Images, imaginaries and imagination present powerful mediating components in processes of science communication. But they fulfill just as well epistemic and poietic functions whilst triggering inventions, innovations and initiatives along with their acceptance or rejection. Hence, this volume focuses on raising our understanding of their generative capacities. How do they inspire interacting discourses, practices and developments in science, technology and society?
Immagini, immaginari e fantasia rappresentano potenti componenti di mediazione nei processi di comunicazione della scienza. Ma svolgono anche funzioni epistemiche e poietiche, innescando invenzioni, innovazioni e iniziative, nonché la loro accettazione o il loro rifiuto. Questo volume si concentra quindi sulla comprensione delle loro capacità generative. In che modo ispirano discorsi, pratiche e sviluppi interagenti nella scienza, nella tecnologia e nella società?
