The ongoing debate among « orthodox » and « heterodox » economists, in which the latter's positions were branded an « economic negationism », is also an opportunity to recall, from afar and more broadly, the scientific requirement to dismiss the dominant paradigms, the delusional nature of an epistemological gap between exact and social sciences, and the imperative need to distinguish between scientific and academic issues ; which implies to consider not only that the debate is morally and [...]

Emilie Da Lage et Marc Dumont | 05.05.2016
Europe is going through a crisis that the media present as major, the so-called “migrant” or “refugee crisis”. With the terrorist attacks, the numerous wars in the Near East and Middle East, and a World in which instability has become the rule, European societies are compelled to think about how to welcome migrants and offer [...]
Comment interpréter la progression du Front national en France ?

Giving a new life to the Museum of Man in Paris has been a political and epistemological decision. The choice of assuming the past of anthropology is in dialogue with the future perspectives of globalisation. The Human Rights Esplanade has become a good place to surpass the nature/society dilemma.

Physicists can be annoying when they attack social systems. For example, when one of them learnedly explains in Le Monde the very close result of several elections from the early 2000s using elegant mathematical models… which are completely unrealistic. Or again when one of the most visible “socio-physicists” affirmed in 2007 in the prestigious English [...]

Orbán Viktor, the prime minister of Hungary, is planning to visit China this spring.
