The research unit 'Foundations of Art and Science' investigates the connection between arts and sciences through philosophical, cultural-sociological, historical and economic analysis. The main topics of the Unit include: 1. Disemborderment of art and science: an investigation of the possibilities of existence for a depiction of arts and sciences as similar intellectual and creative activities; 2. The relation between image and reality: a study of the 'modes' which sciences and arts use to represent reality; 3. Historical world-views: the construction of conceptual frameworks of the historical relationship between sciences and arts; 4. Art and economics: the connection between economics and aesthetics, and between the economy and the art world.
