Science Its Power, Responsibility and the Limits of Human Knowing

Wednesday, 13 July 2016: 10:45-12:15
Location: Hörsaal 15 (Juridicum)
RC51 Sociocybernetics (host committee)

Language: English

Sociocybernetics stresses the necessity to implement a profound scientific paradigm shift in the traditional thinking of Western science. To unsnarl the consciousness puzzle a kind of philosophical reasoning is required that stresses the fact that human feeling has to be integrated in science. A science lacking the notion of human feeling simply cannot explain the usefulness and stunning success of its own well-known experimental methodology and how it relates to knowledge production.
This insight will also in one step place all sciences, pace Ernst Mach, under the same umbrella. Thus replacing the present dominance of physics, raising anew the question of power and responsibility. The feeling of provocation will provide the clue to build the strands back to Brentano, Kant’s phenomenology and Humean habits.
