丝绸之路上的科技与文明

  • 创建于 2016-02-03

丝绸之路是世界文明交流和思想与文化交互作用的象征。全球化时代,具有不同文化背景、来自不同地域、使用不同语言的人们之间的关系比历史上任何时期都紧密,丝绸之路的遗产尤显重要。科学与技术在当今社会发挥主要的作用,但是人文可以提供世界上不同文化之间的相互理解,有利于促进跨文化的交流与合作。打破学科壁垒,面向多样化的世界文化,非常必要。

20151210-11日,“丝绸之路上的科学与文化国际学术研讨会在北京召开。会议由联合国教科文组织(UNESCO)、国际哲学与人文科学理事会(CIPSH)、国际科技史与科技哲学联盟科学技术史分会(IUHPST/DHST)、世界人文大会(WCH)联合主办,中国科学院大学人文学院、中国科学技术史学会、中国社会科学院民族文学研究所承办。会议有两重目标:沟通科学与人文;沟通丝绸之路上国家和地区、乃至世界各国之间学者的交流,培育不同文化之间的相互理解。来自10多个国家的60多位学者参加了会议。会议主题包括:1)天文丝绸之路:欧亚天文学交流;2)文学、艺术、农业和地理; 3)科学与宗教; 4)认知之道:古文明中的科学推理; 5)考古学与人类学。具体内容见会议手册

Science and Civilization on the Silk Roads

The Silk Roads symbolize communication between civilizations and interaction of ideas and cultures across the world. The legacy of the Silk Roads is particularly relevant in our age of globalization, when people of many different cultures, regions and languages are in close contact more than ever before. While science and technology play a dominant role in our modern society, the humanities provide understanding of cultural diversities of our world that will help promote communication and collaboration across cultures. It is necessary to break off the rigid boundaries that often keep our disciplines apart from each other, and to open them to the plurality of world cultures.

The International Conference on Science and Civilization on the Silk Roads (ICSCSR) was hold in Beijing on 10-11 December 2015. The Conference was sponsored by United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), International Council for Philosophy and Human Sciences (CIPSH), International Union of History and Philosophy of Science and Technology/Division of History of Science and Technology (IUHPST/DHST), and World Humanities Conference (WHC); and was hosted bySchool of Humanities, University of Chinese Academy of Sciences (SH-UCAS), Chinese Society for the History of Science and Technology (CSHST), and Institute of Ethnic Literature (IEL), Chinese Academy of Social Sciences (CASS). The Conference has its twofold goals: to bring science and humanities together; and to bring people together in order to foster a mutual understanding of the diverse and often inter-related cultures. More than 60 distinguished scholars from around the world, including countries along the Silk Roads, participated in the Conference. The themes of the conference include: 1) The Astronomical “Silk Road”: Astronomy across Eurasia; 2) Literature, Art, Agriculture and Cartography; 3) Science and Religion; 4) Ways of Knowing: Scientific Reasoning in Ancient Civilizations; 5)Archaeology and Anthropology.
