Which came first: the chicken or the egg? This talk by IGD's Stefano Gualeni will settle this issue once and for all.

This upcoming public talk, part of the Cafe' Scientifique talk series is titled: ‘Chicken and Egg’ philosophical play with thought experiments.

Thought experiments are made of imaginary situations where questions are posed around contradictions in how we think about the world. Most thought experiments are based on our values and existence are meant to remain riddles. Those that challenge our logic tend to be solved throughout the course of history. Thanks to the philosophy of language, today we are able to unravel the 'chicken and egg' dispute.

Date: Wednesday 1st March
Time: At 7.30pm (doors open at 7.00pm)
Venue: Cinema Room, Spazju kreattiv St James Cavalier
