Description

Without human. When the Earth returns to itself.
In dialogue with Stefano Mancuso, plant neurobiologist
Free admission
Sixth round of the cycle 'Encounters at the End of the World "
---
We are really able to imagine a world without humans? The idea that man's end coincides with the disappearance of life on Earth is the daughter of blindness now inherent to our species, an anthropocentric legacy that inhibits the identification of the actual operation of biodiversity.
Accompanied by the plant neurobiologist Stefano Mancuso, the first Italian invited for a TEDTalk in Oxford, we will try to understand how one could articulate a possible "was the plant".
An amazing journey that will visit, among other things, methods of plant communication, the ambitious project of a floating garden where plants can grow without soil, the curious strategy of chili adaptation. To deepen what they argued over a century ago, the British naturalist Charles Darwin: "Plants do not have a brain, why are their roots to determine intelligent behavior."

Stefano Mancuso is one of the world's foremost authorities in the field of plant neurobiology. Associate professor at the Faculty of Agriculture, University of Florence and the Accademia dei Georgofili Academy ordinary, directs the International Laboratory of Plant Neurobiology and is a founding member of the International Society for Plant Signaling & Behavior. He has several books and more than 250 scientific publications in international journals. In 2012, inviting him to Next, "The Republic" has entered his name in the list of 30 Italian destined to change our lives.

Encounters at the End of the World
A series of conferences and debates that develop the various themes of the inaugural exhibition The end of the world from a scientific perspective, philosophical, literary: from very recent theories of physics to prehistory, from science fiction to ecology and sustainability.
