  1. The Renaissance of Francis Bacon: On Bacon’s Account of Recent Nano-Technoscience.Jan Cornelius Schmidt - 2011 - NanoEthics 5 (1):29-41.
    The program of intervening, manipulating, constructing and creating is central to natural and engineering sciences. A renewed wave of interest in this program has emerged within the recent practices and discourse of nano-technoscience. However, it is striking that, framed from the perspective of well-established epistemologies, the constructed technoscientific objects and engineered things remain invisible. Their ontological and epistemological status is unclear. The purpose of the present paper is to support present-day approaches to techno-objects ( ontology ) insofar as they make (...)

  • Toward an Epistemology of Nano-Technosciences.Jan Schmidt - 2011 - Poiesis and Praxis 8 (2-3):103-124.
    This paper aims to contribute to the attempts to clarify and classify the vague notion of “technosciences” from a historical perspective. A key question that is raised is as follows: Does Francis Bacon, one of the founding fathers of the modern age, provide a hitherto largely undiscovered programmatic position, which might facilitate a more profound understanding of technosciences ? The paper argues that nearly everything we need today for an ontologically well-informed epistemology of technoscience can be found in the works (...)
