In 2018 the second part of the project
'From To Can to To Know’ is published.
While the in 2017 published first collection by the presentation of Zilsel's work and of several interpretations of some aspects of that work, postulated the idea of a confluence in history of brainwork and manual labour, leading to the concept of science, the second part is focused on answering the question as to what this means.
Diederick Raven questions the by Zilsel himself suggested one-direction traffic option, containing the notion that manual labour development would have caused the origin of science.
Edgar Zilsel himself in his essay about the methods of humanism sharpens his idea that humanism impossibly might have caused the origin of science.
Maarten van den Oever outlines the casual impulse Zilsel gave to a double paradigm-switch, in fact one of modernity to postmodernity in the concept of science, and one from Geisteswissenschaft to historical epistemology. A multidimensional approach, conceptualized from the central notions of historical epistemology, is after that applied in a case study about Brunelleschi.
The problem of the relation between mathematics and physical reality, which Zilsels Wiener Kreiss barely could swallow, is historically explained by Mirjam Goedkoop in her thesis about Kant’s algorhytms and Frege’s conception of mathematics.
After this publication this project is completed. We foresee for the future indeed new publications about the idea of knowing and the way society provides in its need for knowledge and the way it sees this, but that will no longer be specifically connected to the theme that Zilsel brought to the fore.
