Thinking Outside the Box: Conceptual Breakthroughs on the Threshold of the Modern World

At this vibrant and defining period in history, namely, on the threshold of the modern world, in the 16th and 17th centuries, we encounter unprecedented scientific, astronomical, religious, artistic and literary change.  We will view images that capture some of the remarkable cognitive and conceptual breakthroughs in thinking that accompanied these unprecedented events and that pointed their audiences---through reconfigurations of space and innovations in linear perspective---toward the modern world and  current research in the neurosciences.
