About me

Dr. Simon Reitze

Since 2001 I have been working as a coach for scientific papers and have
I have also assessed about 2000 projects as a lecturer. Therefore I know both sides: That of the coach and that of the lecturer.


  • born and raised in Solothurn

  • Doctor of Philosophy (University of Vienna 2002, with distinction, specialising in the philosophy of science)

  • lic. phil. I (German Studies, Anthropological Psychology, Philosophy; University of Zurich 1997)

  • Management consultant (Magistrat Vienna 2002)

  • Coach since 2001

From 2001 to 2008 I coached all doctoral students at the Vienna University of Economics and Business Administration on the topic of “philosophy of science” and evaluated their project work on the way to the expos√©. In addition to these approx. 2000 PhD students, I have supported numerous clients in individual coaching sessions on their thesis since 2001.

From 1999-2008 I helped develop marketing strategies and innovations for large companies as a consultant.


My literature

As a coach, I provide practical guidance to help you reach your goal. If you would like to know more about science, I would be happy to tell you more – or you can take a look at this UTB book, of which I am co-author.

How it all began

My "path of research"


To this day, I try to grow and develop knowledge in different forms. Through continuous learning, I have discovered valuable perspectives.

My own research

At the end of my dissertation, I realised that I had already intuitively carried the answer within me before I started my research. Now the answer was tangible for me and others. I began to share my knowledge as a lecturer.

Outside the university

At the same time, I discovered that there are also answers outside the university that are no less interesting. Examples of this are the schools of tai chi, yoga and meditation and their associated knowledge systems, which took on a university form in Asia thousands of years ago. Besides my full-time job as a science coach, I now translate Indian philosophy (Vedanta) on the side and teach meditation in an ancient Indian tradition. This is my balance.


We unearth knowledge, process it and make it accessible in order to bring it into dialogue - so that it unfolds its effect. That is the value of science. I consider it an honourable task to contribute to this communication and its quality. I would be happy to support you in developing your thoughts and putting them into a scientific form.
Sincerely, Dr. Simon Reitze
