Saturday May 7, at 15.00h and 16.30h, Botanical Philosopher Norbert Peeters will give two mini-lectures about tree roots in the exhibition 'Caressing and Colliding - Sharing the Land' 

As a botanical philosopher, Norbert Peeters is concerned with the special world of plants. Following Darwin's view of the plant kingdom, he proposes a different way of looking at and describing plants. Plants are not passive creatures, but can perceive, experience and cooperate with each other just like humans and animals. In his books he introduces us to the life of plants and the philosophy of nature.

After the lectures there is the opportunity to have a conversation with Norbert and me. (lectures are in Dutch)
