Histories of Mechanology


Project Summary:

This collaborative project examines the history of mechanology, the science of machines, as it developed over the course of the 20th century. Examining the work of Franz Reuleaux, Jacques Lafitte, Gilbert Simondon and John Hart, this project situates their philosophical inquiries into 'the machine' in relation to attempts to theorize media and mediation during the same period.
