the first European festival on creativity

2015 Program

Event #37

Stefano Moriggi, Marco Pesatori

The starry sky above us

The event has been moved from Chiostro di San Francesco to Canale Lunense

 

It isn’t every day that an astrologer and a science philosopher decide to exchange ideas. Each observes the world through different eyes, and questions it with his own tools. Yet when they meet, beneath the vault of the sky, they find the questions they are both tackling are the great mysteries that have forever stirred the human spirit. Starting from Kant’s famous four questions: what can I know? What should I do? What may I hope? What is man? In a conference-performance touching upon Marsilio Ficino and John Cage, and ranging from Heraclitus to Tzara, the most irreverent of astrologers will reveal in which way his job is actually to “make wrong predictions”, while the inflexible epistemologist suggests that, without the stars, morals are little more than a sermon.
