  • To feed the interdisciplinary debate during ‘Crosstalks – The Atomium Session’ on May 14th, 2009, the speakers were asked to reflect upon some quotes and questions. This is one of them:

[…] “In investigating the roots of our current environmental dilemma and its connections to science, technology and the economy, we must re-examine the formation of a world view and a science which, by reconceptualizing reality as a machine rather than a living organism, sanctioned the domination of both nature and women. The contribution of such founding ‘fathers’ of modern science as Francis Bacon, William Harvey, René Descartes, Thomas Hobbes and Isaac Newton must be reevaluated.” 
Carolyn Merchant in The Death of Nature, 1980 crosstalks_reflection_bartaku.pdf
