Science and today's visons of the world

Science and today's visons of the world

March 11-13, 2005, Palazzo Franchetti
Istituto veneto di Scienze, Lettere ed Arti


"Scientists should think about their speciality within the framework of
modern culture to provide not only specific knowledge, but also some
general ideas" (Jacques Monod, 1970).

"At the dawn of the third millennium, scientists claim their right to
intervene in a field, which was once considered to be under the exclusive competence and jurisdiction of philosophers and churchmen: the field of values" (Rita Levi Montalcini, 2002).
