Co-sponsored by the Richmond Public Library.

This café is in Russian. Translation not provided.

«Перспективы нашей цивилизации: гипотезы учёных –космистов и представления художников» - Др. Ирина Белецкая.

The ideas of cosmism are directed to find principles of global consistent patterns, and ultimately, the paradigm of the world. Without this knowledge, humanity is doomed to move towards the path of errors and large scale catastrophes. The cosmists paved a way for creation of the post-nonclassical science of the 21st century.

Guest: Dr. Irina Beletsky.
