Charlotte Bigg (Paris)

Remarks

Since the nineteenth century, astronomical spectacle has been one of the major loci where spatial and visual cultures of modernity have been elaborated and experienced at the intersection of science, technology and spectacle. I will present PARS, a collective undertaking combining academic research with artistic and professional mediation that looks into the performance, the material and technological characteristics of astronomical shows, their social and cultural contexts but also their perception and experience by different audiences. Taking the example of the planetarium, I will show how we explore the shared experience of astronomical spectacles and the ways in which it contributed and might continue to foster new senses of the collective and of the modern world. Dr. Charlotte Bigg promovierte an der Universität Cambridge nach dem Studium der Wissenschaftstheorie und der Geschichte an den Universitäten von Victoria (Kanada) und Oxford. Anschließend arbeitete sie am Max-Planck-Institut für Wissenschaftsgeschichte in Berlin und als wissenschaftliche Mitarbeiterin an der ETH Zürich. Seit 2009 forscht sie am Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique, Centre Alexandre Koyré und unterrichtet an der École des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales, Paris. Sie arbeitet derzeit über verschiedenen Formen der öffentlichen Darstellung der Wissenschaften (von Ausstellungen und Vorstellungen bis hin zu Architektur) sowie über die visuellen Kulturen der physikalischen Wissenschaften.

C06 "Transfer and Interference. Configurations of Knowledge in the Period of the Greek Homines Novi in the Ottoman Empire (1641-1730)"

Lecturer

Déborah Blocker, Simone Testa, Mira Becker-Sawatzky, Ulrike Schneider

Remarks

Although the Confessionalization paradigm was developed within the context of Early Modern Studies stressing aspects of confession- and state-building in Post-Reformation Europe, a growing tendency in recent scholarship attempts to expand the paradigm on a global scale. The Ottoman Empire seems to be a prominent case in this discussion on the applicability of the paradigm in different historical contexts, involving all three main religions (Muslims, Jews and Christians) in efforts of determining their confessional identities. Having in mind that projects aiming to the standardization of the Eastern Christian confession were initiated throughout the Greek Orthodox 17th century, this workshop focuses on the potential of the Confessionalization paradigm for the purposes of a History of Knowledge regarding the clerical milieus of the Eastern Church, i.e. on the multiple processes of knowledge transfer that emerged, were designed or materialized, interweaved or clashed in the context and as a result of the challenges summarized under the heading of Confessionalization. Key questions will concern Confessionalization as opening up a field of inter-confessional communication and conflict, negotiation and modification of knowledge; interpersonal networks and networks of books, genres and discourses in motion; materialities and medialities of transfer; accommodation strategies and institution-building processes in Eastern Christianity; the role of confessionally motivated negation both as an obstacle and as a form of knowledge transfer, fluent confessional identities and trans-confessional discourses in clerical milieus.

B05 "Theorie und Ästhetik elusiven Wissens in der Frühen Neuzeit: Transfer und Institutionalisierung"

Lecturer

Déborah Blocker, Simone Testa, Mira Becker-Sawatzky, Ulrike Schneider

Remarks

Im Workshop wird der Frage nachgegangen, wie in Akademien des 16. und 17. Jahrhunderts in Italien poetische und kunsttheoretische Wissensbestände erörtert und tradiert werden. Damit wird es zum einen um frühneuzeitliche Akademien als Institutionen von Wissensaushandlungen und als Gelehrtenzirkel soziopolitischen Anspruchs gehen und zum anderen um Wissensformen, die mit ästhetischen Erfahrungs-und Erkenntnismodi korreliert sind und dadurch begrifflich schwer einholbar sind. So wird wissensgeschichtlich das Spannungsfeld von Tradition und Innovation, von Regelwerk und Kreativität in den Blick genommen. Gemäß der Thematik des Teilprojekts B05 wird dabei der epistemische Modus elusiven Wissens mit Blick auf Transfer und Institutionalisierung untersucht und in Austausch gebracht mit anderen aktuellen, internationalen Forschungsprojekten. Zudem dient der Workshop der Vorbereitung auf die thematisch weiter gefasste Akademien-Tagung der SFB-Teilprojekte A07, B05, C09 im Mai 2018.

The Experimental and Interdisciplinary Reconfiguration of Dense and Rare in the Long Sixteenth-Century

Lecturer

Arianna Borrelli, Stephen Clucas, Dana Jalobeanu, Silvia Manzo, Cesare Pastorino

Remarks

The theme of this workshop is the multidisciplinary research and experimentation on “dense and rare” –the rarefaction and condensation of matter– in the long sixteenth-century. Presenters will discuss work-in-progress towards a journal special issue. Papers will consider cases in which observation and practical experimentation on dense and rare played a major part in investigations, informing and/or complementing philosophical discussions. The workshop will adopt a markedly multidisciplinary perspective, examining examples often connecting quite different areas of experimentation, learning and natural-philosophical reflection.

Lecturer

Andrew Abbott (University of Chicago)

Remarks

The conjuncture of a number of historical forces, operating at several different time scales, conspires to create a crisis in expert knowledge and in “knowing” more broadly. These forces include unidirectional phenomena like the social democratization of education, the development of automated forms of knowing, the imposition of neoliberal management on the world of expertise, and the drift away from discursive towards imagistic embodiments of knowledge. But it also involves cyclical phenomena like the maturation of the twentieth century knowledge paradigm and the demographic transition in expert populations. In this talk Professor Abbott enumerates and relates these various historical rhythms and speculates on the possible futures of expertise. Andrew Abbott is the Gustavus F. and Ann M. Swift Distinguished Service Professor at the University of Chicago. Abbott’s major research interests lie in the sociology of occupations, professions, and work, the sociology of culture and knowledge, and social theory. Abbott also has longstanding interests in methods, heuristics, and the philosophy and practice of sociology. The event will be held in English with no translation into German. The WZB provides child care during the lecture. Please respond by November 17, 2017 to Friederike Theilen-Kosch: friederike.theilen-kosch@wzb.eu Our event location is wheelchair-accessible.

This workshop is an opportunity to bring together scholars and practitioners to jointly discuss and reflect on contents, approaches and methodologies that draw the link between synthetic biology and artistic research and how those can synergically interact by mutually interrogating and reconsidering their methodologies and modes of operation in an Artist in Residence program like KLAS. In this workshop we are particularly interested in discussions and perspectives that explore how different institutions, organizations and interest groups with relevant expertise and knowledge of research, innovation and education address contemporary challenges of future developments in and beyond their respective knowledge silos.

Remarks

The Discussion forum “Size Matters: XXL Projects in the Ancient World”, organized by the Research Group (B-2) XXL – Monumentalized Knowledge: Extra-Large Projects in Ancient Civilizations, examines building projects and other major construction tasks, looking in particular at their social signifi cance within ancient societies as seen through multi- and inter-disciplinary research approaches. In discussion sessions the results of the research group will be presented as well as new perspectives from other scholars. In particular, the social signifi cance of large-scale projects and their internal and external impact will be considered. Did major construction projects have a stabilizing e ect on society? How much power, work and energy was actually needed? Does big mean monumental automatically? These are just some of the questions that will be raised in the “Size Matters: XXL Projects in the Ancient World” forum.

Remarks

Today, various institutional archives at Humboldt-Universität, the BBAW, the German Archaeological Institute and elsewhere, some of which have only recently started to become accessible, document the work of the Prussian and GDR-researchers in Sudan between political and scientific ideals and realities. The Berlin-based research tradition in Sudan and the changes of scientific ‘Zeitgeist’, due to the upheavals of German and international history until the end of the GDR, are the subject of the conference.

Remarks

Admission free - Registration needed In many countries researchers are under pressure. When research generates uncomfortable insights it is often denied and countered with "alternative facts". The research community is denigrated as being part of the establishment, which argues only in its own interest. Experts are scolded, their budgets cut. Not only in the US, where Donald Trump denies the human causes of global warming. "The post-factual national populism that is currently haunting the world could become a threat to our civilization," warns the German climatologist Hans Joachim Schellnhuber. What has brought about this crisis of trust? How does the public perceive of science? And what conclusion do scientists have to draw?

Remarks

Life forces thought, it poses problems and constitutes, for philosophy, both a condition and an object. Whether framed through questions of epistemology and the philosophy of science, questions of ethics, of politics, of technics, of aesthetics or of metaphysics, conceptions of life and the living, while inherently and invariably transdisciplinary, remain at the core of philosophical thinking today. Accordingly, this second session in the series dis:positions gathers three protagonists of a moment du vivant within contemporary French philosophy, provoking a resolutely undisciplined conversation, a modulation of philosophy across all domains of knowledge.

In my paper I will give a general introduction to the origins and early developments of alchemy in the Graeco-Roman Egypt. On the one hand, I will discuss its possible Near-Eastern background, which is often evocated in the mythical narratives that ancient texts include about the discovery of the alchemical art. On the other hand, I will briefly present the reception of the earliest works on alchemy in Byzantium as well as in the Syriac and Arabic traditions.

Remarks

Number of seats is limited. Non SFB members are asked to register. Workshop des gräzistischen Teilprojekts "Prozesse der Traditionsbildung in der De interpretatione-Kommentierung der Spätantike" (Leitung: Prof. Dr. G. Uhlmann)        Der Workshop geht von dem Befund aus, dass Aristoteles in der Rhetorik mit dem Enthymem eine Form von Syllogismen explizit einführt, die sich dadurch auszeichnen, dass sie keine syllogistische Form im Sinne der Analytica Priora haben. Stattdessen arbeiten sie mit weniger Prämissen und damit, bestimmte Voraussetzungen für die Gültigkeit des Arguments nicht explizit zu machen. In diesem Sinn sucht der Workshop nach Formen impliziter Syllogistik und versucht damit, die Reichweite dieser Technik über die rationale Wissenschaftstheorie hinaus auszuloten. Insbesondere die Möglichkeit, implizite, vom Rezipienten zu ergänzende syllogistische Strukturen aufzufinden, ist dabei von Interesse. Dabei stehen nicht nur philosophische Texte im Fokus, sondern daneben und gleichberechtigt auch rhetorische und narrativ-literarische Werke. Exemplarisch sollen dabei solche Texte beleuchtet werden, die als philosophische oder philosophisch-propädeutische Narrative (in Viten oder Briefen) eine hybride Form jenseits rein rational-argumentierender oder rein-narrativ-veranschaulichender Texte besitzen. Wir wollen fragen, welche Funktionen verschiedene narrative Strategien in philosophischen und in dichterischen Texten besitzen und in welchem Verhältnis sie zu explizit und implizit syllogistischen Argumentationsweisen stehen. Besonderes Augenmerk soll dabei die Frage erhalten, wie veranschaulichende Strategien sich zu rational argumentierenden verhalten und welche Textsorten oder Strategien implizit syllogistische Argumentationsweisen favorisieren. In dem Workshop soll der historische Fokus die Zeiträume von Antike, Mittelalter und Früher Neuzeit umfassen und verschiedene exemplarische Fallstudien aufeinander beziehen.

Remarks

As scholars and curators turn to technological means for exploring the collections of libraries, archives, and museums, they increasingly turn to data visualization to express relations and facilitate search and discovery. At the same time, such institutions also offer ready typologies for encountering, interacting with, and discovering texts and objects. The gallery, the reading room, the performance space—to name just three—offer not only spaces, but a rich array of social forms and experiences. How can data visualization be brought into dialogue with the senses; with interaction, with civic engagement? Taking a series of recent projects as cases, we'll discuss how metaLAB explores data-driven creative works that are critical, multisensory, and grounded in dialogic encounter.

Remarks

This work of Galen represents one of the mile stones and reference works of pre-modern pharmacology. Ḥunayn ibn Isḥāq produced a complete and highly refined Arabic translation, as coronation of a long lasting interest in this work. The Arabic text, however, is not merely a collateral transmission of the Greek original. This seminar will show the students the independent development of the Arabic tradition, the peculiarities of the manuscript witnesses, and the editorial approach to this rich text. This historical and textual analysis aim at showing to its full extent how the richness and complexity of the Arabic version of Galen’s On Simple Drugs is the best contribution that can be offered for a deeper understanding of the Greek Galen.

Friederike Wille

Remarks

Friederike Wille untersucht in ihrem Forschungsprojekt die je unterschiedlichen, komplexen Vernetzungen von literarischem Text, Bild und Kommentar in den Manuskripten der Commedia im 14. und 15. Jahrhundert.  Nicht nur die Topologien der Seiten und Aspekte der mise en page (Rahmen, Ornament, Initialen, Schriftspiegel, Bilder) sondern auch das Buch in seiner Materialität und Funktion, sowie seine medialen Bedingungen wie der Akt des Blätterns werden in den Blick genommen. Wesentlich ist außerdem die Analyse der je spezifischen Verknüpfung mit Diskursen und Figurationen des Jenseits außerhalb des Buches. Evidentiaerscheint dabei als zentrale Kategorie, weil sich in ihr Rhetorik, Wissensordnung und Weltordnung bündeln, deren Kohärenz Dante in seinem Text postuliert und inszeniert. Die  Spezifik von bebilderten Büchern in ihrer ästhetisch wirksamen Verschränkung von Lesbar- und Sichtbarmachung ist im Fall der Commedia-Manuskripte noch weiter zugespitzt, da vor Augen gestellt ist, wofür Augenzeugenschaft postuliert wird, die im Fall der Jenseitsreise an die poetische Inszenierung der gewährten visio geknüpft ist.

Remarks

Erziehungsgeschichten haben eine lange Tradition in der Literatur, sie sind aber auch jüngst wieder aktuell geworden. Die Krise der Bildung, die Bildungsgesellschaft, die neue Erziehung und jüngst auch die kulturelle Bildung sind öffentlich in aller Munde. Was aber macht die Literatur jenseits der Schlagworte sichtbar? Inwiefern verdeutlicht sie, wie der Einzelne diese Institutionen erlebt und sich selbst in diesem Erleben verändert? Was sagt sie über das Funktionieren, das Scheitern und über die Veränderungen unserer Bildungs- und Erziehungsinstitutionen? Wie verhält sie sich schließlich zu jener Erwartung, die nicht selten an sie herangetragen wird: dass die Literatur selber bilden solle?

Remarks

Plato famously aligns knowledge with non-spatial objects, and belief with spatial objects. But why? In particular, what other Platonic commitments explain that one? This workshop will take those questions as central. Participants (detailed schedule and titles TBA): Katja Vogt (Columbia University) Carrie Swanson (University of Iowa) Whitney Schwab (University of Maryland, Baltimore County) Matt Evans (University of Michigan) Jonathan Beere (Humboldt Universitaet zu Berlin) Joseph Barnes (Humboldt Universität zu Berlin)

Prof. Dr. Heinrich von Staden, Princeton University, New Jersey, USA

Remarks

When comparing Greek and Babylonian medicine, the role of magic or mageia in general within healing contexts is one of the crucial problems. How can we re-assess our perception of the ‘magical’ component in Greek medicine in relation to that of its neighbours? Is magic to be disclaimed as ‘superstition’, as the readings of classical authors might suggest?

Isaac’s Eye mixes the facts of Isaac Newton’s life with an equal dose of fiction to explore what great people are willing to sacrifice to become great people. It puts the history of science onstage, juxtaposing historical characters and facts with our 21st century based projection of them. Featuring a post-performance discussion with Dr. Regine Hengge, director Günther Grosser and the cast on Friday, March 27 in conjunction with Theater Scoutings Berlin!

Lecturer

Stefan M. Maul (Seminar für Alte Geschichte und Epigraphik, Ruprecht-Karls-Universität Heidelberg)

Remarks

The earliest commentaries on scientific texts which we have are from Babylonia, from the 7th century BCE, and although quite brief and cryptic, and often fragmentary, they form a substantial corpus of cuneiform texts, approximately 200 manuscripts in total. Many of these commentaries concern astronomy/astrology, lexicography, divination, and medicine, the majority of which have not been edited or translated. The methodologies of Babylonian commentaries have much in common with later Greek scholiasts, Rabbinic hermeneutics, Christian exegesis, and Islamic Tafsir, which is why the Dahlem seminar series intends to examine sample texts in Akkadian, Aramaic, Greek, Latin, Syriac, Arabic, and even Chinese. Each week an expert in these fields will be asked to present a text in translation and in the original, as a basis for comparison with texts in other languages but written with similar purposes in mind, to interpret and explain science.

Testimony/Bearing Witness. Current Controversies and Historical Perspectives

Location

Freie Universität Berlin, Institut für Philosophie, Habelschwerdter Allee 30, 14195 Berlin (Dahlem)

Remarks

Testimony and bearing witness are key figures in cultural and epistemological practices. Within current debates in the humanities both have turned into controversial concepts that convey seemingly incommensurate claims: On the one hand, testimony is seen as a reliable source of information and knowledge, as a piece of evidence promising objectivity (predominantly in discourses of epistemology and law). On the other hand, bearing witness carries ethical and political reflections in terms of memory and history (for instance in the testimonies of survivors of genocide and extreme violence). We are even confronted with diverse epistemological ambitions and methodological trajectories: At one end of the spectrum a general concept of testimony as knowledge through the words of others, is reflected; at the other end, there is a skepticism towards general definitions, combined with the desire to shape figures of bearing witness by tracing their manifold sources in religion and cultural history. This conference aims to channel the debate on bearing witness and giving testimony especially towards those aspects that appear precarious and controversial between philosophy and cultural history: What are the opportunities and limits involved in communicating epistemological and ethical, philosophical and cultural-historical, past and present perspectives on the phenomenon and concept of testimony and bearing witness?

Remarks

The earliest commentaries on scientific texts which we have are from Babylonia, from the 7th century BCE, and although quite brief and cryptic, and often fragmentary, they form a substantial corpus of cuneiform texts, approximately 200 manuscripts in total. Many of these commentaries concern astronomy/astrology, lexicography, divination, and medicine, the majority of which have not been edited or translated. The methodologies of Babylonian commentaries have much in common with later Greek scholiasts, Rabbinic hermeneutics, Christian exegesis, and Islamic Tafsir, which is why the Dahlem seminar series intends to examine sample texts in Akkadian, Aramaic, Greek, Latin, Syriac, Arabic, and even Chinese. Each week an expert in these fields will be asked to present a text in translation and in the original, as a basis for comparison with texts in other languages but written with similar purposes in mind, to interpret and explain science.

Travelling Controversy: Mālikī Networks and the Diffusion of Critiques of al-Ghazālī’s Revival of the Religious Sciences

Location

SFB-Villa, Schwendenerstraße 8, Sitzungsraum, 14195 Berlin-Dahlem

Lecturer

Prof. Ken Garden (Tufts University)

Remarks

The burning of al-Ghazālī’s The Revival of the Religious Sciences (Iḥyāʾ ʿulūm al-dīn) in Cordoba in 1109 - during the author’s lifetime - is well known, and has been taken as evidence both of the rapid diffusion of that epochal work from one end of the Islamic world to the other and of the aberration of the Islamic West in its reaction to the work. In fact, the violent rejection of the Revival in al-Andalus followed a pattern. This paper will explore the rapid transfer of both al-Ghazālī’s masterpiece and the controversies it engendered within three years through networks of Mālikī scholars from Khoresan to Alexandria to Ifriqīya to Cordoba.

Remarks

The earliest commentaries on scientific texts which we have are from Babylonia, from the 7th century BCE, and although quite brief and cryptic, and often fragmentary, they form a substantial corpus of cuneiform texts, approximately 200 manuscripts in total. Many of these commentaries concern astronomy/astrology, lexicography, divination, and medicine, the majority of which have not been edited or translated. The methodologies of Babylonian commentaries have much in common with later Greek scholiasts, Rabbinic hermeneutics, Christian exegesis, and Islamic Tafsir, which is why the Dahlem seminar series intends to examine sample texts in Akkadian, Aramaic, Greek, Latin, Syriac, Arabic, and even Chinese. Each week an expert in these fields will be asked to present a text in translation and in the original, as a basis for comparison with texts in other languages but written with similar purposes in mind, to interpret and explain science.

Location

Zentrum für Literatur- und Kulturforschung Berlin, Schützenstraße 18, 10117 Berlin, 3rd floor, Trajekte-Tagungsraum

Lecturer

Stefani Engelstein (University of Missouri)

Remarks

In the eighteenth century, Europeans began to classify historical systems genealogically, turning contemporary terms in these systems – whether languages, religions, races, species, or individuals – into siblings of varying degrees. This genealogical theory came to structure the modern subject, modern state, and methodologies of the life- and human-sciences. In this talk, I will explore the implications of this genealogical structure in both comparative philology and evolutionary theory of the long nineteenth century, and will analyze Goethe’s early interrogation of the system in Iphigenia auf Tauris. Within a language family, a sister language is a boundary object whose delineation enables, and yet simultaneously calls into question, the definition of any particular language; the speaking sibling puts similar pressure on the notion of the subject. Darwin turned naturalist epistemology on its head by endorsing this same contingency in biological classification. To reinforce threatened boundaries, both linguistics and evolutionary theory embraced unidirectional diversification, repudiating merger as »monstrous,« thus participating in an affective rhetoric also implicated in policing the genealogical boundaries between population groups.

Remarks

The workshop will examine case studies of the establishment and transfer of useful knowledge – be it theoretical, practical, codified, tacit and so on – across time and space, from the early modern period to the twentieth century. We are going to explore useful knowledge presenting examples related, for instance, to mining, agricultural science and practical mathematics. In general, we favour an integrated approach that explores fields as diverse as medicine, engineering or commerce. You are welcome to observe the workshop, but space is limited. Should you wish to attend, register with Nuria Monn.

Remarks

The conference aims at discussing the emergence and transmission of gynaecological knowledge from different angles in ancient medical theory and practice. Beside the medical approach, we will consider cultural practices and socio-religious norms that enable and constrain the production and application of gynaecological know-how (e.g. certain taboos on examining or touching the female body, etc.). The role and function of female specialists (e.g. healers, midwives or wet-nurses) as objects and subjects within ancient medical discourses will also be elaborated in further detail.

Remarks

Giovanni Battista Della Porta (1535–1615) was a well-known Neapolitan man of science of the Late Renaissance whose interests included cryptography, horticulture, magnetism, pneumatics, alchemy, physiognomy, and theatre performance. He contributed to optics with his exceptionally popular Magia naturalis („Natural Magic“) and with the treatise De Refractione („On refraction“). Although his work was widely read and appreciated by contemporaries, historians of science have for the most part given a negative assessment of it. The present workshop will attempt to redress the balance, bringing together outstanding international experts to discuss Della Porta and his role within the history of early modern optics. It will investigate Della Porta's approach to experiment as it emerged from a close study of his optical work and the impact of his optical insights on contemporary theories.

Remarks

We live in a time of data. Around us, tools for creating, storing, communicating, and manipulating data grow ever more sophisticated and ubiquitous. Yet, the cultural and intellectual frameworks that underlie our present data-saturated condition are old, and their histories illuminate important aspects of the present. In his lecture, Daniel Rosenberg will explore the long history of data, stretching back to the seventeenth century, emphasizing its foundations in early modernity. By tracing the historical concept of “data,” Rosenberg examines implications of new data-driven approaches in the humanities, and argues that even our contemporary self-understanding is mediated by data-analytic techniques. An intellectual and cultural historian, Daniel Rosenberg writes on a wide variety of subjects, including the history of information since the eighteenth century. Rosenberg has held fellowships from the National Endowment for the Humanities, Rutgers Center for the Critical Analysis of Contemporary Culture, the University of California Humanities Research Institute, the Princeton University Council of the Humanities, Max Planck Institute for the History of Science, and Stanford Humanities Center, among others.

Location

Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, Institut für Klassische Philologie, room 2249a (“Marmorsaal”)

Remarks

In this workshop we want to concentrate just on that period of Greco-Roman medical thought, in which the psychological was well established as legitimate part of the domain of the medical practitioner and thinker (i.e., a consideration for aspects of personality and emotions as elements of the pathological picture), on the one hand; and on the emergence of the psychiatric disease or syndrome in the nosological discussions alongside physiological diseases, on the other. This involves discussion of key methodological problems, and close reading of relevant texts that present questions and obscurities. The workshop is free to attend, but registration is required for organisational purposes, and in order to gain access to the material for discussion. For registration please email our administrator, Dr Friederike Herklotz

Remarks

The third ever cyclotron (atom smasher) to be built in the USA (Rochester, 1938) was decommissioned and transferred to India (Chandigarh, 1965-67) where it functions to date with the bulk of its original parts. There are three such reborn equipment and refurbished laboratories that I am aware of: Rice University, Texas (1961) to Universidad Nacional Autonoma de Mexico, Mexico City (1980s); (ii) Rice University, Texas (1961) to Ruđer Bošković Institute, Zagreb (1980s); (iii) parts from The Berliner Elektronenspeicherring-Gesellschaft für Synchrotronstrahlung (BESSY) in Berlin to the SESAME Project in Jordan (1990s). These laboratory systems - often running into hundreds of square meters - were transferred from their original setting and reassembled in their host locations in a different country with new buildings and, often, a new research agenda. Given that the equipment was meant for research in nuclear physics and it went to developing countries during the Cold War – there is a global story that emerges from looking at this "atomic trash". This is equally, I argue, a story of re-imagination and recreation of the laboratory space, its design and even more so, of its purpose.

Remarks

Embryology is the science of development. Historically, Christian Heinrich Pander and Karl Ernst von Baer are considered to be the founding fathers of the modern discipline in the first decades of the nineteenth century. In my talk, I will argue that understanding the ‚form of becoming’ in embryology required the establishment of a new conceptual framework, new experimental practices, observational techniques and new forms of visual representation of the living. I will trace visual and experimental techniques from the beginning of the nineteenth century to recent developments, from pictorial sequences to digital simulations of cell migration during embryogenesis. In particular, I will discuss the impact of new techniques of imaging and computing embryogenesis such as approaches of ‘in toto imaging’ on the understanding of embryological development in particular and on the biological concept of development in general.

Location

Lecturer

Giulia Giannini, (Centre Alexandre Koyré, Paris / MPIWG Berlin)

Remarks

Scientific academies are undoubtedly a great institutional novelty of the second half of the 17th century. Even though their history has been well explored, the Accademia del Cimento still remains a desideratum for the history of science, since it is neither correctly studied nor thoroughly and carefully explored. Founded in 1657 by Leopoldo of Tuscany the Accadema del Cimento was the first academy that existed in early modern period. It had a strangely short lifetime and a rather rapid development (1657–1667). The only publication availiable of the Academia del Cimento remains a single volume (Saggi di Naturali Esperienze, 1667) which comprises only a few of the experiments performed by their members. A novel, more careful and attentive investigation of the Cimento Academy is in order, an investigation that aims at revising deeply, if not subverting, what might be called the received vista of the nature, aims and scope of the Italian academy. In particular such an investigation cannot ignore a comparison between the Cimento and other scientific societies in Europe at that time nor the relations that the members of the Cimento academy maintained with the members of other scientific societies in Europe.

Lecturer

Jocelyn Benoist, Professor of Philosophy at the University Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne

Remarks

In his book ‘Concepts. Introduction à l’analyse’ (Ed. du Cerf, 2010, rep. Flammarion, 2013), Jocelyn Benoist has put forward a theory of concepts drawing on the resources of the contemporary philosophy of language and mind. He treats concepts as normative structures defining the multifarious ways of our commitments to reality. He emphasizes their flexibility, their boundedness, and their historicity. Thus, he wants to lay the foundation for what he calls a contextualist philosophy of mind. In his talk he will summarize the essential results of the book. He will particularly focus on the problem of the ‘generality’ of concepts. He will debunk some usual misinterpretations of that essential property, and show how, if correctly interpreted, it squares with contextuality.

Historical Representation – Narratives, Metaphors and Models

16:00

Location

TU Berlin, Straße des 17. Juni 135, 10623 Berlin, H 7112

Lecturer

Katherina Kinzel (Universität Wien)

Remarks

Hayden White famously argued that historical discourse takes a narrative form. He also claimed that narratives are in some sense epistemically deficient. This worry is based on his assumption that successful representation in history depends on the existence of structural similarities between the historical narrative and the sequence of actual historical events. Since such similarities cannot be identified, White concludes that narratives do not adequately or objectively represent the past; they allude to historical reality merely in metaphorical ways. White’s critics tried to avoid this conclusion either by denying the essentially narrative character of historiography (Noël Carroll) or by arguing that there do in fact exist structural similarities between (historical) narratives and (past) actions (David Carr). My own approach to the problem of historical representation takes a different route. Unlike Carroll, I do accept that historiography is narrative in character, but I reject the similarity account of historical representation that informs both White’s and Carr’s approaches. Building on contemporary pragmatic and inferentialist accounts of scientific representation (Bas Van Fraassen, Ronald Giere, Mauricio Suárez), I argue that historical narratives represent the past in a similar manner as scientific models represent their target domain: they exploit similarities and dissimilarities in selective and context-dependent ways in order to allow a user (reader) to draw informative inferences about the past. This approach to narratives, I argue, can make sense of many of the constructive features of historical discourse that were highlighted by White without buying into the more radical claim that historical narratives are epistemically deficient.

Remarks

In this paper, I will study a curious offspring of the magnetic philosophy. In the wake of De Magnete, a fully systematised “magnetic theology” was developed by writers from both sides of the religious divide that ran across Europe. These writers formed a curious mishmash, according to current day standards, and included the poet John Donne, the natural philosopher Robert Boyle, the puritan preacher Samuel Ward, the prominent judge Matthew Hale, and the Jesuit mathematician Athanasius Kircher. In the course of my paper, I will analyse what these diverse figures had in common, so that they would all be interested to write on magnetic theology, as well as their different approaches to this subject. Beyond the confines of the history of magnetic theology, this will also allow me to detail crucial differences and changes in the early development of natural theology, when it emerged as a specific genre at the end of the 17th century.

Making Human Difference Genetic in the 1950s

Remarks

This paper considers some of the varied practices that went into making populations into legible biological entities in the 1950s, work that was not simply self-evidently ‘biological’. Similar to other recent historical studies, I describe how the construction of blood groups as devices for producing human biological difference relied on notions of kinship, racial and national identity, multiple historical traditions, and questions and practices imported from geography and anthropology. But it is my argument that, this recourse to ‘cultural’ knowledge was not disingenuous or naïve, as some have implied; rather, this made blood-group genetics distinctively ‘human’. The paper concerns the work of Arthur Mourant, avid collected of blood groups and prolific author of what he called ‘blood group anthropology’. By calibrating his blood-group frequency data researchers like Mourant sought to give it the potential to reveal new knowledge about human difference and identity, even if the production of that knowledge was constantly deferred. By focusing on blood groups I outline an account of the way in which human difference was made genetic, and about how genetics was made human.

‘First Encounters’: Anthropological Field Work in ‘Mixed Race’ Aboriginal Communities in Australia, 1940–1965

Remarks

In Australia between 1940 and 1965, several anthropologists including Diane Barwick, Jeremy Beckett, Ruth Fink, Marie Reay and Judy Inglis undertook research in Aboriginal communities labelled as “mixed race.” This term had a confused application even at the time, referring to communities which self-identified as Aboriginal, but which government authorities viewed as transitional and assimilable. Such communities were neither bounded nor isolated and they presented theoretical and methodological challenges to anthropological study. These young researchers found themselves in a period of change: the traditional, colonial “anthropologist-subject” relationship was increasingly recognised as problematic and in need of re-theorising. They searched for new ways to conceptualise cultural identities, struggling to disentangle old racial definitions from the lived reality of Aboriginal communities. I examine the interactions which constituted their fieldwork in order to trace changes in anthropological understandings of Aboriginal identity.
