Der Ingenieur. Grammatik eines Hoffnungsträgers

  • 1. Université de Lausanne

Description

In the imaginary worlds of modernity, the figure of the engineer signifies hope for a different, better world. This utopian potential, recurrent in times of social crisis, is the starting point of Robert Leucht's essay. Drawing on examples from literature, film and media, Leucht reconstructs the iridescent career of the engineer as a bearer of hope in the 20th and 21st centuries — a career between "great man" and colourless functionary, between visionary inventor and mad scientist, between dynamic entrepreneur and Prometheus of the digital age.
