Die Funzel, a student magazine originating in the Munich school for philosophy, brings thinkers together. Why, one could say, is this still needed in the time of social media? When we started our studies, the picture we got was confusing: a jungle of texts to be read, a maze of philosophical schools, and an astonishing number of people who all write and think.

This is reflected by dozens of student magazines. They are all edited by students inside their departments, and they mostly cover the same topics. But - and this is what we considered problematic - they scarcely interact. So why do we not create a platform that finds the most interesting articles and shares them in a community that does not depend on a special institute? This is what gave birth to Die Funzel. In the tradition of the satirical Viennese magazine Die Fackel we want to highlight what current philosophical students listen to, what they like, what they think and what they speak about.

The special character of the Munich school for philosophy is enabling us to do so. With a high number of students studying non-philosophical subjects at other universities, the school provides uns with a diverse intellectual community. Apart from that, the school already engages as a hotspot for a lot of intersectional philosophical debates. It obviously remains the perfect base for our mission. So why do we need you?

As we expand the limits of an ordinary student magazine, we need to find supporters for our project. We do not only print for our school, but for all the students at other institutes that are involved in our debates. These further costs need to compensated. Apart from that is is a perpetual effort to maintain our blog page. If you join us on our journey, you are going to be part of a highly inspiring, thriving network that brings thoughts and people together!

Wenn wir 80 Patreons erreichen, werden wir einen Funzel-Podcast launchen: wir interviewen Künstler und persons of philosophical interest bei Kerzenschein und veröffentlichen in regelmäßigem Abstand Videos davon!
