The Thinking Machine Ramon Llull: and the ars combinatoria

The Thinking Machine Ramon Llull: and the ars combinatoria

CCCB, 14th July - 11th December 2016

This exhibition explores the impact of the philosopher Ramon Llull (1232-1316) on the arts, literature, science and technology. This controversial man, admired and scorned by some of the most enlightened minds in European culture, has acquired a new importance in the current debate on the ways knowledge is shared with others. A topical figure today, he was also one of the leading lights in the intellectual circles of the late 13th century, in which Arab, Jewish and Christian philosophers and scientists alike participated.

“Every philosopher has the ability to be a good mechanic.” Ramon Llull
