Scientific knowledge is gained through active intervention in Nature; in order to become homo sapiens, humans must at the same time be homo faber. Following the philosophical work of Jürgen Mittelstrass, the papers presented in this volume justify this thesis and differentiate it in both its historical and its systematic dimension (including its practical philosophical implications).
