It is well-known that the fundamental problem in contemporary theoretical physics is the “pacific coexistence” between General Relativity and Quantum Mechanics. The scenarios of the explorable relationships between classical space-time and quantum land are various: the geometrodynamic one (by a proper extension of geometry), the stochastic fractal one (defining a middle land mediated by QFT-like hypotheses), the emergent one (from a physical viewpoint, by the collective behaviours of discrete entities, which mathematically means that the geometry derives from an algebraic structure of events). This anthology includes some of the most significant voices on the problem of the possible relations between the space-time dynamics and the quantum networks of events. (Imprint: Nova)
