Festiwal Kopernika 2015: Geniusz

Kolejna edycja Festiwalu Kopernika odbędzie się w dniach 18-23 maja 2015 roku i poświęcona będzie fenomenowi genialności.

Geniusz to nie tylko wybitnie utalentowany artysta czy naukowiec, ale przede wszystkim tajemnicze zjawisko. Odbywające się w ramach festiwalu wykłady, debaty, spotkania, koncerty, wystawy i projekcje filmów zobrazować mają przejawy geniuszu w różnorodnych sferach rzeczywistości. Zaproszonych gości spytamy, jak opisać i wyjaśnić geniusz z perspektywy dziedzin, w których są ekspertami. Czy geniusz to kwestia inteligencji i zdolności, czy raczej osobowości i pracy? Jak działają wyobraźnia i intuicja? Jak powstają arcydzieła i dokonywane są przełomowe odkrycia?

Poprzednie Krakowskie Konferencje Metodologiczne

  • The Limits of Physics and Cosmology

    18th Kraków Methodological Conference
    The Limits of Physics and Cosmology

    There exist various kinds of limits which are inherent in cosmological research and physics. The most conspicuous one is connected with scientific method itself. It manifests itself during attempts to construct (or discover) suitable mathematical structures to model the physical world. However, this limit may be even more profound. Over the past 300 years we have become accustomed to the mathematical and empirical method which has proven to be uncannily successful in describing the enclosing universe. But is there a fundamental limit to the method itself which is intrinsic to the structure of the world?
  • The Normative Mind

    17th Kraków Methodological Conference
    The Normative Mind: Dimensions of Decision-Making

    There are various issues connected to the normative dimension of the mind. First, there exists the issue of rule-following: how is it possible that the human mind can apprehend rules and obey or disobey them? Second, there is the problem of normativity: when is a rule of behaviour normative? Third, there is the question pertaining to the basis of the normative mind: whether it is of a psychological or biological character and what are the differences between various kinds of normative reasoning (moral, legal, prudential). During the conference these and related issues shall be discussed by philosophers, psychologists and neuroscientists.
  • The Causal Universe

    16th Kraków Methodological Conference
    The Causal Universe

    Natural sciences provide extremely detailed description of how Universe functions by providing a set of scientific laws. These laws reflect regularities in nature and allow for the explanation and prediction of the observed phenomena. What seems to escape the power of contemporary science entirely, however, is the answer to the question of why the Universe is. Such an inquiry demands the use of a fundamental philosophical category of causality. The conference offered a unique opportunity to broaden our understanding of how to combine our vast knowledge of the laws governing the Universe in the quest for the ultimate explanation of its existence and specificity.
  • The Emotional Brain

    15th Kraków Methodological Conference
    The Emotional Brain: From the Humanities to Neuroscience and Back Again

    In the past, emotions and feelings belonged to the domain of the humanities. The 'affective revolution' of the 1990s changed all this. Neuroscientists have showed us that emotions and feelings can be investigated with empirical methods. Can both disciplines - the humanities and neuroscience - enrich and educate each other? Or maybe it is neuroscience that will dominate the reflection over the human emotional life? Or possibly it will stay as it is: two separate disciplines, two separate methods, with no real point of contact? The goal of The Emotional Brain: From the Humanities to Neuroscience and Back Again conference was to contribute to such a discussion.
  • Road to Reality

    14th Kraków Methodological Conference
    Road to Reality with Roger Penrose. Mathematics, Physics and Philosophy

    The first part of the conference, devoted to Penrose's mathematics and physics will was held in the Institute of Mathematics Polish Academy of Sciences in Warsaw and the second part, which took place in the Jagiellonian University in Cracow was devoted to Penrose's physics and philosophy and considered as The 14th Cracow Methodological Conference.
  • Evolution of the Universe and the Evolution of Life

    13th Kraków Methodological Conference
    The Evolution of the Universe and the Evolution of Life

    XIII Kraków Methodological Conference was devoted to theories of evolution: the biological and cosmological one. The opportunity to deal with the topic was the International Year of Darwin. A special guest of the conference was prof. Francisco J. Ayala.
