Welcome!

The International Consortium for Research in the Humanities "Fate, Freedom and Prognostication" at the University Erlangen-Nuremberg is one of ten Käte Hamburger Kollegs in Germany only that foster pioneering research in the Humanities and win their special dynamic through the continuous presence of high ranking international scholars.

Prognostication and prediction are pervasive anthropological phenomena found in all cultures. The International Research Consortium aims to uncover the historical foundations of prognostication with their impact on our immediate present and our way of coping with the future. This approach will enable us to find new answers to the question of whether different views on fate and strategies of coping with destiny in Chinese modernity or the medieval European past constitute a characteristic difference from Western modernity.
