About Manuel Sassmann (王平國)

Manuel Sassmann studied Philosophy, Sinology and East Asian Art History at Stuttgart University and Ruprecht-Karls-University Heidelberg, where he graduated 2012 with a thesis on the theory of art of the German philosopher Hans Heinz Holz (1927-2011).  He spent about two years abroad studying at Chinese Culture University Taipei, Sun Yat-sen University Kaoshiung, and Tsinghua University Beijing. He also went on several archaeological field trips to China as a team member of the project "Buddhist Stone Scriptures in China" of the Heidelberg Academy of Sciences where he has been working as a research assistant since 2008.

In January 2013 he joined the Cluster as a Ph.D. Student in the project "Standards of Validity" (MC13.1), pursuing research on modes of argumentation in dialogical texts from Late Imperial China.
