Poetics of Science: Global Human

September 15 – 17, 2017

The third of three seminar weekends at the Chisholme Institute offering interactive presentations and workshops with speakers from diverse backgrounds, films and music nights.

Event Description

The compelling idea that inspired The Poetics of Science seminar weekends is inspiration itself. Inspiration is the creative, inexhaustible source through which the human reality can be directly known, be it through the science of the physical universe explored as an object, or through the embodied discovery of the hidden, interior realm of the heart.
