Item description for Theatrum Scientiarum: Band 2: Instrumente in Kunst und Wissenschaft Zur Architektonik kultureller Grenzen im 17. Jahrhundert by Helmar Schramm...

This volume presents a collection of original papers at the intersection of philosophy, the history of science, cultural and theatrical studies. Based on a series of case studies on the 17th century, it contributes to an understanding of the role played by instruments at the interface of science and art. The papers pursue the hypothesis that the development and construction of instruments make a substantive contribution to the opening up of new fields of knowledge, to the development of new cultural practices, but also to the delineation of particular genres, methods and disciplines. This perspective leads the authors of the papers to reflect anew on what it is that actually defines an instrument and to develop a series of basic questions to determine what an instrument is -- which actions does the instrument incorporate? -- which actions does the instrument make possible? -- when do the objects of examination themselves become instruments? -- what skills are requir! ed to use an instrument, which skills does it produce? With its combination of new theoretical models and historical case studies, its detailed demonstration of the mutual influence of art and science with the instrument as the point of intersection, this volume enters new territory. It is of great value for all those interested in the history of our perception of instruments. Besides the editors, the authors of the papers are: Jrg Jochen Berns, Olaf Breidbach, Georges Didi-Huberman, Peter Galison, Sybille Krmer, Dieter Mersch, Hans-Jrg Rheinberger, Wilhelm Schmidt-Biggemann, and Otto Sibum.
