Sabine Winters

Freelance Philosopher


Sabine Winters (1983) is a professional in the world of philosophy of science and art. She is practically oriented and interested in the process of idea development and the ‘how and why’ behind a theory or process.

Questioning established frameworks has become a second nature to her. Sabine is an intrinsically motivated enthusiastic explorer, always open to new ideas and perspectives.


Utrecht University – Bachelor’s degree- Philosophy – 2013 – 2020 (part-time)

Radboud University – Master’s degree – Specialization Philosophy of Science 2020 – 2022

As a philosopher you do not offer ready-made solutions, but through a critical and creative handling of a large diversity of contemporary issues you are able to create new frameworks through which you make a meaningful contribution to possible solutions. In addition, the Master’s specialization in Philosophy and Science analyses the relation of philosophy and science in terms of their historical development, as well as the current situation. My research is focused on the role of imagination in the Natural Sciences.

Fillip Studios x Future Based residency programme (2019 – 2020)

Head of residency programme

The programme includes a collaboration between my philosophy platform, Future Based and design studio Fillip Studios. In this programme, multiple researchers and artists bundle their forces over the course of three months to work collaboratively on a real case that is provided by case-holders (i.e. the municipality of Arnhem, University Twente, Museum Arnhem). Aside from constructing and organizing the programme I also supervise students during the interdisciplinary working process.
