SCIENTIFIC IMAGES: HISTORICAL AND PHILOSOPHICAL ASPECTS

This module explores how scientific visualisations, as part of scientific practices, embody the values and cultures in sciences. The first half of the module introduces the historical sources of scientific images and a few interesting cases of ‘scientists making images’. The second half of the module introduces the changes and contingencies of scientific images in terms of aesthetics, value and moral. This module encourages the students to broaden their scopes for relevant issues. Visual thinking is emphasised during the teaching. This module requires the students to insightfully analyse the images and perhaps create their own ones.
