This second volume continues to explore the profundity of the relations between the arts, sciences and technology communities. Philosophers, artists, theologians, physicists, musicologists and art theorists from different sides of the world seriously question the understanding of what we have up to now defined as art and what we have conceived as the media. They ask such disparate questions as: What does a 13th century Majorcan missionary have to do with logical machines? Were the astrolabes of the late Middle Ages really only devices to calculate the orbits of stars and planets and not also philosophical instruments? Could computers ever write love letters?
What do the creation of the lottery and arithmetically inspired musical compositions have in common?
