Jascha Bareis studies the double degree Masters Political Theory at the Goethe University Frankfurt am Main and at the Technical University Darmstadt.

A Philosophical Investigation of Individualism in the Context of Facebook” supervised by Prof. Tsjalling Swierstra.
During an exchange semester at the Chinese University of Hong Kong he dived into Chinese philosophy, history and politics.
