“Join us to create more diversity and plurality in knowledge production.”

Gisela Febel
driver

“Contradictions are an important driver of scientific practice and knowledge.”

Norman Sieroka
articulate

“Contradictions need to be articulated in order to exist.”

Martin Nonhoff
ideal of a contradiction-free world

“Science has long been animated by the ideal of a contradiction-free world in which logical orders could merge with society, politics, culture and language. In the GRC Contradiction Studies we are working on ways of describing the multiplicity and complexity, the danger and beauty of our worlds that clearly go beyond concepts of freedom from contradiction.”

Michi Knecht
city

“The city is a laboratory not only of modernity, but also of contradiction.”
