Exploration, Science and Culture

Eduardo Martínez de Pisón

In this lecture, Eduardo Martínez de Pisón highlights the cultural side to exploration, without forgetting the scientific perspective that was also present in the other sessions of this series. He asserts that exploration transcends geography and embraces all areas of culture. As a consequence, this lecture touches on everything from Dürer’s self-portrait –the first painting to reflect the image of a real mountain– to Friedrich and Magritte, while in regard to the written word, it goes from Genesis to the poetry of Hölderlin.
