Alexander von Humboldt Fellowship for Giora Hon

Giora Hon

c:o/re short term fellow Prof. Dr. Giora Hon has been awarded with an Alexander von Humboldt Fellowship (Renewed Research Stay) for the period from 1 January to 31 March 2024, which gives him the opportunity to continue working on his research while staying in the research environment of c:o/re in Aachen.

During the fellowship, Giora Hon will work on his project entitled “A History of the Concept of Model”: How were models, designed as didactic devices, transformed into tools of research? A philosophical analysis of this fundamental change in the late nineteenth century will be the focus of this research stay. 

We congratulate Giora on the fellowship and look forward to further cooperation, for example the organization of a workshop on concept formation in May 2024. Stay tuned!
