The question of how humans see and represent themselves has been approached via the analogy to artifact and machine, sometimes stressing similarities, sometimes differences. This course discusses pivotal texts from various times in history with the goal to analyze how the

(perceived) relationship between man and machine was, and still is, changing.

Competencies / intended learning achievements

  • read and interpret scientific English literature in this field
  • summarize and compare research papers and highlight relevant information from these papers
  • debate scientific issues with peers or lecturers and thereby refer to complex concepts
