Sascha Freyberg

Visiting Predoctoral Fellow (Nov 2017-Dec 2022)

Doctoral candidate at Ruprecht-Karls University Heidelberg Research Fellow at Ca' Foscari Università Venezia in the ERC-project Early Modern Cosmology Editorial Manager for Verum Factum: Studies and Sources on Political Epistemology (EOA book series).

After studying cultural sciences in Hagen and philosophy in Berlin, Sascha is currently finishing up a PhD thesis on Edgar Wind and the configurational logic of cultural research. He has organized workshops on Ernst Cassirer and Soviet Human Sciences at the Institute. His research addresses the “split of rationality” and in this context he prepared the manuscript for the publication project “Rethinking the Political Epistemology of the Enlightenment: Dialogues with Ernst Cassirer,” editing the papers of Yehuda Elkana and John Michael Krois. Currently, he is pursuing collaborations on a critical theory of science, political epistemology, and open access initiatives to bring wider attention to the “communism of science” (Merton).
