Renaissance, now: Negotiating the release of Humanity in the age of plastic

Research output: Other contribution

3 Downloads (Pure)


Renaissance today is moved by the same need of Renaissance in the XIV-XVI centuries: a critique of Zeitgeist. Though, at that time it was too early, as humankind had not yet a consolidated notion of its universality and of its culturally diverse expressions. Perhaps, now, a veritable Renaissance needs to be made by alternately fold and unfold turns and returns, showing now a facet, then another, of a chain which links are not only ethics and ontology, but also epistemologies and attitudes. Such entaglement is necessarily animated by a basic dialectic confronting Nature's and Man's forces. As the past and the present, the future life of the Mankind on Earth is necessarily an eco-anthropology. Everybody may agree that there is no future for humans without Humanity as there is no future for sciences without Humanities.
