*Tariq Ramadan : Manifeste pour un nouveau « Nous »*

Tariq Ramadan : Manifeste pour un nouveau « Nous »

Face aux peurs légitimes, les occidentaux musulmans ne peuvent pas se contenter de minimiser, voire d’éviter les questions. Il est urgent qu’ils élaborent un discours critique qui refuse la position victimaire et qui dénonce les lectures radicales, littéralistes et/ou culturelles des textes religieux. Au nom même des principes de l’islam, ils doivent s’opposer à l’instrumentalisation de leur religion pour justifier par exemple le terrorisme, la violence domestique ou les mariages forcés. L’avenir de la communauté spirituelle musulmane exigera forcément des institutions de formations religieuses (études islamiques, islamologie, formation d’imams, etc.) établies en Occident et qui puissent répondre aux attentes des citoyens occidentaux. Avec la même attitude critique, il est important qu’ils ne cautionnent pas la confusion ambiante dans les débats de société : les problèmes sociaux, le chômage, la marginalisation et l’immigration ne sont pas des « problèmes religieux » et n’ont rien à voir avec l’islam. Il est impératif de refuser l’ « islamisation des questions éducatives et socio-économiques » : ces dernières exigent des solutions politiques et non religieuses.

*THE SLOW SCIENCE MANIFESTO* —> manifeste Slow_Science ❝We are scientists. We don't blog. We…

–-> #manifeste #Slow_Science

We are scientists. We don’t blog. We don’t twitter. We take our time.

Don’t get us wrong—we do say yes to the accelerated science of the early 21st century. We say yes to the constant flow of peer-review journal publications and their impact; we say yes to science blogs and media & PR necessities; we say yes to increasing specialization and diversification in all disciplines. We also say yes to research feeding back into health care and future prosperity. All of us are in this game, too.

However, we maintain that this cannot be all. Science needs time to think. Science needs time to read, and time to fail. Science does not always know what it might be at right now. Science develops unsteadi­ly, with jerky moves and un­predict­able leaps forward—at the same time, however, it creeps about on a very slow time scale, for which there must be room and to which justice must be done.

Slow science was pretty much the only science conceivable for hundreds of years; today, we argue, it deserves revival and needs protection. Society should give scientists the time they need, but more importantly, scientists must take their time.

We do need time to think. We do need time to digest. We do need time to mis­understand each other, especially when fostering lost dialogue between humanities and natural sciences. We cannot continuously tell you what our science means; what it will be good for; because we simply don’t know yet. Science needs time.
