La « revue indisciplinaire de sciences sociales » EspacesTemps a eu quarante ans en octobre 2015. Cette publication, née à l’École normale supérieure de Cachan, a connu une version imprimée payante (Les Cahiers, 1975-2004), d’abord relayée puis remplacée par une version en ligne gratuite (EspacesTemps.net, depuis 2002).Pour fêter cet anniversaire, la revue organise une journée de rencontres le 11 mars 2016 à la Sorbonne, amphithéâtre Émile Durkheim.C’est d’abord l’occasion de tenter un bilan systématique de la production éditoriale d’EspacesTemps, en profitant de l’auto-analyse de membres des comités de rédaction qui se sont succédé et d’une petite partie des nombreux auteurs qui ont publié dans la revue.C’est ensuite le moment d’une réflexion élargie sur quarante ans de [...]

What’s new ?

La re-cherche, un roman ?

Meur, Diane. 2015. La carte des Mendelssohn, roman. Paris : Sabine Wespierser.

Olivier Lazzarotti | 02.02.2016

Diane Meur’s book claims to be a novel about the descending genealogy of the Enlightenment philosopher Moses Mendelssohn, but the narrative is also about the author’s quest. Therefore, the book offers its readers a rich experience of research whose approach resembles current ones in social sciences and humanities, although these are not always explicit. [...]

Romaric Jannel @en | 26.01.2016

Philosophy and the history of science have considerably evolved since the 19th century. New practices and questions have emerged, first among scientists themselves according to Rheinberger, then among philosophers. The historical, social and anthropological dimensions of the history of [...]

Être contre, c’est être tout contre.

Géraldine Pellé | 04.01.2016

Being against something is not only about being opposed to something but being closely against. In this paper, I aim to explore the subtle way of « that with which you don’t agree with » because it raises the [...]

Le Monde, comme si vous y étiez.

Les nourritures terrestres de l’Expo 2015 à Milan.

Jacques Lévy | 13.07.2015 illustration Le Monde, comme si vous y étiez.

The topic of Milan’s World Expo 2015, “Feed the Planet” appears simultaneously mediocre, disputable, and complacent. Beyond this mixture of commerce, ecology and geopolitics, couldn’t we find there an indication that the very raison d’être of this kind of event has been exhausted? [...]

Virtualités.

Jacques Lévy @en | 17.12.2013

Among the interviews conducted in Geneva, general and abstract speeches on the future are rare. This does not prove that the future is absent from discourses and imaginations ; it could mean that the tools we use do not [...]

Gérard Martial Amougou @en | 01.12.2015

Si la question de l’individualisation reste largement à écrire au sein des sociétés occidentales, le traitement de l’individualité dans le Reste-du-monde semble davantage pressant. L’ouvrage collectif dirigé par Emmanuel Lozerand esquisse un panorama des conceptions plurielles de l’individu ailleurs, [...]

Deleuze bashing.

Hervé Regnauld | 28.04.2015

Traversals

The Car-Society and Beyond.

Jacques Lévy @en | 01.12.2015

This Traversal marks the official opening of a scientific partnership between EspacesTemps.net and the PostCarWorld interdisciplinary research project, funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation (2014-2016).As one can notice by browsing the contents of the already-published articles in this series, some papers were released before the start of the project, sometimes by authors that are now members of this research group. This simply shows that, for a social sciences journal that takes inhabited space and urbanity seriously, it makes sense to pay attention [...]
