New PDF release: Qu'est-ce que le matérialisme?: Introduction à l'analyse des

By Patrick Tort

Le matérialisme que ce livre interroge et construit n'est pas une « philosophie », mais l. a. de possibilité et l'outil de l. a. connaissance goal.
Historiquement, il se confond avec l'élaboration de l. a. technology moderne s'affranchissant graduellement des contrats de parole qui l'asservissaient à l. a. métaphysique et à l. a. théologie. remark, d'une half, cette émancipation s'est-elle effectuée en des temps où une croyance instituée imposait a priori l. a. limite de l'Inconnaissable ? remark, d'autre half, une métaphysique résiduelle impose-t-elle toujours aux artisans de los angeles connaissance target, sans qu'ils s'en doutent, des cadres, des frontières, des démarches et des représentations ?
Ce livre montre qu'une examine savante des complexes de discours dans l'histoire permet de comprendre et d'améliorer ce qui constitue aujourd'hui l'acte de connaître. De redéfinir los angeles « moral sense ». De sortir des leitmotivs exténués sur le « hasard ». De penser plus authentiquement l. a. singularité émergente du vivant. De s'éloigner d'un modèle strictement nécessitariste du « déterminisme ». De sortir des impasses du réductionnisme. De résoudre les contradictions entre matérialisme et morale, ou entre déterminisme et conduites autonomes. D'entrevoir l'origine du symbolisme. De comprendre l. a. nature fondamentalement politique de l. a. faith. De penser l'articulation évolutive entre « nature » et « civilisation », et un lien cohérent et critique entre sciences de los angeles nature et sciences de l. a. société. D'identifier les comportements discursifs récurrents de ce que l'on nomme l'« idéologie ». Et d'édifier sur de nouvelles bases une histoire naturelle et sociale de los angeles liberté.
Revenant sur une half essentielle de son œuvre, Patrick Tort invite ici à une véritable réforme logique de l'initiative de connaissance, et, simultanément, à instruire los angeles méthode able d'éclairer les mécanismes qui l. a. favorisent ou qui los angeles combattent dans l'univers infini des discours.
