Clinamen

Christopher Butterfield

Clinamen has been performed in Vancouver…

“Clinamen. Lucretius’ Latin for the Greek ‘klesis’, “a bending”. Empedocles (490-430 B.C.) uses the term to designate the spontaneous deviation that allows atoms falling in otherwise parallel lines through the void to encounter one another and thus create matter; Lucretius extended the meaning of the word to include free choice.”
