< !doctype html public "-//w3c//dtd html 4.0 transitional//en">

Die Figur Galileo Galilei ist für die europäische Wissenschaftsgeschichte, für die Kulturwissenschaften und für eine wissensgeschichtlich orientierte Literatur- und Kunstwissenschaft von großem Interesse. In diesem Band werden die Überschneidungen, Wechselwirkungen und Transferprozesse zwischen den wissenschaftlichen und kulturellen Dimensionen untersucht, die für Galileis Profilierung als frühneuzeitlicher Wissenschaftler ebenso wichtig sind wie für die im weiteren Sinn kulturelle Wahrnehmung seiner Entdeckungen und seiner Schriften – vor allem in Literatur und Kunst.

Der Band ist interdisziplinär konzipiert, um die fachlichen Einzelperspektiven von Literatur-, Kunst- und Kulturwissenschaftlern sowie Wissenschaftshistorikern zusammenzuführen. Analysiert werden Formen und Funktionen der Produktion, Konzeptualisierung und Repräsentation von Wissen sowie Aspekte der Diskussion und Diffusion von Galileis Wissensansprüchen im Kontext der Frühen Neuzeit. Mit dieser Fokussierung auf die im Schnittbereich verschiedener kultureller Formationen angesiedelte Etablierung Galileis liefert der Band somit einen Beitrag zur interdisziplinären Erforschung von Galileis Rolle und Rezeption in der europäischen Kultur- und Wissensgeschichte des 17. Jahrhunderts.
