Lecture: “Science, Art and Philosophy: One and All”
Prof. Dragan Novković
The paths of science, philosophy and art, often interpreted as special and independent, are actually intertwined and rooted in the same starting points.
The main themes of the lecture are: what was the relationship between these disciplines through history, and how in the present time they are rapidly converging toward each other, as well as what is the position of the science of sound and music in all these matters.
