Concepts of Nature From Antiquity to the Present
Nov. 17, 2017, 14:00 - 19:30
Geb. 20.30, SR 0.019
Geb. 30.96, R 006
Geb. 50.41, R -133

Since Heraclitus' famous aphorism “Nature likes to veil herself”, the conception of nature has undergone profound changes: from the powerful and dynamic phusis of Greek philosophy to the vulnerable ecosystem, from playful and unpredictable lascivia to a mechanistic view of nature, from the Sublime to something ready to be dominated, from a primordeal force to the “second nature” in contemporary technology. The various conceptions of nature – such as Zeno's “artistic fi re”, “Mother Nature”, nature as living organism, nature as a hieroglyphic – problematize at the same time the porous boundaries between nature and culture, between nature and art, between the non-human and the human, between nature and technology. We will focus on seminal texts from Antiquity, the Middle Ages, Renaissance Neo-Platonism, the Enlightenment, Romanticism, 20th century ecology and eco-criticism.
