We live in the times of unprecedented global changes marked by complex relationship between technological innovation, social (in)justice and ecology. The underlying question of all debates on innovative methodologies among experts in different fields of science and arts is how to reconnect culture and nature, how to change conceptual approaches to the interior dimension of sustainability were the values and norms are made.We have made the list of recommended topics that is by no means exclusive.

Recommended topics include (but are not limited to) the following:

  • models of discovery: creativity and/in/versus innovation

  • experimental philosophy: its advances and discontents
