general introduction to the status of Epistemology in the history of philosophy
and in the present, the course will focus on a topic on the border between
physics and metaphysics, showing the fruitfulness of reciprocal relationships
in order to understand the structure of matter and time. In particular, the
question of temporal irreversibility as it emerges in the thermodynamics of the
Nobel prize for chemistry Ilya Prigogine will be addressed.
