Aims and Scope
Life Configurations focuses on the analysis and reflection on the various forms in which human beings imagine, design, conjecture, and plan their “becoming”, that is to say their lives. Case studies written by an interdisciplinary circle of well-known academics explore how the capacity of designing life, the concept of free will, and the methods to calculate the future have been changed and adopted in different societies and in different ages.
