The point is a geometrical abstraction, everyone would probably agree with that. This lecture by Ludger Hovestadt explores how聽 the abstract concept of a point releases different potentials to be realized in different technological paradigms. It gives an introduction to what it can allow for first in a pre-analytical, geometrical paradigm, then in an analytical, mechanical paradigm, and closes with an outlook and a first attempt to characterize the story of the point within the... Read More

Energy in the metalithic Era: lecture by Ludger Hovestadt and Vera B眉hlmann on the [power]book. Do we have enough energy for everyone? Of course not: we have more than enough. More than enough to cover all our current needs, more than enough to cater for expanding populations, growing economies and rising standards of living, across the globe. We have so much energy that, once we始ve sorted out the logistics of distributing it, we won始t know what to do with it all. And we won始t... Read More
