Reconstruction 15.2 – Immersion and Intervention: Convergences in Art and Science Research | Medical Gothic: Literature, Culture & Criticism

Traditionally, at least in practice, “humanists” have viewed nature and culture as separate spheres, while scientists have tended to view nature as a global milieu in which humans are immersed. The extent to which science has retained its humanism and to which philosophy has made a “post-human” turn presents new opportunities for rethinking the history of artistic and scientific practices as well as their potential futures. It is no accident that Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari have written about both “minor science” (characterized by hydraulic turbulence) and “minor literature” (characterized by Lucretian, tactical “swerves”), both of which produce previously unforeseen molecular objects, events, and molar recuperations.
