Gedanken zur Rolle der Wissenschaft in der Energiewende

Director Jürgen Renn on the challenges of our ever-changing reality:DLF_logo

"Now the horizons are closing again, and the narrowing is a challenge, not least for scientists stagnating in the mindset and disciplines of the first Copernican shift."

In this article by Deutschlandfunk, the author addresses how the current pandemic should re-shape our approach to climate change, and how it ultimately ties back to the exhibition Leonardo's Intellectual Cosmos, our understanding of the Anthropocene and the current conception of an institute for geoanthropology by the Max Planck Society spearheaded by Jürgen Renn.

The exhibition Leonardo's Intellectual Cosmos, organized by the Max Planck Institute for the History of Science (MPIWG) in cooperation with Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin, takes place from May 11 to July 17, 2021.
