Multiverse | Philosophers | Research

09 january 2023

Can you imagine two thousand philosophers from all over the world together at one event? They are presenting their research and sharing their opinions about each other’s work. And  there is only one speaker from Russia among them. The speaker is SAS professor Giacomo Andreoletti. And the event is a conference of the professional association of philosophers APA.

The annual Eastern Division Meeting of the American Philosophical Association (APA) took place in Montreal, Canada, from the 4th to the 7th of January. Giacomo Andreoletti gave a talk on the topic “Branching time and the specter of fatalism” in the section of the Society for the Philosophy of Time.

This topic should be familiar to you thanks to multiverse and time travel science fiction. However, not everyone knows the concepts they are based on. The idea of a plurality of worlds gives rise to scientific, philosophical and theological questions. You can learn more about Giacomo’s research from his scientific publications:
