BEYOND EITHER-OR: RECONCILING TRUTH, BEAUTY AND THE GOOD
Timen Timev Rosencroytz, M.D. and Irina Delin, M.A. have written many books as an intellectual team including The Revolt of Mediocrities which became a “bible” for a new generation in Bulgaria. Using their experiences as psychiatrist, philosophers, poets, musicians, playwrite and painter, they will demonstrate the General Movement of Form – the same pure structure that appears everywhere, hidden under different semantics – as chords in music, metaphor in poetry, contradiction in logic and superposition in quantum mechanics.
