Antoine Le Grand

[Revised entry by Patricia Easton on September 10, 2012. Changes to: Main text, Bibliography] Antoine Le Grand (1629 - 1699) was a philosopher and catholic theologian who played an important role in propagating the Cartesian philosophy in England during the latter half of the seventeenth century.

Judah Abrabanel

[Revised entry by Aaron Hughes on September 10, 2012. Changes to: Bibliography] Judah Abrabanel (ca. 1465 - after 1521), also known as Leone Ebreo, is an important transitional figure in the history of Jewish philosophy. Common to any transitional figure, however, is the problem of contextualization.

Philomag - Dossier - Pourquoi nous n'apprendrons plus comme avant

Avec Nicholas Carr // Salman Khan // Michel Serres // Raffaele Simone // Bernard Stiegler // Jean-Philippe Toussaint // Maryanne Wolf
"La révolution numérique n'est plus un slogan. Chaque jour, nous naviguons un peu plus, délaissons l'imprimé pour l'écran, stockons nos connaissances, vérifions sur Internet ce que nous dit un interlocuteur… ou un enseignant. Comment apprendre, lire, nous souvenir, transmettre, emportés par ce flux que nous maîtrisons encore mal ? Le danger de perdre la concentration et la mémoire, de négliger l'étude, de ne plus pouvoir enseigner, est réel. Mais le basculement de Gutenberg à Google porte aussi en lui l'espoir d'un esprit enfin libre – puisque des machines s'occupent de l'intendance – de se consacrer à l'essentiel : la pensée créatrice. Comme en son temps l'imprimerie, il n'est pas impossible qu'Internet fasse éclore un nouvel humanisme."

Redéfinir l’individu à la lumière de sa trajectoire et de ses rencontres

Appel à contributions - Comment articuler les approches et les méthodes pour dépasser un point de vue déterminé et réducteur, ou un point de vue excluant les trajectoires de vie singulières ? Entre historicité, déterminisme et hasard, les sciences humaines et sociales, la biologie ou la philosophie développent des méthodes, des approches et des modes d’explicitation qui amènent à sortir de l'opposition binaire entre déterminisme et hasard. Il s’agit ainsi de sortir d’une tendance forte à figer les individus en des substances anhistoriques et autonomes, de même que d’interroger une conception trop forte du déterminisme, qui reviendrait à en faire la prédétermination de tout ce qui est encore à venir.
