The Complex Committee on the History of Science and Technology organised a conference on 22 September 2017 on the Geological Periods and the Time of Humankind. Two members of our project team discussed their findings at the conference. Dezső Gurka presented a paper on Henrik Steffens’s attempt at the Schellingian interpretation of the geological periods, whereas Piroska Balogh discussed the paleoanthropological aspects of Ágost Greguss’s aesthetics.
