Research area: The philosophy of science problems involved in the search for a transdisciplinary theory of information, meaning, cognition and communication. It has to be naturalistic and include a phenomenological view in its ontology and epistemology as well as a view of language as an embodied social and cognitive organizer and coordinator. Another area is the impact of scientific thinking in the mass media in competition with common sense, political and religious thinking.
