About the Symposium

The Centre Leo Apostel for Interdisciplinary Studies (CLEA), Belgium, organizes the international symposium “Worlds of Entanglement,” to be held at the Free University of Brussels (VUB), on September 29–30, 2017.

The symposium is the natural continuation of past events organized by our centre, in particular the “Einstein meets Magritte” conference (1995), and the “Times of Entanglement” symposium (2010), which brought together some of the world’s most renowned thinkers, such as Zygmunt Bauman, Brian Arthur, Ilya Prigogine, Heinz von Foerster, William Calvin, Bas van Fraassen, Bob Edwards, Adolf Grunbaum, Rom Harré, Chris Langton, Constantin Piron, Francisco Varela, Linda Schele, Robert Pirsig, Barbara Hernstein-Smith, John Ziman, among others, to develop an interdisciplinary dialogue about fundamental issues of science and society.
