"According to Dominique Lecourt, a veritable counter-revolution in French thought has seen the period of the "master-thinkers" of the 1960s succeeded by an era of generalized mediocrity. Where Althusser or Lacan, Foucault or Derrida once held centre stage, today restorationist currents prevail in the academy and on television sets. Fuelled by a complaisant media, the contemporary French ideology seeks neither to interpret nor to change the world, but is instead content to legitimate a globally hegemonic neo-liberalism." "The story Lecourt tells posits two key turning points in the career of the French intelligentsia. The first is the anti-Marxist turn of the mid-1970s, championed by the New Philosophers and prompted by disappointment in an imaginary Maoism as an alternative of official Communism. The second is the revulsion at the theoretical anti-humanism of the alleged pensee '68, sponsored by Luc Ferry and Alain Renaut's 1985 polemic of that title. Concerned to identify the significant differences masked by the construction of an anti-humanist straw man, Lecourt nevertheless defends the common critical project to which Althusser, Foucault and others were committed before and after 1968. Contrasting it with the real philosophical impostures and political abdications of the present, he calls for a resumption of traditions that made Paris the post-war intellectual capital of Europe."--Jacket

Contre la peur : de la science à l'éthique, une aventure infinie by Dominique Lecourt( Book )

16 editions published between 1990 and 2011 in French and held by 179 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ces pages, écrites au lendemain de la chute du mur de Berlin, se voulaient une réflexion sur la fin d'une interprétation scientiste de l'idéal progressiste, très présent dans les pays du "socialisme réel". Le concept de postmodernité donnait lieu à des batailles d'interprétation. Depuis cette date, la peur de l'incertain se développe, face aux nouveaux risques, le principe de précaution gagne du terrain. Contre le catastrophisme ambiant, l'auteur plaide pour que l'humanité se montre à la hauteur de ce qui lui arrive et que chaque individu assume sa vie pour lui-même et pour les autres

Humain, posthumain : la technique et la vie by Dominique Lecourt( Book )

16 editions published between 2003 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 173 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Depuis sa publication en 2003, l'ouvrage de Dominique Lecourt n'a rien perdu de son actualité. Le discours des bio-catastrophistes domine encore davantage le monde. Celui du techno-prophètes garde son pouvoir de séduction. Mais l'éthique ne saurait se borner à formuler des interdictions. Il est nécessaire d'investir dans la recherche et l'innovation. Sciences humaines et sciences dures coopéreront alors pour le plus grand bien de la nature et de la société."--Back cover

La question de l'animalité de l'homme, qui hante les sciences humaines et sociales depuis trente ans, est ici abordée dans une problématique qui récuse la sociologie, le matérialisme biologique, mais aussi le dualisme âme-corps cher à bien des philosophes. Boris Cyrulnik expose ses vues originales sur la psychologie de l'enfant, qui permettent de reformuler complètement le rapport entre l'inné et l'acquis, et donne une contribution nouvelle sur la question de l'inceste, débattue tant en anthropologie que dans les écoles psychanalytiques
