Wie wissenschaftliche Illustrationen beim Denken helfen

"Scientific illustrations have always helped people think. At the same time, they also reveal a Süddeutsche Zeitung Logolot about those who create them."

Nora Ederer publishes an article in Süddeutsche Zeitung, including an interview with Director emerita Lorraine Daston, on scientific illustrations and Max Planck's assertion that science should overcome the need for visual depiction. Lorraine Daston illustrates the need for visualization in science: "Even if you were standing on the tallest tower in the city or on top of a mountain, you couldn't see what looking at a world map could give you."
