The IAS invites you to join us for the launch of the IAS Time Theme.
This online workshop marks the launch of the IAS Annual Theme on Time and examines how different scholarly disciplines conceptualise what time is about: while the natural sciences hold that time is objectively measurable, fundamental and independent of any social context, the humanities and social sciences are more interested in how time is socially and culturally constructed, as well as subjectively experienced. It is therefore essential to enter into a dialogue of what we understand by time, and how different philosophies of time affect social and cultural change.
Invited Fellows attending the event are:
Lawrence Eaves (Physics, Nottingham): Time and the Game of Life: The Cellular Automaton Interpretation of Quantum Mechanics
Meghan Sullivan (Philosophy, Notre Dame, IN): Diachronic rationality and rational planning
