International Research Conference “MetaMind‘2014”

In the centenary of World War I, the “MetaMind” project is dedicated to the handicap of chaos and the potential of order destruction, with special attention to the pre-programmed and pre-constructed nature of changes, destruction, and chaos in the space of European thought and being. The theoretical topicality of the theme is underpinned by the fact that our key value freedom with all its countless faces also resides in the destructiveness hidden in order and in the orderliness of chaos. The conference will analyse the various types of order and chaos, with the emphasis on the positive and creative features thereof, as well as features that cause stagnation, stereotypification and regress.
The interdisciplinary conference will be attended by internationally-acclaimed scientists and personalities from fourteen countries and two international research groups from France and the United States. In addition to theoretical discussions, the conference will also see a concert-lecture by three Latvian musicians, performance of Olivier Messiaen’s legendary “Quartet for the End of Time”, and an excerpt from Fyodor Dostoyevsky’s “Demons” staged by director Pēteris Krilovs.
