What do we do when we raise a child teach a student or educate a person as a member of society For the French philosopher Michel Serres all of these forms of pedagogy require painful yet exhilarating departures from home and encounters with Otherness Like a swimmer who plunges into the river s current to reach the opposite bank the person who wishes to learn must risk a voyage from the familiar to the strange True education Serres writes takes place in the fluid middle of this crossing To be educated is to become a harlequin a crossbreed a hybrid of our origins like a newborn child complexly produced as a mixture of maternal and paternal genes yet an independent existence separated from the familiar and determined br br In this wide ranging meditation on learning and difference Serres the scientist turned epistemologist philosopher turned moralist reveler of being a half breed from every point of view explores numerous pathways in philosophy science and literature to argue that the best contemporary education requires knowledge of both science s general truths and literature s singular stories He heralds a new pedagogy which claims that from the crossbreeding of the humanities and the sciences a new educational ideal can be born the troubadour of knowledge br br With his agile and poetic voice Serres has created a meditation of precisely this pluralistic creation deftly recognizing it as a third party bred not of orderly dialectics but of the destabilizing multiplicity of the present age Those who know the enormous range and clarity of this thinker will welcome this latest volume translated into English by Sheila Glaser with the assistance of William Paulson br br Michel Serres has taught at Clermont Ferrand the University of Paris VIII Vincennes the Sorbonne and Stanford University and has served as visiting professor at Johns Hopkins University Other works of his available in English translation include i Conversations on Science Culture and Time i with

par la presse Il est l un des rares philosophes contemporains proposer une vision du monde qui associe les sciences et la culture, Global environmental change argues Michel Serres has forced us to reconsider our relationship to nature In this translation of his influential book i Le Contrat Naturel i Serres calls for a natural contract to be negotiated between Earth and its inhabitants br br World history is often referred to as the story of human conflict Those struggles that are seen as our history must now include the uncontrolled violence that humanity perpetrates upon the earth and the uncontrollable menace to human life posed by the earth in reaction to this violence Just as a social contract once brought order to human relations Serres believes that we must now sign a natural contract with the earth to bring balance and reciprocity to our relations with the planet that gives us life Our survival depends on the extent to which humans join together and act globally on an earth now conceived as an entity br br Tracing the ancient beginnings of modernity Serres examines the origins and possibilities of a natural contract through an extended meditation on the contractual foundations of law and science By invoking a nonhuman physical world Serres asserts science frees us from the oppressive confines of a purely social existence but threatens to become a totalitarian order in its own right The new legislator of the natural contract must bring science and law into balance br br Serres ends his meditation by retelling the story of the natural contract as a series of parables He sees humanity as a spacecraft that with the help of science and technology has cast off from familiar moorings In place of the ties that modernity and analytic reason have severed we find a network of relations both stranger and stronger than any we once knew binding us to one another and to the world The philosopher s harrowing and joyous task Serres tells us is that of comprehending and experiencing the bonds of violence and love that unite us in our spacewalk to the spaceship Mother Earth br br Wise rich and poetic not simply a philosophical study of the Environment or an ecological questioning of Philosophy Nature is acknowledged as an inside force which breaks the philosopher s discourse and opens it up to a vigilant poetic meditation Substance A Review of Theory and Literary Criticism br, Although elected to the prestigious French Academy in Michel Serres has long been considered a maverick a provocative thinker whose prolific writings on culture science and philosophy have often baffled more than they have enlightened In these five lively interviews with sociologist Bruno Latour this increasingly important cultural figure sheds light on the ideas that inspire his highly original challenging and transdisciplinary essays br br Serres begins by discussing the intellectual context and historical events including the impact of World War II and Hiroshima which for him marked the beginning of science s ascendancy over the humanities that shaped his own philosophical outlook and led him to his lifelong mission of bringing together the texts of the humanities and the conceptual revolutions of modern science He then confronts the major difficulties encountered by his readers his methodology his mathematician s fondness for shortcuts in argument and his criteria for juxtaposing disparate elements from different epochs and cultures in extraordinary combinations Finally he discusses his ethic for the modern age a time when scientific advances have replaced the natural necessities of disease and disaster with humankind s frightening new responsibility for vital things formerly beyond its control br br In the course of these conversations Serres revisits and illuminates many of his themes the chaotic nature of knowledge the need for connections between science and the humanities the futility of traditional criticism and what he calls his philosophy of prepositions an argument for considering prepositions rather than the conventionally emphasized verbs and substantives as the linguistic keys to understanding human interactions For readers familiar with Serres s works as well as for the uninitiated i Conversations on a Life in Philosophy i provides fascinating insights into the mind of this appealing innovative and ardent thinker br br Michel Serres has taught at Clermont Ferrand at the University of Paris VIII Vincennes and at the Sorbonne He has served as visiting professor at Johns Hopkins University and has been on the faculty of Stanford University since Bruno Latour a philosopher and anthropologist is Professor of Sociology L Ecole Nationale Sup rieure des Mines in Paris He has written several books and
