During the years 2011-2015, an interdisciplinary group of researchers gathered regularly to delve into the in/determinism of nature and the problem of freedom.

The meetings intended to foster a thematic and terminological understanding among different disciplines (physics, biology, neuroscience, psychology, philosophy, theology), to discuss the new challenges opened up by science to contemporary culture. Presentations lasted about 60 minutes, followed by extensive time for discussion.
