Space and Knowledge: Elements of an Epistemic Theory of the Use of Diagrams

Elemente einer Theorie epistemischen Diagrammgebrauchs

This volume investigates the use of diagrams for the purposes of information. Using key scenes from Euclidian geometry and late medieval physics, it shows how diagrams interconnect space and rules, logic and epistemic surplus, double-meanings and precision, in such a way as to generate new insights. For the first time, the study integrates previously scattered notions into a systematic whole.
