Peter König und Oliver Schlaudt (Hrsg.): Kosmos: Vom Umgang mit der Welt zwischen Ausdruck und Ordnung

What are the prerequisites of cosmological thinking? How do cosmologies inscribe themselves in the intellectual, theoretical, political, ethical and practical contexts of their time? What perspectives do they open up for the future? The authors answer these questions in several case studies ranging from prehistory to present-day Earth system science.
