DESCRIPTION OF THE INTERDISCIPLINARY DISCUSSION SITE

 The interdisciplinary discussion site started in 2005 with a general question to what extent the universe is directed by an absolute hazard, as claimed by CHARPAK, Nobel Price in 1992, HAWKING, OMNES KRÖGER and others. Discussion includes the relation between the experimentally observed hazards and causality (SCHÜTTE, GUICHON ) as well as determinism (BRICMONT) at the level of elementary particles and their significance for the universe. (site map, navigation). The general methods of quantum physics depending on the uncertainty principle of HEISENBERG are also considered. Later on other questions at the interface between physics, biology and philosophy are envisaged. The foundation members are: Franz JANSEN, Immunology, Montpellier, France and Dieter SCHÜTTE, Theoretical Physics, Bonn, Germany. 

The INTER-5-CIRCLE responsible for  the“ Interdisciplinary Discussion”  site was created in 2005 to focalize on questions of general interest with philosophical implications. The themes may cover general statements in: Quantum Physics, Astrophysics, Genetics, Sociology, Psychology, Philosophy or others. Publications in books or journals from authors specialized in these domains are taken as starting points and briefly summarized with respect to the proposed question. Scientists of a variety of disciplines are invited to contribute very shortly their personnel opinion to the announced questions? Therefore contradictory opinions will be exposed in this site with the agreement of the authors and without any restriction from the organizing board. Discussion partners of the INTER-5-CIRCLE are expected to be scientists with 5 - Inter properties:  Inter-disciplinary, Inter-national, Inter-racial, Inter-religious and Inter-net-linked.

 

The site is organized around a first page on "all themes" announcing all proposed questions, followed by secondary pages (accessible by a click on each theme), which give an overview on the different contributors, their opinion to the question and their professional working field. Finally tertiary pages allow (by clicking on the authors at the left border) a confrontation of short summaries from challenging publications with contributions of invited discussion partner ( INTERNET access to their professional publications included). Selected E-mails will be included as well as unselected short communications from the public.

It is the aim of this discussion site that readers without special knowledge in the implied disciplines, should nevertheless be able, to make their own opinion out of the contrasting contributions to the discussion themes.
