Genese und Konfiguration einer 'Wissenschaft vom Menschen' in der Frühen Neuzeit
The formation of anthropological knowledge in the Early Modern Age arose from the interaction of the disciplines of psychology, anatomy, physiology and natural law which set up a fundamental discourse on the nature of man from the Renaissance until the late Enlightenment. With this, the image of what people saw as human "nature" underwent a change. It was now based on insights into the links between man's biophysical and mental structures, which produced imagination and memory and empowered him to act morally and to produce "culture".
