Andreas Weber is a Berlin-based philosopher, biologist, and writer. He is the author of The Biology of Wonder: Aliveness, Feeling, and the Metamorphosis of Science; Biopoetics: Towards an Existential Biology; and Matter and Desire: An Erotic Ecology, one of the required texts for Seminary of the Wild's Eco-Ministry program. He has degrees in Marine Biology and Cultural Studies and teaches philosophy at Leuphana University, Lüneburg, and the University of Fine Arts, Berlin.


Andreas' work is focusing on a re-evaluation of our understanding of the living. He is proposing to understand organsims as subjects and hence the biosphere as a meaning-creating and poetic reality. Accordingly, Andreas holds that an economy inspired by nature should not be designed as a mechanistic optimization machine, but rather as an ecosystem which transforms mutual sharing of matter and energy in a deepened meaning.
