research group aims at opening new fields of interaction between sciences, arts
and humanities. The group has its origins in 1994 when it established a
Transdisciplinary network of researchers focusing on the nature of evolutionary
processes. The identity of the group is founded on both knowledge and human
experience as on the suggestion of the concept of plasticity. The latter is
considered to be the basic principle underlying the organization of any life
form, art or idea."
What does mean plasticity ? Which is the role of the Plasticians ?
We present the concept of plasticity as a new epistemological paradigm. An opened, transverse attitude opposing to the fragmentation of reality.
By our actions we foster:
- the rise of discoveries at the frontiers of their own discipline.
- any research work of transdisciplinary nature.
- the achievement of projects in science and epistemology.
- the questioning of the relationship between arts and science.
- considerations concerning the future of humanity, the foundations of thought or the various modes of apprehension of knowledge.
- creativity in all forms.
Our three key-words: Plasticity, Art & Science, Transdisciplinarity.
