- Knowledge Ensouled: Premodern Experience of the Natural World
Exploring experience in the sciences concerned with plant, animal, and human life, Katja Krause's new Research Group “Experience in the Premodern Sciences of Soul and Body” reconsiders the belief that experience played a minimal role in premodern natural knowledge making. Its objective is to reveal the ideals and practices associated with premodern experience, and the material artifacts, cultural conditions, and circulation processes informing and transforming them.
