Physics and Philosophy of the Future: the Flow of Time between Physics and Metaphysics

Description

Aim of the meeting:

The concept of time has always been a topic of great interest and exploration in both physics and philosophy: time scans our experience of the world and is the foundation of our consciousness. We propose an afternoon to discuss the flow of time between physics and metaphysics with researchers active in both fields. In particular, from the philosophical viewpoint, we shall debate the nature of the future as well as possible time travels. Physics wise, it will be investigated the nature of time in relativity and how the quantum theory of gravity and space-time can help the understanding of the fundamental structure of the universe.
