De la table des dieux à la table des hommes by Summary

La littérature de l'Antiquité romaine nous fait découvrir de profondes mutations dans les imaginaires associés à la nourriture et dans les modèles d'acquisition, de préparation et de dégustation des aliments. Ces évolutions sont liées à la reconfiguration des valeurs esthétiques, idéologiques et symboliques à cette époque. Trois genres littéraires qui mettent en oeuvre l'alimentation - l'épopée, la satire, le roman satirique - sont ici étudiés. On trouvera dans ce livre une analyse du repas chez Virgile, Horace, Perse et Juvénal, Pétrone, Suétone.

Songes du temps by Sylvie Germain Summary

« Penser, vivre, être présent au monde, c'est essayer d'écouter-voir ce qui monte du fond des temps, se laisser troubler par des songes venus d'ailleurs, d'infiniment plus loin que soi, et cependant nous concernant au plus intime. »En méditant sur les fêtes, en parcourant les saisons d'un hiver à un autre, de l'Avent à la Toussaint, en s'arrêtant aux bords des jours les plus ordinaires comme des plus irradiés de mystère, en traversant aussi quelques nuits, étoilées ou obscures - Sylvie Germain donne au poids du temps un relief inédit. Docteur en philosophie, Prix Femina en 1989, Prix des Libraires religieux 1997, Sylvie Germain est l'auteur de plus d'une trentaine d'ouvrages, parmi lesquels : Le Livre des nuits, Les Échos du silence et À la table des hommes. Son dernier roman, Le vent reprend ses tours, est paru chez Albin Michel en 2019.

Mourir un peu by Sylvie Germain Summary

« Partir, dit-on, c'est mourir un peu. Mais partir d'où, pour aller où, et qu'entend-on par mourir un peu ? Comment le verbe mourir peut-il s'accommoder d'un adverbe de quantité alors qu'il désigne un événement à chaque fois unique, définitif, absolument inquantifiable ? Il en est du verbe mourir comme du verbe aimer : leur adjoindre un adverbe de quantité, d'intensité ou de manière revient à en moduler le sens de façon radicale, l'air de rien. Il m'aime / Elle m'aime / Je t'aime un peu, beaucoup, passionnément, à la folie... pas du tout , scandent les amoureux sur un ton enjoué en effeuillant des marguerites. Mais la désinvolture n'est qu'un masque, le jeu s'avère bien plus sérieux qu'il n'y paraît car l'enjeu est extrême en vérité - il en va présentement, ardemment de l'amour. On risque son coeur, sa joie, son plus vif espoir. L'amour, la mort : on ne badine ni avec l'un ni avec l'autre. Effeuiller le verbe mourir ainsi qu'une fleur des champs c'est mettre à nu son propre coeur, ses pensées, son espérance. » Dans ce livre, Sylvie Germain traque la dynamique de la quête spirituelle à travers le thème des pas, de l'arrachement de la mort à nous-mêmes, avec l'écriture vive et inspirée qu'on lui connaît. Prix Femina en 1989, Prix des Libraires religieux 1997, Sylvie Germain est l'auteur de plus d'une trentaine d'ouvrages, parmi lesquels Le Livre des nuits, Les Échos du silence et À la table des hommes.

Around the Hearth by Jérémy Lamaze,Maguelone Bastide Summary

From basic needs, such as lighting, heating or cooking, to symbolic or ritual engagement, hearths in indoor contexts serve as a focal point. This is especially evident, both spatially and architecturally, in structures containing central hearths. In assessing any gathering around a hearth, the types of social groups involved need to be determined and their interactions clearly assessed in each specific case. Beyond clearly domestic contexts, many rooms or buildings have been deemed religious or cultic places often based solely on the presence of a hearth, despite other possible interpretations. This volume appraises and contextualises diversity in practice centering on the hearth in the Aegean and, more widely, in areas of the Western Mediterranean closely connected to Greek civilization, notably through its colonies, revealing surprising similarities but also local adaptations. In the West, the use of the hearth often has a unique character arising from local adaptations born of indigenous practices. The combined approach presented here, detailing technical aspects of the hearths themselves, their architectural settings and any associated artefacts or furnishings, affords a rich spectrum for cross-cultural analysis between these Mediterranean regions.

Medicine, Trade and Empire by Palmira Fontes da Costa Summary

Garcia de Orta’s Colloquies on the Simples and Drugs of India (1563) was one of the first books to take advantage of the close relationship between medicine, trade and empire in the early modern period. The book was printed in Goa, the capital of the Portuguese empire in the East, and the city where the author, a Portuguese physician of Jewish ancestry, lived for almost thirty years. It presents a vast array of medical information on various drugs, spices, plants, fruits and minerals native to India or adjoining territories. In addition, it includes information concerning indigenous methods of healing as well as a far-reaching assessment of ancient and modern authors on Asian materia medica. Orta’s book had a market in Asia but was particularly valuable to a European audience. It soon attracted the attention of various European authors and printers by providing the basis for adaptations, commentaries and editions in various languages, prompting a successful and complex trail of medical knowledge in transit. Authored by an interdisciplinary team of prominent international scholars, the volume takes into account recent historiographical trends and provides a contextualized and innovative analysis of the histories and reception of the Colloquies. It emphasizes the value of the work to historians today as a symbol of the impact of geographical expansion and globalization in a sixteenth-century medical world.

Shameless by Cristiana Franco Summary

The figure of the dog is a paradox. As in so many cultures, past and present, the dog in ancient Greece was seen as the animal closest to humans, even as it elicited from them the most negative representations. Still a loaded term today, the word bitch not only signified shamelessness and a lack of self-control but was also exclusively figured as female. Woman and dogs in the Greek imagination were intimately intertwined, and in this careful, engaging analysis, Cristiana Franco explores the ancients' complex relationship with both. By analyzing the relationship between humans and dogs as depicted in a vast array of myths, proverbs, spontaneous metaphors, and comic jokes, Franco in particular shows how the symbolic overlap between dog and woman provided the conceptual tools to maintain feminine subordination. Intended for general readers as well as scholars, Shameless extends the boundaries of classics and anthropology, forming a model of the sensitive work that can be done to illuminate how deeply animals are imbricated in human history. The English translation has been revised and expanded from the original Italian edition, and it includes a new methodological appendix by the author that points the way toward future work in the emerging field of human-animal studies.

The Greek World by Anton Powell Summary

Studying from the Mycenean to the late Hellenistic period, this work includes new articles by twenty-seven specialists of ancient Greece, and presents an examination of the Greek cultures of mainland Greece, Asia Minor, Egypt and Italy. With the chapters sharing the theme of social history, this fascinating book focuses on women, the poor, and the slaves – all traditionally seen as beyond the margins of powerand includes the study of figures who were on the literal margins of the Greek world. Bringing to the forefront the research into areas previously thought of as marginal, Anton Powell sheds new light on vital topics and authors who are central to the study of Greek culture. Plato’s reforms are illuminated through a consideration of his impatient and revolutionary attitude to women, and Powell also examines how the most potent symbol of central Greek history – the Parthenon – can be understood as a political symbol when viewed with the knowledge of the cosmetic techniques used by classical Athenian women. The Greek World is a stimulating and enlightening interaction of social and political history, comprehensive, and unique to boot, students will undoubtedly benefit from the insight and knowledge it imparts.

Classical Literature and Posthumanism by Summary

The subject of the posthuman, of what it means to be or to cease to be human, is emerging as a shared point of debate at large in the natural and social sciences and the humanities. This volume asks what classical learning can bring to the table of posthuman studies, assembling chapters that explore how exactly the human self of Greek and Latin literature understands its own relation to animals, monsters, objects, cyborgs and robotic devices. With its widely diverse habitat of heterogeneous bodies, minds, and selves, classical literature again and again blurs the boundaries between the human and the non-human; not to equate and confound the human with its other, but playfully to highlight difference and hybridity, as an invitation to appraise the animal, monstrous or mechanical/machinic parts lodged within humans. This comprehensive collection unites contributors from across the globe, each delving into a different classical text or narrative and its configuration of human subjectivity-how human selves relate to other entities around them. For students and scholars of classical literature and the posthuman, this book is a first point of reference.

The Werewolf in the Ancient World by Daniel Ogden Summary

In a moonlit graveyard somewhere in southern Italy, a soldier removes his clothes in readiness to transform himself into a wolf. He depends upon the clothes to recover his human shape, and so he magically turns them to stone, but his secret is revealed when, back in human form, he is seen to carry a wound identical to that recently dealt to a marauding wolf. In Arcadia a man named Damarchus accidentally tastes the flesh of a human sacrifice and is transformed into a wolf for nine years. At Temesa Polites is stoned to death for raping a local girl, only to return to terrorize the people of the city in the form of a demon in a wolfskin. Tales of the werewolf are by now well established as a rich sub-strand of the popular horror genre; less widely known is just how far back in time their provenance lies. These are just some of the werewolf tales that survive from the Graeco-Roman world, and this is the first book in any language to be devoted to their study. It shows how in antiquity werewolves thrived in a story-world shared by witches, ghosts, demons, and soul-flyers, and argues for the primary role of story-telling-as opposed to rites of passage-in the ancient world's general conceptualization of the werewolf. It also seeks to demonstrate how the comparison of equally intriguing medieval tales can be used to fill in gaps in our knowledge of werewolf stories in the ancient world, thereby shedding new light on the origins of the modern phenomenon. All ancient texts bearing upon the subject have been integrated into the discussion in new English translations, so that the book provides not only an accessible overview for a broad readership of all levels of familiarity with ancient languages, but also a comprehensive sourcebook for the ancient werewolf for the purposes of research and study.

The One-Sex Body on Trial: The Classical and Early Modern Evidence by Helen King Summary

By far the most influential work on the history of the body, across a wide range of academic disciplines, remains that of Thomas Laqueur. This book puts on trial the one-sex/two-sex model of Laqueur's Making Sex: Body and Gender from the Greeks to Freud through a detailed exploration of the ways in which two classical stories of sexual difference were told, retold and remade from the mid-sixteenth to the nineteenth century. Agnodike, the 'first midwife' who disguises herself as a man and then exposes herself to her potential patients, and Phaethousa, who grows a beard after her husband leaves her, are stories from the ancient world that resonated in the early modern period in particular. Tracing the reception of these tales shows how they provided continuity despite considerable change in medicine, being the common property of those on different sides of professional disputes about women's roles in both medicine and midwifery. The study reveals how different genres used these stories, changing their characters and plots, but always invoking the authority of the classics in discussions of sexual identity. The study raises important questions about the nature of medical knowledge, the relationship between texts and observation, and the understanding of sexual difference in the early modern world beyond the one-sex model.

Hippocrates' Woman by Helen King Summary

Hippocrates' Woman demonstrates the role of Hippocratic ideas about the female body in the subsequent history of western gynaecology. It examines these ideas not only in the social and cultural context in which they were first produced, but also the ways in which writers up to the Victorian period have appealed to the material in support of their own theories. Among the conflicting tange of images of women given in the Hippocratic corpus existed one tradition of the female body which says it is radically unlike the male body, behaving in different ways and requiring a different set of therapies. This book sets this model within the context of Greek mythology, especially the myth of Pandora and her difference from men, to explore the image of the body as something to be read. Hippocrates' Woman presents an arresting study of the origins of gynaecology, an exploration of how the interior workings of the female body were understood and the influence of Hippocrates' theories on the gynaecology of subsequent ages.

Memories of Odysseus by Hartog Francois Hartog Summary

This is a book about identity, about how the ancient Greeks saw themselves and others, and what this tells us in turn about Greek mentality and culture. It looks at voyagers and explorers, at travels in reality and in the mind, and shows what these reveal at key points in Greek history from the creation of Homer's monumental epic around 700 BC to the high Roman imperial period some eight hundred years later. The author takes us first to the journeyings of Odysseus, considering the returning warrior's concerns of witness and memory and finding in the epic the themes that will preoccupy the Greeks over the centuries. He then travels to Egypt with Herodotus, to the problematically 'barbarian' world of Persia and the Near East with Alexander the Great, to old Greece with the fictional Scythian Anacharsis, to the new Greek world under Roman domination with Polybius, Dionysius of Halicarnassos and Strabo, and finally to the Asia Minor of the first-century AD sage Apollonius of Tyana in the company of Philostratos. He examines both what their representations of these lands meant in their own day and how they were received in later times. He looks in particular at the importance of the invention of the barbarian and the "e;other"e;, first in the theoretical process of desribing and accounting for the outside world, and secondly at the justification it gives for the practical reshaping of alien space through conquest and assimilation - themes which have had, as he points out, a more recent resonance. Francois Hartog draws widely on ancient and modern authors to create a cultural history of ancient Greece that sheds a new and revealing light on the Greeks and the history of humankind more generally.

Greek Myth and Religion by Albert Henrichs Summary

This volume contains the collected papers of Albert Henrichs on numerous subjects in ancient Greek myth and religion. What was ancient Greek religion really like? What is the reality of belief and action that lies behind the unwieldy sources, which stem from vast areas and epochs of the ancient world? What is the meaning, intended and otherwise, of religious action and speech in ancient Greece? Who were the Greek gods, how were they worshipped, and how were they viewed by those who worshipped them? One of the leading students of ancient Greek religion over the past five decades, Albert Henrichs, the Eliot Professor of Greek Literature at Harvard University, combines wide and deep learning, a pragmatic, incisive approach to the sources, and an apt use of comparative perspectives. Henrichs breaks new ground in discussing sacrifice, libation, cultic identity, religious action and speech, epiphany, and the personalities of the gods. Special attention is devoted to ancient Greek sources on the ancient Persian prophet Mani, founder of Manichaeism. As a group, Albert Henrichs’ papers on Greek religion offer a basic education on Greek myth and religion and constitute a blueprint for serious study of the subject.

Before Sexuality by Froma I. Zeitlin,John J. Winkler,David M. Halperin Summary

A dream in which a man has sex with his mother may promise him political or commercial success--according to dream interpreters of late antiquity, who, unlike modern Western analysts, would not necessarily have drawn conclusions from the dream about the dreamer's sexual psychology. Evidence of such shifts in perspective is leading scholars to reconsider in a variety of creative ways the history of sexuality. In these fifteen original essays, eminent cultural historians and classicists not only discuss sex, but demonstrate how norms, practices, and even the very definitions of what counts as sexual activity have varied significantly over time. Ancient Greece offers abundant evidence for a radically different set of sexual standards and behaviors from ours. Sex in ancient Hellenic culture assumed a variety of social and political meanings, whereas the modern development of a sex-centered model of personality now leads us to view sex as the key to understanding the individual. Drawing on both the Anglo-American tradition of cultural anthropology and the French tradition of les sciences humaines, these essays explore the iconography, politics, ethics, poetry, and medical practices that made sex in ancient Greece not a paradise of liberation but an exotic locale hardly recognizable to visitors from the modern world. In addition to the editors, the contributors to this volume are Peter Brown, Anne Carson, Franoise Frontisi-Ducroux, Maud W. Gleason, Ann Ellis Hanson, Franois Lissarrague, Nicole Loraux, Maurice Olender, S.R.F. Price, James Redfield, Giulia Sissa, and Jean-Pierre Vernant.

Rituals of Death and Dying in Modern and Ancient Greece by Evy Johanne Håland Summary

*Winner of the AFS Elli Köngäs-Maranda Prize 2016* Multidisciplinary or post-disciplinary research is what is needed when dealing with such complex subjects as ritual behaviour. This research, therefore, combines ethnography with historical sources to examine the relationship between modern Greek death rituals and ancient written and visual sources on the subject of death and gender. The central theme of this work is women’s role in connection with the cult of the dead in ancient and modern Greece. The research is based on studies in ancient history combined with the author’s fieldwork and anthropological analysis of today’s Mediterranean societies. Since death rituals have a focal and lasting importance, and reflect the gender relations within a society, the institutions surrounding death may function as a critical vantage point from which to view society. The comparison is based on certain religious festivals that are dedicated to deceased persons and on other death rituals. Using laments, burials and the ensuing memorial rituals, the relationship between the cult dedicated to deceased mediators in both ancient and modern society is analysed. The research shows how the official ideological rituals are influenced by the domestic rituals people perform for their own dead, and vice versa, that the modern domestic rituals simultaneously reflect the public performances. As this cult has many parallels with the ancient official cult, the following questions are central: Can an analysis of modern public and domestic rituals in combination with ancient sources tell the reader more about the ancient death cult as a whole? What does such an analysis suggest about the relationship between the domestic death cult and the official? Since the practical performance of the domestic rituals was – and still remains – in the hands of women, it is crucial to discover the extent of their influence to elucidate the real power relations between women and men. This research represents a new contribution to earlier presentations of the Greek “reality”, but mainly from the female perspective, which is highly significant since men produced most of the ancient sources. This means that the principal objective for this endeavour is to question the ways in which history has been written through the ages, to supplement the male with a female perspective, perhaps complementing an Olympian Zeus with a Chthonic Mother Earth. The research brings both ancient and modern worlds into mutual illumination; its relevance therefore transcends the Greek context both in time and space.

Locronan a la gueule de bois by Marie Vaillant Summary

Le capitaine Antoine Guillou et Fanch Le Berre réouvrent une enquête vieille de dix ans et ainsi poussent le meurtier impuni à reprendre du service... Le capitaine Antoine Guillou parvient à convaincre Fanch Le Berre de reprendre une enquête inaboutie, datant de près de dix ans. Il s’agit d’élucider l’assassinat d’un couple de personnes âgées perpétré près de Locronan. Un ingénieur, à la retraite, et sa gouvernante y avaient trouvé une mort brutale. Personnages au comportement jugé étrange, ils vivaient reclus dans leur maison isolée. D’où venaient-ils ? De qui se cachaient-ils ? Nul ne le savait. Quelques jours après leur enterrement, leur seule relation de voisinage fut renversée par une voiture non identifiée. Dix ans plus tard, inquiet de la réouverture de l’enquête, le meurtrier reprend du service. Antoine et Fanch vont devoir suivre des chemins détournés pour parvenir à dénouer le fil conducteur qui les mènera au coupable. Grâce à ce polar haletant, plongez au cœur de la Bretagne et suivez pas à pas les investigations d'Antoine et Fanch, qui vont devoir suivre des chemins détournés pour parvenir à démasquer le coupable. EXTRAIT Antoine avança l’hypothèse que, à proximité de la mer, l’iode pouvait expliquer pareil comportement. À moins que ce ne soit l’effet du radon contenu dans les roches du Massif armoricain ? Lorsque le fermier descendit de son engin, Fanch remarqua que lui aussi portait des chaussures de protection. Le temps, c’est de l’argent ; par conséquent, mieux vaut veiller à n’en perdre jamais. Maréchal ne voulait pas en gaspiller, surtout pas en formules de politesse. — C’est pourquoi ? Entraîné malgré lui dans une économie de langage, Antoine fonça droit au but. — Où étiez-vous lorsque les deux retraités ont été assassinés ? — Qu’est-ce que ça peut vous foutre ? Je faisais mon travail. Point barre. La carte de police d’Antoine fit une brève apparition. — Montrez-vous plus coopératif, sinon vous allez vous retrouver à la brigade vite fait. — Fallait le dire. — Nous vous avons posé une question, veuillez y répondre. — J’ai répondu. Je faisais mon travail. — Comment avez-vous appris la nouvelle ? — Par le journal. Nous le recevons tous les jours à la ferme. — Et quand vous l’avez su, qu’avez-vous fait ? Deux petits yeux verts s’affolèrent dans la face ronde de l’éleveur, et se portèrent avec une célérité remarquable de l’un à l’autre de ses interlocuteurs, exprimant une totale incompréhension. — Que voulez-vous que je fasse. J’ai replié mon journal, j’ai pris mon petit-déjeuner et je me suis remis au boulot. — Où se trouvait votre épouse, à ce moment-là ? — En salle de traite. Nous avons une trentaine de vaches laitières et quelques veaux. Faut bien que quelqu’un s’en occupe. — Vous ne vous en occupez pas vous-même ? — Si, je nettoie l’étable. Quand la traite est terminée, les bêtes reviennent à leur place, où je leur donne du foin et du broyat de maïs. Ma femme va déjeuner à son tour puis elle s’occupe de les sortir. Après, chacun repart à ses occupations. — Donc, le jour du meurtre, vous n’êtes pas allé au bourg. — Non. Le lendemain non plus. — Bien, merci.

Rethinking Progress by Jeffrey C. Alexander,Piotr Sztompka Summary

Rethinking Progress provides a challenging reevaluation of one of the crucial ideas of Western civilization; the notion of progress. Progress often seems to have become self-defeating, producing ecological deserts, overpopulated cities, exhausted resources, decaying cultures, and widespread feelings of alienation. The contributors, from all over the world, present their diversified perspectives on the fate of progress.

Old Age in Greek and Latin Literature by Thomas M. Falkner,Judith deLuce Summary

This volume explores the significance of old age in Greek and Latin poetry and dramatic literature, not just in relation to other textual and historical concerns, but as a cultural and intellectual reality of central importance to understanding the works themselves. The book discusses a wide range of authors, from Homer to Aristophanes, Sophocles, and Euripides; from Horace to Vergil, Ovid, and beyond. Classical scholarship on these texts is enriched by a variety of interdisciplinary perspectives drawn from such fields as anthropology, social history, literary theory, psychology, and gerontology. The contributions examine the many and complex representations of old age in classical literature: their relation to the social and psychological realities of old age, their connection with the author’s own place in the human life course, their metaphorical and symbolic capacity as poetic vehicles for social and ethical values.

Greek Comedy and Ideology by David Konstan Summary

In comedy, happy endings resolve real-world conflicts. These conflicts, in turn, leave their mark on the texts in the form of gaps in plot and inconsistencies of characterization. Greek Comedy and Ideology analyzes how the structure of ancient Greek comedy betrays and responds to cultural tensions in the society of the classical city-state. It explores the utopian vision of Aristophanes' comedies--for example, an all-powerful city inhabited by birds, or a world of limitless wealth presided over by the god of wealth himself--as interventions in the political issues of his time. David Konstan goes on to examine the more private world of Menandrean comedy (including two adaptations of Menander by the Roman playwright Terence), in which problems of social status, citizenship, and gender are negotiated by means of elaborately contrived plots. In conclusion, Konstan looks at an imitation of ancient comedy by Moliére, and the way in which the ideology of emerging capitalism transforms the premises of the classical genre.

Critique de la faculté de manger by Jean-Claude Castanié Summary

La confrontation de la philosophie et de la cuisine permet de découvrir la nature de chacune de ces pratiques et ce qui tend à les opposer. La philosophie par vocation se tient éloignée de la vie mortelle. Attachée à la vie mortelle, la cuisine fait de la nécessité de se nourrir un plaisir quotidiennement renouvelé et qui tient une place centrale dans la vie ordinaire de la plupart des hommes. Voilà pourquoi la philosophie ignore la cuisine et méprise le plaisir de manger.

Le ventre des philosophes by Michel Onfray Summary

Quand les philosophes pensent, ils oublient, le plus souvent, de penser à leur corps et surtout à ce qu'ils y accumulent lorsqu'ils mangent. Pourtant, entre la pensée et la panse, il existe un réseau complexe d'affinités et d'aveux que la réflexion aurait tort de négliger : Diogène aurait-il été cet adversaire de la civilisation et de ses usages sans son goût pour le poulpe cru ? Le Rousseau du {Contrat social} aurait-il fait l'apologie de la frugalité si ses menus ordinaires ne s'étaient composés que de laitages ? Sartre lui-même, dont les cauchemars sont emplis de crabes, n'a-t-il pas, sa vie durant, payé - dans l'ordre de la théorie - son aversion pour les crustacés ? Dans cet essai résolument nietzschéen, Michel Onfray a donc choisi de redonner une dignité philosophique au cabillaud, au potage à l'orge, au vin, à l'andouillette, au café aromatisé ou à l'eau de Cologne qui sont - de Fourier à Marinetti, et de Kant aux existentialistes - les chemins improbables du gai savoir. Critique de la raison diététique ? Ebauche d'une "diététhique" ? Il s'agira d'abord, dans ce livre, de surprendre l'instant, et l'aliment, à partir duquel le corps rattrape l'esprit et lui dicte sa loi.

Des Amazones et des femmes by Cécile Voisset-Veysseyre Summary

En prenant pour objet l'usage que les femmes ont pu faire du mythe grec des Amazones, mythe dont les hommes sont les auteurs, ce livre donne à découvrir des textes littéraires et théoriques qui enrichissent la pratique philosophique. Il montre que la question amazonienne outrepasse celle des sexes et qu'elle implique une réflexion ouverte c'est-à-dire libérée des représentations tant anciennes que modernes. Cette réflexion sur de mythiques célibataires dont les amours nous échappent pare-t-elle à l'image épouvantable d'Amazones belliqueuses et tueuses.

Le Chant du reptile by Yves Cornudet Summary

Un médecin allopathe, originaire du pays de l’Argoat (Côtes d’Armor), passionné de pêche à la mouche, va vivre une étrange expérience qui bouleversera sa vie et ses certitudes et qui va l’entraîner dans une aventure ésotérique et initiatique. Une équipe se forme et sera appelée à venir en aide à notre planète « Gaïa » dans l’expectative d’un changement de dimension en l’an 2012. Pour cela, ils devront prendre conscience de la réalité de certains faits qui leur étaient jusqu’à présent inconnus. Crop-circles, manipulation du monde médical, Merkabah, effet miroir, état de maître, décodage biologique, labyrinthes, énergie libre, chakras, amour inconditionnel, etc., seront pour eux de nouvelles réalités qui vont les transformer. Leur première aventure va les amener en Angleterre, sur le site de Stonehenge, puis au sein des cathédrales gothiques pour éveiller le chakra cardiaque de Gaïa... Créant une réaction qu’ils n’avaient pas prévue. Plusieurs mois plus tard, ils vont se retrouver à Rennes-le-Château pour une nouvelle aventure initiatique riche en péripéties et en apprentissages. Leur rencontre avec Joël Ducatillon et Maria va alors les conforter dans la certitude que l’homme est verrouillé et qu’il peut se libérer s’il en prend conscience. De fil en aiguille, toutes ses connaissances et l’étude des éléments laissés par l’abbé Saunière, ex-curé de Rennes-le-Château, vont les mener inexorablement vers le tombeau de Jésus remettant en cause les textes diffusés par le Vatican depuis vingt siècles...

Lorsqu'elle apprend qu'un complot contre Hitler est en préparation, elle décide de s'engager au côté d'un jeune et séduisant officier rebelle. Mais dans cet univers de chaos, comment oser croire en un avenir ? Ils vont devoir tout risquer pour espérer, un jour, vivre dans un monde en paix...

Cinepoems and Others by Benjamin Fondane Summary

Benjamin Fondane was that rarest of poets: an experimental formalist with a powerful lyric poetic voice; a renegade surrealist who was also a highly original existential philosopher; a self-consciously Jewish poet of diaspora and loss, whose last manuscripts made it out of Drancy in 1944 just before his deportation to Auschwitz-Birkenau, where he was murdered, yet whose poetry speaks of an overflowing plenitude. This bilingual selection is the first volume of Fondane’s poetry to appear in English, and it includes a broad sample of his work, from the coruscating and comic cinepoems of his surrealist years, to philosophical meditations, to poems that in their secular and mystical Judaism confront the historical calamity—and imaginative triumph—of European Jewry.

La Société automatique by Bernard Stiegler Summary

Le 19 juillet 2014, le journal Le Soir révélait à Bruxelles que selon des estimations américaines, britanniques et belges, la France, la Belgique, le Royaume-Uni, l’Italie, la Pologne et les États-Unis pourraient perdre entre 43 et 50 % de leurs emplois dans les dix à quinze prochaines années. Trois mois plus tard, le Journal du dimanche soutenait que trois millions d’emplois seraient condamnés à disparaître en France au cours des dix prochaines années. L’automatisation intégrée est le principal résultat de ce que l’on appelle « l’économie des data ». Organisant des boucles de rétroactions à la vitesse de la lumière (à travers les réseaux sociaux, objets communicants, puces RFID, capteurs, actionneurs, calcul intensif sur données massives appelées big data, smart cities et robots en tout genre) entre consommation, marketing, production, logistique et distribution, la réticulation généralisée conduit à une régression drastique de l’emploi dans tous les secteurs – de l’avocat au chauffeur routier, du médecin au manutentionnaire – et dans tous les pays. Pourquoi le rapport remis en juin 2014 au président de la République française par Jean Pisani-Ferry occulte-t-il ces prévisions ? Pourquoi le gouvernement n’ouvre-t-il pas un débat sur l’avenir de la France et de l’Europe dans ce nouveau contexte ? L’automatisation intégrale et généralisée fut anticipée de longue date – notamment par Karl Marx en 1857, par John Maynard Keynes en 1930, par Norbert Wiener et Georges Friedmann en 1950, et par Georges Elgozy en 1967. Tous ces penseurs y voyaient la nécessité d’un changement économique, politique et culturel radical. Le temps de ce changement est venu, et le présent ouvrage est consacré à en analyser les fondements, à en décrire les enjeux et à préconiser des mesures à la hauteur d’une situation exceptionnelle à tous égards – où il se pourrait que commence véritablement le temps du travail. Bernard Stiegler, philosophe, est notamment l’auteur de la Technique et le Temps, Mécréance et discrédit, Ce qui fait que la vie vaut la peine d’être vécue, États de choc. Bêtise et savoir au XXIe siècle. Depuis 2006, il dirige l’Institut de recherche et d’innovation (IRI) et préside l’association Ars Industrialis, Association internationale pour une politique industrielle des technologies de l’esprit.
