FRIDAY, 14 OCTOBER 2022, 9:15 A.M. – 9:45 A.M. From Goethe to the Ecological Crisis of the Present – Looking Back at 15 Years of the Kompetenzinitiative e.V. From Goethe to modern debates on progress – this sounds like quite a leap. Yet Goethe and writings of the modern age have repeatedly explored the issue of scientific technical progress. Modern literary awareness is familiar with discoveries or innovations of progress as well as with its ambiguities and risks. The presentation will address several of these aspects and also explain the key motivation for establishing the interdisciplinary work of the Kompetenzinitiative e.V. 15 years ago.
The Competence Initiative for the Protection of People, Environment and Democracy e. V. is an international, interdisciplinary and non-partisan association of scientists, doctors, lawyers and technicians. It is committed to modern health and environmental protection, especially in the field of mobile and communications radio.
