Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin - Chair for the History of Science

Chair for the History of Science

The history of science focuses on the study of scientific knowledge. It undertakes to understand both the historical development and nature of scientific thinking as well as fundamental scientific concepts. To expand the history of science to the history of knowledge, researchers at our Chair investigate institutionalised forms of science, from the university and academies to scientific collections, as well as the technical skills of specialists and the everyday practices of laymen. Students will examine classical source material such as books, formulas and scientific specimen alongside non-traditional media, including document footnotes, laboratory tables and exhibition furniture. A recent shift toward the materiality and mediality of knowledge validates how essential a differentiated understanding of tangible objects is to scholarship. This shift also stands to show that the methods and purpose of an object's construction become discernable only after its historical evaluation.
