Sabrina Speich & Roberto Casati "The Invisible Ocean : from physics to philosophy"


Date : 12 septembre 2022, de 17h30 à 19h30

Lieu : Salle Dussane, 45 rue d’Ulm 75005 Paris (entrée libre dans la limite des places disponibles) et diffusion en direct sur la chaîne YouTube de l’ENS-PSL


As part of the scientific series of PSL for the beginning of the academic year, this conference is given by Sabrina Speich, an oceanologist and professor (ENS - PSL) and Roberto Casati, director of the Jean Nicod Institute (ENS - PSL).

Although the ocean covers two thirds of the planet’s surface, and makes its a place where life can exist, it remains a space that is difficult to apprehend and whose study is complex. Its specificities assume the form of invisibility in relation to the collective consciousness and decision-making. In this two-part presentation, we will present our knowledge of the ocean, the means and methods used by research, and we will explore new avenues opened up by citizen and participative science.
