Thinking about knowledge in the early modern period

History of Knowledge investigates how science and technology develop within broad cultural contexts. The roots of our modern knowledge society are in the early modern period. The scientific and industrial revolutions, and the Enlightenment lay the foundations of modern science and technology and our conceptions of knowledge. When tracing these developments to their roots, one enters fascinating worlds of ingenious inquirers and often peculiar ideas. Fokko Jan Dijksterhuis will give his inaugural lecture on the acceptance of his office as extraordinary professor of Early Modern History of Ideas, in particular History of Knowledge.
