Lecture and discussion with Peter Burke


The Polymath in an Age of Specialization: An endangered species?

In a cultural history of polymaths from the Renaissance to the present (from Leonardo da Vinci to Umberto Eco), Peter Burke examines the figure of the polymath and its survival in an age of specialization.

The talk is followed by a discussion with members of Die Junge Akademie, amongst them Fabian Krämer and Christoph Lundgreen, who critically examine the role of disciplinary borders in their work within their research group “Two Cultures of Sciences“.
