In the press release of 22nd November 2011 it was announced that the promotion initiative IMC – India meets Classic will go ‘onair’ with a new radio format, internationally. “Thought Experiment(s)” will be aired from 22th Dec. on as English format in the sense of a medial continuation of the “project of Enlightenment” (details here).

The introductory premiere is given the topic “The Concept of Culture” and will be broadcasted uniquely as German format to introduce “Thought Experiment(s)” to the German audience, too. The 1st topic illuminates an outline of the relationship between culture and civilization, with reference to Immanuel Kant‘s sense orientation, cultural symbolic language and cultural regions.
