Particle and Astroparticle Physics Colloquium Hamburg

Quantum Universe Colloquium: Evidence Depends on Criticism of Evidence - On the Logic of Research

by Prof. em. Dr. Bazon Brock (Bergische Univ. Wuppertal/Denkerei mobil Berlin)

Auditorium (DESY Hamburg)


DESY Hamburg

Criticism of evidence became fundamental for scientists since they know, they can't trust their own natural ability of perception. They are aware of the fact, that humans have to pay for the tremendous adaptivity of their brain by deceptiveness. But the criticism of the naive experience of evidence must become evident on its part, so for example deflections of a pointer must be converted into sequences of numbers. Thus, abstraction is made from tempting symbols and images of desire: Abstraction became the main achievement of criticism of evidence as evidence.


This is a hybrid colloquium!
