diversity Reading List – an online resource which promotes equality and diversity in universities teaching. The project won multiple grants from prestigious associations, universities and journals, and continues to thrive under his management.
