Description:
(...) In what form do fictional elements occur in the contemporary sciences? The aim science set for itself was to gain knowledge of the world, but these examinations resulted in its continuous transformation. Is it possible that this hierarchy has been reversed? Will the transformation process become the event horizon of recognition? And will research, which is falling out of this trend, be sucked up by oblivion as if by a black hole? Where is the still undoubtedly existing difference between science and pseudo-science, if the imaginable has become a decisive basis of comparison for both? What can the future role of art be in the relational system between science and fiction? (Miklós Peternák, József Mélyi)
