The reality around us, the things created by nature or by humans constitute a unity. During the first stage of operation of schools and universities, learning about the world consisted in studying and understanding that unity. With the passage of time, when scientific research developed, specialisation took over, knowledge became fragmented and the concept of unity was lost.
The goal of the Professor Jan Mozrzymas Interdisciplinary Seminar Studium Generale Universitatis Wratislaviensis is to build bridges between specialist field areas, to seek universal truths in order to allow us to better know and understand the world around us. The reality we live in has multiple facets. Lectures by outstanding scholars who present at Studium Generale seminars major recent achievements in various areas of knowledge are intended to show the faces of that reality and its unity.
Studium Generale has a long-standing tradition. It was established by Prof. Jan Mozrzymas (1937-2006) – a physicist and a University Rector in the years 1984-1987 and set up by resolution of the Senate of Wrocław University on 17 February 1993. On 5 March 2013, it celebrated the first twenty years of its existence. Seminar meetings are open to everyone. A lecture at which its author presents the most recent results of research in a given area against the earlier achievements, as well as their own thoughts and reflections, lasts for about 45 minutes. A discussion follows, preceded by an introduction.
