I want to help

Dr. Martin E. Rosenberg

I am an independent scholar and house-husband living in Pittsburgh. I write about the history of emergence as a concept; about competing models of time and the ideological, aesthetic, social and political stakes of dominance and resistance, as well as the scientific and theological origins of fascism; embodied and distributed cognition and the arts, particularly the work of Marcel Duchamp, Kiki Smith, the dance troup Pilobolus, the architecture of Arakawa and Gins, and jazz performance; and about the agency of metaphor in trans-disciplinary inquiry. Some of the writers, artists, musicians, scientists and philosophers I have written about include Ezra Pound, Wallace Stevens, Thomas Pynchon and Phillip K. Dick, Samuel Beckett, Sam Shepard; Marcel Duchamp, Joseph Beuys, Robert Smithson, Kiki Smith, Arakawa and Gins; John Cage, Charlie Parker, Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Ornette Coleman, Dave Holland; Henri Bergson, Henri Poincare, Sigmund Freud, Mikhail Bakhtin, Walter Benjamin, Merleau-Ponty, Albert Einstein and John Wheeler, Richard Feynman, Ilya Prigogine, Henri Atlan, Humberto Maturana and Francisco Varela, Edwin Hutchins, Jean Petitot, Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guattari. I also play jazz guitar, and have written numerous jazz compositions, and have begun performing again in the Pittsburgh area, a jazz town, rich and deep in history and talent.
