To Be or Not to Be: Dialogues between Science and Philosophy

Dialogue between Antoni Hernández, Albert Solé and Susanna Tesconi, conducted by Marina Garcés

Debate

This panel session led by Marina Garcés will discuss the limits of the dialogue between science and philosophy and the extent to which the two disciplines can nourish each other.

The questions arising from the great discoveries of contemporary physics led eminent scientists like Stephen Hawking to state that philosophy has been left behind and that it is no longer useful for exploring the nature of the world. However, disciplines like theoretical physics and cosmology move into the realm of reflections and, as a result of their predictive, speculative character, fully enter the philosophical domain. In this panel session, three multidisciplinary researchers trained in science and the humanities will discuss the question of whether this dialogue between disciplines is possible, and how scientific and philosophical thinking might work together in this frontier zone of the human ability to know.
