Internationaler Workshop – "Literary Theory and the Sciences"
The present relation between the humanities and the (natural) sciences is still relying on the dichotomy of the 'two cultures'. The Workshop explores potentialities of intervening into this dichotomy, from the point of view of literature and literary theory. It reconstructs particular historical responses of literature to science, recollects former interactions between literary theory and other knowledge formations, analyses epistemological presuppositions of scientific methods, and discusses recent cross-disciplinary work.
