To do what is impossible in real life. To interactively experience new worlds. To be who and what you always wanted to be. Computer games multiply the opportunities to plunge into ever new roles and try out things that don’t work in reality.
In recent years, the gaming scene has grown out of its niche. When we look beyond specific genres, such as first-person shooters, we discover that video games can bring us face to face with fundamental philosophical questions: How should I act? What is beautiful? And not least: Who am I?
Dominik Erhard is Editor in Chief of the online version of the magazine Philosophie and explores how games can help us learn about ourselves and the world together with students on the basis of selected games.
