Don Ihde, Department of Philosophy, State University of New York, USA: Imaging Technologies: Plato Upside Down

Abstract: The seminar will develop a brief historical view of imaging with a particular concern for the production of knowledge. By taking examples from a narrow set of disciplines, I will develop a frame for interpretation of different styles of imaging. Then, turning to late 20th century to 21st century imaging, I hope to show that we are on the verge of a radically new level of imaging.

All developments will be illustrated with transparencies.

Suggested related background readings include, Peter Galison, Image and Logic, Don Ihde, Expanding Hermeneutics: Visualism in Science and Bodies in Technology, Jones and Galison, Picturing Science, Producing Art.
