Parmenides Lecture Series

The Parmenides Center for the Study of Thinking is proud to present internationally renowned scientists to a public audience in our Parmenides Lecture Series with the title "Re-Thinking the Notion of Time and Self-Referentiality at the Interface of Philosophy, Physics and Mathematics". The Parmenides Lecture Series is a monthly event and is organized in close cooperation with Ludwig-Maximilians-University, Munich.

The goal is to foster the scientific network among researchers interested in the study of thinking and its emerging technology as well as to support and complement the work of the Parmenides research core team. -> More


Parmenides Workshops

Since its formation the Parmenides Foundation has been staging a series of international workshops with the aim to evoking and fostering dialogue and collaboration between researchers from a wide range of disciplines. The organising principle for these meeting has been the credo that a relaxed and pleasant atmosphere supports the openness and creativity needed for overcoming disciplinary boundaries and jointly breaking new ground. -> More


Parmenides Faculty Plenaries

A further major event on the agenda is the Parmenides Faculty Plenary held every other year. The goal is to create a forum for the members of the faculty and research team allowing interdisciplinary dialogue and exchanging current findings and methods in the field of research on thinking. The plenaries have so far proven to be intellectually inspiring symposia which brought together a large group of internationally renowned researchers with a diverse range of scientific backgrounds and interests. -> More
