The Genesis of Modern Natural Sciences -
How to find us
With his study "Galilei der Kuenstler – Die Zeichnung, der Mond, die Sonne"
[Galileo the Artist – The Drawing, the Moon, the Sun] published by Akademie Verlag Berlin in 2007,
art historian Prof. Dr. Horst Bredekamp has made an outstanding contribution to the early history
of modern science. Using Galileo as an example, he furnished proof that art plays a crucial role
in scientific representation. The historian of science Prof. Dr. Juergen Renn, director at the Max
Planck Institute for the History of Science in Berlin, responded to this publication with a
remarkable review in the daily newspaper Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung on 11/16/2007.
Moderator: Dr. Martin Warnke, Information Technology and Culture, Leuphana University of Lueneburg
