19.03.2015 at 1900

Join us as Ideographic is exploring historical specimens for the Second Synapse. Thisplo; investigation is going to focus on historical examples of evolutionary spikes. Places in cultures and time, where spikes in human evolution, both social and physical occurred. From Mesopotamia, to Ancient Athens, to Imperial China, to Medieval Baghdad, to Renaissance Florence, each peak in social evolution had its reasons, its cause and effects. We will be looking into potential causes of these spikes, economic, technological, social, philosophical….trying to determine why they occur, the shared conditions, the prerequisites of social evolution.

What are the conditions necessary for the dynamic evolution of a human system?

Speakers include lecturer, writer and artist Adrian Holme and semiotician Lucia Neva amongst others.
