398 – Surroundings
Host: Nora Ludewig Shownoter: Jochen Spalding Gast: Etienne Benson
I wanted to make an episode on a topic from the history of science for a long time, finally it happened. This is an interview with Etienne Benson, professor of the history of science and technology, on the history of how people of the western world have been seeing, studying and explaining their environment. We talk mostly about his book, Surroundings, but also briefly about his current field of study.
