No description available, Although elected to the prestigious French Academy in Michel Serres has long been considered a maverick a provocative thinker whose prolific writings on culture science and philosophy have often baffled more than they have enlightened In these five lively interviews with sociologist Bruno Latour this increasingly important cultural figure sheds light on the ideas that inspire his highly original challenging and transdisciplinary essays br br Serres begins by discussing the intellectual context and historical events including the impact of World War II and Hiroshima which for him marked the beginning of science s ascendancy over the humanities that shaped his own philosophical outlook and led him to his lifelong mission of bringing together the texts of the humanities and the conceptual revolutions of modern science He then confronts the major difficulties encountered by his readers his methodology his mathematician s fondness for shortcuts in argument and his criteria for juxtaposing disparate elements from different epochs and cultures in extraordinary combinations Finally he discusses his ethic for the modern age a time when scientific advances have replaced the natural necessities of disease and disaster with humankind s frightening new responsibility for vital things formerly beyond its control br br In the course of these conversations Serres revisits and illuminates many of his themes the chaotic nature of knowledge the need for connections between science and the humanities the futility of traditional criticism and what he calls his philosophy of prepositions an argument for considering prepositions rather than the conventionally emphasized verbs and substantives as the linguistic keys to understanding human interactions For readers familiar with Serres s works as well as for the uninitiated i Conversations on a Life in Philosophy i provides fascinating insights into the mind of this appealing innovative and ardent thinker br br Michel Serres has taught at Clermont Ferrand at the University of Paris VIII Vincennes and at the Sorbonne He has served as visiting professor at Johns Hopkins University and has been on the faculty of Stanford University since Bruno Latour a philosopher and anthropologist is Professor of Sociology L Ecole Nationale Sup rieure des Mines in Paris He has written several books and numerous articles on the ties between the sciences and the rest of culture and society br br Roxanne Lapidus is Managing Editor of i SubStance A Review of Theory and Literary Criticism i i Conversations on a Life in Philosophy i was originally published in France as i Eclaircissements i br, This English translation of Michel Serres book Gen se captures in lucid prose the startling breadth and depth of his thinking as he probes the relations between order disorder knowledge anxiety and violence Written in a unique blend of scientific discourse and lyrical outburst classical philosophical idiom and conversational intimacy by turns angry playful refined or discordant i Genesis i is an attempt to think outside of metaphysical categories of unity or rational order and to make us hear through both its content and form the noise the sound and the fury that are the background of life and thought br br Serres draws on a vast knowledge of such diverse disciplines as anthropology classical history music theology art history information theory physics biology dance and athletics and Western metaphysics and a range of cultural material that includes the writings of Plato Kant August Comte Balzac and Shakespeare to name a few He argues that although philosophy has been instrumental in the past in establishing laws of logic and rationality that have been crucial to our understanding of ourselves and our universe one of the most pressing tasks of thought today is to recognize that such pockets of unity are islands of order in a sea of multiplicity a sea which cannot really be i conceived i but which perhaps can still be sensed felt and i heard i raging in chaos beneath the momentary crests of order imposed by human civilization br br Philosophy of science or prose poetry a classical meditation on metaphysics or a stream of consciousness polemic and veiled invective Serres mounts a quirky at times rhapsodical but above all a noisy critique of traditional and current models in social theory historiography and aesthetics The result is a work that is at once provocative poetic deeply personal and ultimately religious an apocalyptic call for the rebirth of philosophy as the art of thinking the unthinkable br b About the Book b br br An intensely beautiful and rigourous meditation on the birth of forms amid chaos and multiplicity from a major philosopher who is also an exquisite craftsman of the written word William Paulson University of Michigan br br Serres exhibits a rare raw tendentiousness refreshing in its vitriol it s the sort of light hearted perverse and basically liberal tirade one hears too infrequently of late i Word i br, In this highly original and provocative book Michel Serres reflects on the relation between nature and culture and analyzes the origins of the world s contemporary environmental problems He does so through the surprising proposition that our cleanliness is our dirt While all living beings pollute to lay claim to their habitat humans have multiplied pollution s effects catastrophically since the Industrial Revolution through the economic system s mode of appropriation and its emphasis on mindless growth He warns that while we can measure what he calls hard pollution the poisoning of the Earth we ignore at our peril the disastrous impact of the soft pollution created by sound and images on our psyches Sounding the alarm that the planet is heading for disaster Serres proposes that humanity should stop trying to own the world and become renters Building on his earlier work especially that on hominization he urges us to establish a natural contract with nature br br Published with the assistance of the Edgar M Kahn Memorial Fund
