Such prestige is the outcome of a long historical process, during which scientific knowledge and method have been gradually promoted over other forms of knowledge and methods of inquiry. This symposium will bring together an interdisciplinary group of scholars to examine the diverse means of creating technical knowledge before and after the birth of modern science.
