Éthiques, sciences et sociétés: pour de nouvelles figures de dialogue


  • Gilbert Hottois


[eng] Part I analysis the difficulties of dialog in the most pluridisciplinary context which might exist - i.e. bioethico-taking into account the claim for pluralism and the specific expectations of scientists and philosophers. Part II explains the author's prints of view (agnosticism, anthropocentrism and methodological materialism, wild operture of space and time framework). Part III explores the substitution of the complex paradigm of the "ethics committee" to the old simply modern concept of "scientific community" as a model for the whole society. [fre] La première partie analyse les difficultés du dialogue dans le contexte le plus pluridisciplinaire qui soit - la bioéthique -, compte tenu de l'exigence de pluralisme et des attentes propres aux scientifiques et aux philosophes. La deuxième partie explicite les présupposés de l'auteur (agnosticisme, anthropocentrisme et matérialisme méthodologiques, ouverture immense du cadre temporel et spatial). La troisième partie explore la substitution du paradigme complexe du «comité d'éthique» à l'ancien idéal simplement moderne de la «communauté scientifique» comme modèle de la société globale.
