The barren sacrifice : an essay on political violence by Paul Dumouchel( )

13 editions published between 2011 and 2015 in English and French and held by 1,335 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"According to political theory, the primary function of the modern state is to protect its citizens--both from each other and from external enemies. Yet it is the states that essentially commit major forms of violence, such as genocides, ethnic cleansings, and large-scale massacres, against their own citizens. In this book Paul Dumouchel argues that this paradoxical reversal of the state's primary function into violence against its own members is not a mere accident but an ever-present possibility that is inscribed in the structure of the modern state. Modern states need enemies to exist and to persist, not because they are essentially evil but because modern politics constitutes a violent means of protecting us against our own violence. If they cannot--if we cannot--find enemies outside the state, they will find them inside. However, this institution is today coming to an end, not in the sense that states are disappearing, but in the sense that they are increasingly failing to protect us from our own violence. That is why the violent sacrifices that they ask from us, in wars and even in times of peace, have now become barren"--Cover flap
Living with robots by Paul Dumouchel( )

12 editions published between 2016 and 2018 in English and held by 1,197 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Recounts a foundational shift in the field of robotics, from artificial intelligence to artificial empathy, and foreshadows an inflection point in human evolution. Today's robots engage with human beings in socially meaningful ways, as therapists, trainers, mediators, caregivers, and companions. Social robotics is grounded in artificial intelligence, but the field's most probing questions explore the nature of the very real human emotions that social robots are designed to emulate. Social roboticists conduct their inquiries out of necessity--every robot they design incorporates and tests a number of hypotheses about human relationships. Paul Dumouchel and Luisa Damiano show that as roboticists become adept at programming artificial empathy into their creations, they are abandoning the conventional conception of human emotions as discrete, private, internal experiences. Rather, they are reconceiving emotions as a continuum between two actors who coordinate their affective behavior in real time. Rethinking the role of sociability in emotion has also led the field of social robotics to interrogate a number of human ethical assumptions, and to formulate a crucial political insight: there are simply no universal human characteristics for social robots to emulate. What we have instead is a plurality of actors, human and nonhuman, in noninterchangeable relationships. As Living with Robots shows, for social robots to be effective, they must be attentive to human uniqueness and exercise a degree of social autonomy. More than mere automatons, they must become social actors, capable of modifying the rules that govern their interplay with humans.--
Against injustice : the new economics of Amartya Sen by Reiko Gotō( )

18 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 1,012 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Traditional theories of justice as formulated by political philosophers, jurists and economists have all tended to see injustice as simply a breach of justice, a breakdown of the normal order. Amartya Sen's work acts as a corrective to this tradition by arguing that we can recognise patent injustices, and come to a reasoned agreement about the need to remedy them, without reference to an explicit theory of justice. Against Injustice brings together distinguished academics from a variety of different fields - including economics, law, philosophy and anthropology - to explore the ideas underlying Sen's critique of traditional approaches to injustice. The centrepiece of the book is the first chapter by Sen in which he outlines his conception of the relationship between economics, ethics and law. The rest of the book addresses a variety of theoretical and empirical issues that relate to this conception, concluding with a response from Sen to his critics
Social bonds as freedom : revisiting the dichotomy of the universal and the particular by Paul Dumouchel( )

8 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 898 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Central to discussions of multiculturalism and minority rights in modern liberal societies is the idea that the particular demands of minority groups contradict the requirements of equality, anonymity, and universality for citizenship and belonging. The contributors to this volume question the significance of this dichotomy between the universal and the particular, arguing that it reflects how the modern state has instituted the basic rights and obligations of its members and that these institutions are undergoing fundamental transformations under the pressure of globalization. They show that the social bonds uniting groups constitute the means of our freedom, rather than obstacles to achieving the universal.--
The ambivalence of scarcity and other essays by Paul Dumouchel( )

13 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 749 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"First published in French in 1979, "The Ambivalence of Scarcity" was a groundbreaking work on mimetic theory. Now expanded upon with new and never-before-published conference texts and essays, this version explores Rene Girard's philosophy in three sections: economy and economics, mimetic theory, and violence and politics in modern societies. The first section argues that though mimetic theory is in many ways critical of modern economic theory, this criticism can contribute to the enrichment of economic thinking. The second section explores the issues of nonviolence and misrecognition (meconnaissance), which have been at the center of many discussions of Girard's work. The final section proposes mimetic analyses of the violence typical of modern societies, from high school bullying to genocide and terrorist attacks. Politics, Dumouchel argues, is a violent means of protecting us from our own violent tendencies, and it can at times become the source of the very savagery from which it seeks to protect us. The book's conclusion analyzes the relationship between ethics and economics, opening new avenues of research and inviting further exploration."--Publisher

Comprendre pour agir violences, victimes et vengeances by violences, victimes et vengeances Colloque Comprendre pour agir( Book )

11 editions published between 2000 and 2014 in French and held by 122 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Les textes réunis dans cet ouvrage s'inscrivent dans le prolongement du Colloque international et interdisciplinaire organisé pour commémorer le 10e anniversaire de la tragédie de l'École Polytechnique. Comprendre pour agir, tel est le fil conducteur des contributions d'éminents universitaires, spécialistes de la réflexion sur la violence, et de praticiens de la gestion sociale de l'action violente et de ses conséquences. Composé de trois sections qui abordent les questions liées à la violence sous trois angles différents : l'anthropologie, l'éthique et le droit, l'ouvrage nous invite à se déprendre du mythe consistant à croire que la violence affecte notre société seulement de façon périphérique ou sous forme de déviance. Comprendre combien la violence est proche de nous est le premier pas à faire afin de saisir ce qui la motive et comment elle agit sur les victimes, sur leurs proches, mais aussi sur nous tous."

Émotions : essai sur le corps et le social by Paul Dumouchel( Book )

12 editions published between 1995 and 1999 in French and held by 108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Klappentext: L'émotion n'est pas un épisode privé dans la vie du sujet, et qui reçoit par la suite une socialisation qui la dompte ou qui la met en forme. Elle n'est ni un équilibre particulier des humeurs, ni un tressaillement des viscères, ni un état mental, ni, a fortiori, une réaction de la psyché confrontée au refoulé. Les émotions sont des œuvres communes auxquelles plusieurs participent
Vivre avec les robots : essai sur l'empathie artificielle by Paul Dumouchel( Book )

6 editions published in 2016 in French and held by 72 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

4e de couv. : Les robots sociaux sont conçus pour fonctionner au sein de milieux façonnés, contrôlés et occupés par des êtres humains. Leur apparence physique n'est pas faite pour tromper : ils restent aux yeux de tous des robots qui ne "singent" pas l'homme. Il est pourtant possible de leur conférer une individualité. Les recherches les plus avancées visent à les rendre capables d'émotions et à les doter d'empathie. La robotique sociale tend à créer des substituts, des robots susceptibles de nous remplacer dans certaines tâches, mais sans pour autant qu'ils prennent notre place. La majorité des objets techniques omniprésents dans notre vie demeurent invisibles tant qu'ils fonctionnent correctement. La présence active, qui est la condition essentielle de leur rôle de substitut, est au contraire la caractéristique centrale des robots sociaux. Ce livre dessine les traits d'une transformation technique, sociale et culturelle déjà en cours de réalisation, une relation de coévolution qui n'a jamais eu de précédent dans l'histoire de l'humanité. Cette relation avec des créatures artificielles dotées de compétences sociales et capables de remplir des rôles sociaux va conduire l'humanité à une bifurcation où des formes neuves de socialité seront susceptibles de surgir
