"We lack a great philosophy of mixtures and crossings."

The philosopher offers the first public glimpse into his wandering mind. In the process, he reveals how he creates his texts that flow back and forth between literature, essay and philosophy. Using sounds from nature, Michel Serres develops the relation between science and music and offers a deeper insight into his wide-ranging work and thought.


The event is curated by Susanne Stemmler and Cordula Hamschmidt (Haus der Kulturen der Welt), the concept was developed by Elisa Barth, Peter Gente, Tom Lamberty und Sophie Springer (Merve Verlag).
