From 29 May till 3 June 1995 scientists from many different disciplines gath-
ered in Brussels at the international conference 'Einstein meets Magritte'. The
meeting between Einstein and Magritte represented an experiment, to hope to
progress beyond the many programmatical appeals that have been formulated
in recent decades in order to cut across disciplinary boundaries. The experiment
consisted of bringing together scholars and creative performers who have already
- in their own distinctive ways - taken a path that leads to interdisciplinarity-
transdisciplinarity - albeit in different directions. In bringing them together, we
invited them to set up a dialogue between different attitudes, and integrate the
more relevant insights into a new perspective on global change. In this respect,
a number of our invited speakers had agreed to act as initiators in attracting
attention to various problems, around which workshops had been set up.
