MISSION STATEMENT

“For cognition is neither passive contemplation nor acquisition of the only possible insight into something given. It is an active, live interrelationship, a reshaping and being reshaped, in short, an act of creation.”

Ludwik Fleck, “On the crisis of 'reality'” [1929]

 

The Ludwik Fleck Center is dedicated to performing research into the work of Ludwik Fleck and providing a site for encounters with his life and thought. The Center supports and documents to the best of its abilities studies of the significance of Fleck’s work for the history of science. This includes promotion of exchange and networking among research projects already underway or in their initial phase, in the person of participating scholars and interested persons.
