LinkedinMy name is Mahmoud Rasmi and I am currently a Lecturer of Philosophy at the American University of Beirut. In July 2015, I completed my Ph.D. in Philosophy in the Department of Philosophy at the University of Salamanca, Spain. In my Ph.D. dissertation I focus on aesthetics and the philosophy of mythology of the German philosopher Friedrich Schelling arguing for a tautegorical interpretation of the cinematic image taking as an example the films of the Russian director Andrei Tarkovsky. The title of my dissertation is: “Mythopoesis, Aesthetics and Artistic Creation: Towards a Tautegorical Interpretation of the Cinematic Image.” My Areas of Specialization include Aesthetics and Philosophy of Art, Ethics, Friedrich Schelling, German Idealism, Philosophy of Mythology, Philosophy and Film. I also have a special interest in Philosophy of Sports, and more recently in the latest developments in Philosophy and Artificial Intelligence.
