Konstantinos G. Papageorgiou (PhD in Epistemology and Ethics), born in Athens, Greece. My area of focus is knowledge. I am actively interested in everything related to knowledge since I believe that a unified approach works best when it comes to both understanding and contributing science.

Influenced by the mathematician / composer D.E. Lekkas, I have founded the epistemological peer-reviewed journal Epistēmēs Metron Logos which I also run as the publishing director.

Apart from epistemology that is the philosophical field dealing with the validation, the source and the structure of knowledge (esp. when it comes to episteme and science), other knowledge-related research interests are:

  • Declarative and procedural types of knowledge
  • Acquisition of knowledge (always referring to both types)
  • Neurophysiological substrates of knowledge
  • Dissemination of knowledge
  • Teaching and education
  • Expertise (special and general)
  • Scientific (empiristic) vs epistemonic (theoretical) knowledge
  • Intuitive knowledge
  • Occult knowledge

My expertise in sports science is mostly related to the acquisition of motor expertise, where I follow a holistic approach. This has led to the creation of the Distal Method for expertise attainment. Important contributions to my worldview about education and expertise have always been my own engagement with classical music (its theory and as a guitarist), martial arts and tennis. Special needs education and psychotherapy (through both western and eastern traditions) complete my profile as a knowledge seeker.
