"... there are no facts"?
Nietzsche and the sciences in the post-truth era with Helmut Heit from the Klassik Stiftung Weimar.
The significance of the sciences for modern civilization has once again been made very clear, especially against the background of the Covid pandemic. At the same time, science's claim to superior knowledge is always fundamentally in question - and not just since people started talking about 'post-truth' and 'alternative facts'. The lecture tries to show that, starting from Friedrich Nietzsche, one can take an enlightening look at these possibilities, their limits and challenges of a scientific culture.
