L'ensemble des articles ayant pour mot clé : environment

Produire les communs à travers l’histoire.

Graber, Frédéric et Fabien Locher. 2018. Posséder la nature. Environnement et propriété dans l’histoire. Paris : Éditions Amsterdam.

Pierre-Mathieu Le Bel | 11.07.2019

The environmental and societal problems that humanity faces seem to emphasize always more emphatically the contradictory character of property as an act of exclusion and domination, if one is to respond to challenges of equity and mutual aid. On the contrary, it is important to try to make property coherent with a spirit of cohabitation. Posséder la nature adopts this aim. It offers a selection of articles or chapters unpublished in French, chosen on the basis of their stance [...]

La solution à tous vos /pʁɔblɛm/.

Ce que nous dit la langue.

Xavier BernierOlivier Lazzarotti et Jacques Lévy | 01.03.2019

Why did the word « problem » almost completely vanish from French-speaking public communication ? This event does confirm the importance of hyperbole, euphemism, and litotes in the dynamic of languages. This process also gives us clues about the actors of these changes: an uncoordinated multitude of ordinary speakers is capable, without any pre-set scheme, to set languages in motion. [...]

The dilemmas posed by industrial production and its pollution are not new. Jarrige and Le Roux show how, as early as in the 18th century, industrial societies perceived the problems related to pollution and how science and the state contributed to deal with their effects. [...]

La fonction de la nature dans l’urbanisme théorique.

Du milieu à l’instrument et au modèle.

Adrien Gey | 12.10.2015

This paper tries to understand and describe the place that nature occupies in sustainable city projects, and compare it with classical planning theory. We’ll see how natural elements have been constituted as a mechanical “environment”, that is to say as a frame influencing users, and a tool by prospective planning, before being considered a “model” by the green urbanism that took place in the “Grand Paris” consultation of 2009. [...]

La Suisse s’étale : c’est grave, docteur ?

Christian Schwick, Jochen Jaeger, René Bertiller, Felix Kienast, L’étalement urbain en Suisse — Impossible à freiner? Urban sprawl in Switzerland — unstoppable ?, Bern, Haupt, 2012.

In recent years, urban sprawl has been considered a phenomenon that must be restrained, both by political and scientific communities. The book reviewed in this paper contributes to the political awareness of the phenomenon. [...]
