Abstract

This paper aims to propose a ‘cartographic’ approach to the representation of knowledge in its present configurations, with the aim to visually represent not so much a disciplinary partitioning, as the interconnection of the its composing entities, the paths that develop, the thematic and transdisciplinary domains that emerge. A cartography of knowledge spaces that takes advantage of the experience developed by maps in the representation of complex and open spaces, historically able to hold heterogenous, natural and social elements together in the same picture. The first section of the paper is devoted to the rhetoric of cartography in its traditional meaning. In the second section of the paper a proposal for a ‘knowledge atlas’ is discussed.
