Ghent University

The multiplicity of the microhistories which historians of science produced over the past decades showed that any form of knowledge should be considered a locally constitued entity. But how is science able to trasncend its local context? How does knowledge circulate? Our aim is to bring forward the processes by which scientific knowledge can reach its transcultural position.
