Lecture
Limits of Knowing

The Creative Idiot, the Wise Fool and the Grey-haired Baby

Lecture by Jens Eisert and conversation with Rainer Kohlberger, moderated by Chris Salter

  • Free admission

  • In English

Focussing on Kohlberger and Eisert’s fascination with quantum mechanics – perhaps the most counter-intuitive of all fields of knowledge – they discuss the creative affinities between physics and art in challenging common-sense views of reality, while dedicating special attention to the relation between chaos and creativity. In extension, they discuss the interaction between disciplines, not as an interface, but following Michel Serres, as “an expedition filled with random discoveries”.
