With Spanish tapas and Paella by Marco Segurado from “You Don’t Tell it to Anyone”.
The topic of this fourth night is “the miracle/wonder“.
Miracles mark the boundaries of Western rationality, which is mostly shaped by Christianity and ancient philosophy of nature. The miraculous labels the extraordinary, as well as mysterious healings, incredible natural occurrences and the wondrous unknown, unexpected technical innovations, artistic ideas and even sheer coincidences. A miracle is a window onto the world from which art, science and technology have emerged – a window that draws attention to a deficiency or a gap that, as much as we might like to, we cannot close. With this evening, we would like to put the occidental world-view and its fragile interpretational skills up for discussion and compare our perspective with alternative points of view found in other cultures.
