FIAT LUX Conference

Sapienza - Università di Roma, Italy
3 June 2015 - 5 June 2015


In the common language light means knowledge: “I had a lightning”! In nature, light has a larger dimension, regrouping together three main functionalities: light means energy, light means information, light means also time rhythm. All of them are somehow different expressions of “knowledge”: getting information and communicate means in fact to know the surrounding, acquire energy from such knowledge and start associated actions. Physics and metaphysics have always analysed the surrounding nature from points of view which might be different but never opposite. FIAT LUX wants to be the place where scientists philosophers and theologians will get together to discuss on the same topics, trying to find similar languages and common understanding.
