About Ludger van Dijk

Ludger is working at the intersections of philosophy where ecological psychology and enactivism might meet, such as in pragmatism, Wittgensteinian philosophy and phenomenology. Exploring the scope of ecological psychology has led him to publish on the ecology of a range of human activities, from perceiving to imagining and thinking. Ludger holds a doctorate in Philosophy from the University of Antwerp and in Human Movement Sciences from the University of Groningen. The Research Foundation Flanders (FWO) awarded his work with a postdoctoral fellowship in 2017.
