He was then the founding rector of a private university in the principality of Liechtenstein, the Liechtenstein University of Applied Sciences, and since 2005 has been a professor and dean of the Sigmund Freud University Vienna.

The marvellous ability to change mental and physiological functions (1990), Consciousness. Multidimensional drafts (1992) and Freud and the Neurosciences.
