Ignazio Licata: The Latest Magna Graecia’s Natural Philosopher

Massimo Pregnolato, Ruggero Rapparini


He states he is not so much interested in discovering “how God made the World” as in how our theories describe it and are interconnected, in search for a unitary vision between mind and matter. Endowed with a physical intuition faster than any calculation, he can shift with self-assurance from Cosmology to Information Theory, from Physics at Planck scale and non-locality Geometry to Neurocomputing. His models are E. Majorana, L. Landau, W. Heisenberg, R. Feynman e F. Dyson, but his Damascus road has been D. Bohm vision. As for him “God always quantizes, but does not play dice, at all”. Physics – he says - is a way of life. With a passionate love for culture and music, Ignazio Licata is one of the last natural philosopher, but his language is that of non-commutative geometries, path integrals and renormalization group.
