A Multinarrative Approach to Digital Culture

Raimundus Lullus (Ramón Llull)

God and man, nature, art and science – The totality of knowledge, represented by a tree

How to combine elements of thinking, elements of language?

Mission statement: ‘Digital transformation’ is the expression that has been formulated to describe our age, however, we are starting to see that it is the human being that should be in the forefront of current development trends; no successful industrial revolution will be accomplished without bearing in mind basic human values, such as equality and responsibility.

The goal of this iASK Workshop Series is to shed some light on the frontiers of human and machine knowledge, and to initiate an international discourse on the intersections of humanity –and the Humanities– in the digitally driven revolution.
