In appreciation of his work on the foundations of technology and innovation, wi1 member Albrecht Fritzsche was recently invited by the institute of philosophy at Tunghai University, Taiwan, to discuss further opportunities to systematize this line of research and merge efforts across disciplinary boundaries. Meetings with various faculty members were used to explore intersections with German Idealism and Dialectics, the Theory of Action, Buddhism and other fields of study at the institute. Tunghai University is the second oldest university in Taiwan with a comprehensive teaching record in the natural sciences, engineering and humanities as well as many high-level research centres.
