SCFS Workshop: The Berlin Academy

Sydney Centre for the Foundations of Science Workshop

Workshop | “The Berlin Academy” 

The forthcoming workshop on The Berlin Academy will examine the socio-political context of the Academy, the philosophical methodology of the academicians and their ongoing debate over the origins of language. As such, this workshop will provide a useful entrée into the life and activities of the Berlin Academy, an institution that remains under-appreciated and under-studied in Anglophone scholarship.
