Dr. Fergus Anderson

Research

Dr Fergus Anderson is a Senior Lecturer at Crossfields Institute, UK and a Research Fellow at Institut für Bildung und Gesellschaftliche Innovation (IBUGI) in Bonn, Germany. In his role at Crossfields Institute, Fergus is the Programme Leader for a state recognised postgraduate certificate in Philosophy and Practice of Integrative Education.

As well as leading the programme he also teaches Steiner’s philosophy and anthroposophy on this and other programmes. In collaboration with IBUGI, Fergus has organised more than seven international academic research conferences, the latest of which took place at the University of Cumbria (UK) in 2018.

Fergus has studied and researched Steiner’s philosophy and anthroposophy since the early 1990s and has also worked practically for many years with Steiner’s approach to meditation as well as with other approaches. In 2012, he completed his Masters with a dissertation on the role of imaginative picturing in Steiner’s meditative exercises. In 2018, Fergus was awarded a Magna Cum Laude by Alanus University, Bonn, for his Doctorate on the experience of thinking. In this research he took a first-person approach to explore the nature of the experience of thinking, and he used findings from this to challenge aspects of the cognitive phenomenology debate, which is a current debate in philosophy of mind.

Zwischen 2015 und 2019 absolvierte Fergus eine Ausbildung in Mikrophänomenologie, einer phänomenologischen Forschungsmethode, die von einer wachsenden Zahl von Forschern in der Bewusstseinsforschung und der Psychologie angewandt wird. Fergus‘ gegenwärtige Forschungsinteressen konzentrieren sich auf die Fortsetzung und Vertiefung seiner Doktorarbeit über die Natur der Erfahrung des Denkens. Er wendet weiterhin Ego-Person-Methoden an und verwendet zunehmend meditative Methoden, welche er als den besten Weg betrachtet, um die Erfahrung des Denkens zugänglich zu machen und zu erforschen.
