With Piet Hut (IAS, Princeton) and Yuko Ishihara (Center for Subjectivity Research, Copenhagen)
We are all grounded somewhere: in our homes, communities, language, culture, etc. A scientist sees the world differently from an artist because the scientist is grounded in specific meaningful contexts that are rather different from that of the artist. Each of us has multiple ways in which we take a stand, grounding ourselves within various frameworks—which in turn define who we are: how others see us, and how we see ourselves. Astrophysicist Piet Hut (IAS, Princeton) and philosopher Yuko Ishihara (Center for Subjectivity Research, Copenhagen) led an open-ended discussion about us & our grounds.
