GOOD DAY!

Thank you for visiting me virtually. I appreciate you dropping by. This is my little online shelter. My name is Ralf Wunderlich and I am a Berliner who ended up in Finland.

My life mainly evolves around football as I work as a football coach. But I have more sides to me than just this one. I am a studied philosopher and work(ed) several years in marketing. I also run my own record label, for a while professionally and successfully, nowadays just as a hobby. And as if this wouldn't be enough, I also write books. Oh well...

On this website I give you a little overview about those parts of my life. The rest remains private.

MY FOOTBALL LIFE

Football plays an important role in my life since I played in the long jump sandpit of the Mommsenstadion in 1982 while my father watched the home games of Sport-Club Charlottenburg in the 2. Bundesliga. Until today I am one of the very few fans of their football team (nowadays they play in the 7th division).
As at 2017, I played more than 1.000 games in the wonderful world of amateur football in Berlin and Finland.
Since 1998, I have continously been involved in the official sides of my clubs, for example as a member of the board or coach.
Through the years I improved my coaching skills up to the UEFA B coaching license from the German Football Association and also obtained a Professional Football Management license which allows me to work in e. g. Bundesliga-management.
Since 2015, I work as a professional football coach in Finland and try to find my luck there...

MY PHILOSOPHICAL LIFE

Does a good philosopher need his own philosophy? Some say yes, some say no. If I would have my own philosophy, I would fit into a category. This is (a priori) impossible:

  • Premise 1: (A priori) I do not fit into a category.
  • Premise 2: An own philosophy would put me into a category.
  • Conclusio: I cannot have an own philosophy.

*This argument is logically apodictic. And if not, then my philosophy would definitely contain colourful balloons.*

If I act upon the following maxims, do they define me?

  • Silence is the highest art form.

    Gerhart Hauptmann
  • The deeper the knowledge, the humbler the knowing one.

    Reinhold Niebuhr
  • Sometimes things are not as they seem, although usually they are.

    X-Files vs. Aristotle
  • Ockham's razor

    A neat scientific theory which can also be applied in everyday life.
  • I had four biscuits, and I ate one. Then I only had three.

Joking aside, yes, I am an actual philosopher with a degree and a diploma. I am more than just that though. I am a complex person.
