Images of Multiplicity: Spaces, Entanglement, Hybridity

Head back to programme.

Next session: 15:45-17:00 CET/9:45-11:00 EST

These different conceptualizations rest on different images of multiplicity. How do we arrive at such diverging conceptualizations, and what are the reasons behind them? This panel presents and discusses three different images of multiplicity.
