L' utilité de l'inutile : manifeste by Nuccio Ordine( Book )

6 editions published between 2012 and 2016 in French and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Il n'est pas vrai - pas même en temps de crise - que seul ce qui est source de profit soit utile. Il existe dans les démocraties marchandes des savoirs réputés "inutiles" qui se révèlent en réalité d'une extraordinaire utilité. Dans cet ardent pamphlet, Nuccio Ordine attire notre attention sur l'utilité de l'inutile et sur l'inutilité de l'utile. A travers les réflexions de grands philosophes (Platon, Aristote, Tchouang-tseu, Pic de la Mirandole, Montaigne, Bruno, Campanella, Bacon, Kant, Tocqueville, Newman, Poincaré, Heidegger, Bataille) et de grands écrivains (Ovide, Dante, Pétrarque, Boccace, Alberti, l'Arioste, More, Shakespeare, Cervantès, Milton, Lessing, Leopardi, Hugo, Gautier, Dickens, Herzen, Baudelaire, Stevenson, Okakura Kakuzô, Garcia Lorca, Garcia Marquez, Ionesco, Calvino, Foster Wallace), Nuccio Ordine montre comment l'obsession de posséder et le culte de l'utilité finissent par dessécher l'esprit, en mettant en péril les écoles et les universités, l'art et la créativité, ainsi que certaines valeurs fondamentales telles que la dignitas honnnis, l'amour et la vérité
Comment nos médecins sont-ils formés? by Isabelle Richard( Book )
