Seminar with Professor HANS-JÖRG RHEINBERGER, Scientific Member of the Max Planck Society and Director at the Max Planck Institute for the History of Science, Berlin.
Tuesday 23 June, 14.00-16.00
According to the „two cultures“ thesis, the natural sciences and the humanities have, in the course of the 20th century, grown apart into fields of knowledge that do not understand each other anymore. In this lecture, Hans-Jörg Rheinberger destabilizes the contours of this black-and-white thinking and presents the history of disciplines as dramatically ever-changing formations. Contrasting respective positions of Cassirer, Mannheim, Bachelard and Bourdieu, he discusses concepts of nature and culture on the one hand, and formations of knowledge beyond disciplines on the other.
The gaze beyond – or better, below – the disciplines can be understood as a reaction to the fact that the disciplinary dichotomy between nature and spirit has started to be fundamentally transformed throughout the 20th century. This plea from the point of view of a science historian, instead of looking backwards, aims at promoting a new culture of mutual „call-out-and-in” to deal with an epistemic universe henceforth no longer comprehensible in a dual but in an irreducibly plural mode.
