Der Blick von nirgendwo und der Blick von überall: Objektivität in den Natur- und Geisteswissenschaften, Prof. Lorraine Daston (Max-Plank-Institute for the History of Sciences, Berlin, University of Chicago)

Objektivität zählt als eine – vielleicht die – epistemische Tugend der modernen Wissenschaften. In den Naturwissenschaften, gilt „the view from nowhere“ (der Blick von nirgendwo) als Objektivität: der unendliche Versuch, sich von seiner subjektiven Perspektive zu befreien. Aber gibt es vielleicht eine andere Version der Objektivität in den Geisteswissenschaften, den genauso unendlichen Versuch, sich in allen möglichen Perspektiven hineinzusetzen – den Blick von überall?

7:00 pm
