Artificial life: new worlds and new views through scientific thought

Artificial life and time are the next topics of a series of talks about the snares of reason

Given that hyper-rationality and the development of knowledge in modern societies do not bring the world a greater degree of good sense, but, on the contrary, appear to make it more absurd, rationality needs to be examined.

This cycle, coordinated by Francis García and Pol Capdevila, offers a series of talks and discussions for understanding whether our culture is in crisis or whether crises are essential to our culture.
