This course introduces a number of significant themes in the natural sciences. Themes that are often recognized by name, but that require further study to be really understood. Themes that are relevant in other academic fields and also in everyday life: emergence & reduction; evolution; uncertainty; chaos & fractals; recursion & self-reference.
By means of popular scientific texts, scientific articles, and alternative media like film and literature this course attempts to explain the essence of the mentioned themes. This course is finalized with a series of columns and a more substantial end product, like an essay or something else.
