  • Le seul livre qui fait le point sur un retour de Mein Kampf et sa haine extrême dans le domaine public, notamment en ligne et explique la force du contre-discours, et d'un label anti-haine original, initié par les auteurs.
    Écrit sous forme de récit, sans jargon, Robert Misrahi nous invite à suivre ses pas dans sa vie de philosophe, vécue comme une vie « d'engagement en philosophie »...

    Ce qu'en dit l'auteur : En rassemblant les principaux résultats de mes écrits, j'accomplis une tâche supplémentaire : je dresse comme un bilan. Le temps vient toujours de faire un bilan de sa vie. Pour moi, ce sera le bilan d'une oeuvre. Que ce bilan ne soit en fait jamais réellement "bouclé", puisque j'ai bien l'intention d'écrire durant tout le temps qu'il me sera possible de le faire, ne signifie pas qu'un regard sur un demi-siècle de production ne puisse dégager des lignes de pensée dominantes et des propositions fermes et constantes.
    Plus précisément encore, ce regard synthétique et rétroactif, ce redéploiement ramassé de ma pensée pourrait valoir comme la validation ultime d'un itinéraire existentiel et d'une oeuvre. Celle-ci révélerait alors dans son unité comme une philosophie pour vivre, c'est-à-dire comme une éthique.

  • Héros méconnu de la Seconde Guerre mondiale et génie visionnaire - l'inventeur de l'ordinateur, c'est lui -, Alan Turing a révolutionné nos vies. Et il est mort en paria.

    Dans un futur proche. Les transhumanistes ont gagné. L'IA (intelligence artificielle) domine désormais le monde. Mais elle a une obsession : réhabiliter la mémoire de son " père ", le génial mathématicien anglais Alan Turing. Pour cela, il lui faut établir la preuve qu'il ne s'est pas suicidé, comme l'a toujours prétendu la version officielle, mais qu'il a été assassiné. En quête du moindre indice, elle remonte le fil de sa vie...
    En décodant Enigma, la machine de cryptage des forces allemandes, fierté du régime hitlérien sur laquelle les services secrets alliés se cassaient les dents, Alan Turing a largement influé sur le cours de l'histoire. En créant l'ordinateur, il a inventé le futur. Pourtant, ce jeune homosexuel au QI exceptionnel a connu un destin terrible : traité en renégat par sa propre patrie, il est mort d'empoisonnement au cyanure dans des circonstances suspectes en 1954, en pleine guerre froide, peu après avoir accepté la castration chimique pour échapper à la prison. Dans l'Angleterre puritaine et ultraconservatrice de l'après-guerre, influencée par le maccarthysme américain, qui avait intérêt à faire éliminer Turing, l'homme qui en savait trop ?
    Entre histoire, espionnage, science et secrets d'État, un " biopic " mené comme un thriller où l'on croise Churchill, Eisenhower, Hitler, Truman, Staline, les espions de Cambridge, de Gaulle, et jusqu'à l'ombre inquiétante de John Edgar Hoover.

  • One of France's best-selling writers at the time of the novel's composition, Dumas here combines what he considered to be life's essentials - `l'action et l'amour'. This historical romance is the climax of his epic of chivalry and valour that began with The Three Musketeers, and it is here that Athos, Porthos, Aramis, and their friend d'Artagnan, once invincible, meet their destinies.

    This edition provides background information and notes crucial to an understanding of the legend and the novel's setting.

  • people get out of prison, and when they get out, and their name is Edmond Dantès, they take their revenge!'

    Falsely accused of treason, the young sailor Edmond Dantès is arrested on his wedding day and imprisoned in the island fortress of the Château d'If. Having endured years of incarceration, he stages a daring and dramatic escape and sets out to discover the fabulous treasure of Monte Cristo, and to catch up with his enemies. A novel of enormous tension and excitement, The Count of Monte Cristo is also a tale of obsession and revenge. Believing himself to be an 'Angel of
    Providence', Dantès pursues his vengeance to the bitter end, only then realizing that he himself is a victim of fate.

    One of the great thrillers of all time, The Count of Monte Cristo has been adapted for film and television many times. This newly revised, unabridged translation is as unputdownable now as it was when the novel first appeared, and William Thackeray, enthralled, 'began to read Monte Cristo at six one morning and never stopped till eleven at night'.

  • Alexandre Dumas's novels are notable for their suspense and excitement, their foul deeds, hairsbreadth escapes, and glorious victories. In The Black Tulip (1850), the shortest of Dumas's most famous tales, the real hero is no Musketeer, but a flower. The novel - a deceptively simple story - is set in Holland in 1672, and weaves the historical events surrounding the brutal murder of John de Witte and his brother Cornelius into a tale of romantic love. The novel is also a
    timeless political allegory in which Dumas, drawing on the violence and crimes of history, makes his case against tyranny and puts all his energies into creating a symbol of justice and tolerance: the fateful tulipa negra.

    This new edition reprints the first, classic English translation. David Coward sets the novel in the context of its author's life, the turbulent history of the Dutch Republic, and the amazing `tulipmania' of the seventeenth century which brought wealth to some and ruin to many. - ;Alexandre Dumas's novels are notable for their suspense and excitement, their foul deeds, hairsbreadth escapes, and glorious victories.

  • Beginning just before WW1 and continuing into the postwar period, the Canadian Manufacturers' Association mounted a campaign to sell Canadian consumers on the virtues of buying "Made in Canada" goods. Not simply an appeal to patriotism, this campaign had to convince Canadian consumers of the satisfactory quality of such goods - which manufacturers had to deliver the substance of - in an increasingly sophisticated retail and marketing environment. Such an encouragement of the demand side of the producer/consumer equation is an important example of the proactive stance taken by Canadian manufacturers in the early twentieth century to improve their own viability and success. This paper examines the "Made in Canada" campaign as part of a range of business strategies that also included support for scientific industrial research, technical standardization, and vocational education, alongside more traditional anti-competitive policies. The scope of these strategies suggests that the impact of the Second Industrial Revolution was being fully felt in Canada and business leaders recognized the implications of a new political economy in which an unimaginative defence of the protective tariff was no longer adequate.

    Juste avant la Première Guerre mondiale et jusqu'à l'après-guerre, l'Association des manufacturiers canadiens a mené une campagne pour faire valoir aux consommateurs canadiens les avantages d'acheter des produits « fabriqués au Canada ». Au-delà d'un simple cri de ralliement patriotique, cette campagne devait aussi persuader les consommateurs canadiens de la qualité satisfaisante de ces biens dans un univers du détail et de la commercialisation toujours plus complexe, et les manufacturiers devaient être au rendez-vous. Ces efforts de persuasion ciblés du côté de la demande dans l'équation producteur-consommateur constituent un important exemple des mesures actives prises par les manufacturiers canadiens au début du XXe siècle pour améliorer leur viabilité et leur réussite. Le présent article replace la campagne vantant les produits « fabriqués au Canada » dans l'optique d'une série de stratégies d'affaires, qui comprennent aussi le soutien à la recherche scientifique et industrielle, la normalisation technique et la formation professionnelle, ainsi que des politiques anticoncurrentielles plus traditionnelles. La portée de ces stratégies suggère que l'incidence de la seconde révolution industrielle se faisait pleinement sentir au Canada et que les chefs d'entreprise ont eu conscience des répercussions d'une nouvelle économie politique dans laquelle la défense statique des tarifs protectionnistes ne suffisait plus.

  • 24 images explore l'influence du cinéma populaire des années 1980 sur les films d'aujourd'hui dans son numéro d'août-octobre Années 1980 - Laboratoire d'un cinéma populaire. L'objectif est de réévaluer cette période cinématographique singulière reconnue entre autres pour son obsession envers les évolutions technologiques ou la suprématie des synthétiseurs dans ses bandes-son. Il s'agit aussi de tenter de définir l'essence de cette décennie qui, comme le dit Julien Fonfrède responsable du dossier, « alternaient sans complexe le sublime et le grotesque », le divertissement et l'émotion. De plus, deux nouvelles chroniques s'ajoutent, l'une sur les séries où il est question de The Handmaid's Tale adaptée du roman de Margaret Atwood et l'autre sur les liens entre cinéma, jeux vidéos et projets interactifs qui se penche sur le projet de réalité virtuelle d'Alejandro González Iñárritu et le jeu vidéo This War of Mine. Le DVD qui accompagne chaque édition propose cette fois-ci trois films de la cinéaste américaine Jennifer Reeder.

  • This book explores the linkages between Amartya Sen's Capability Approach and participatory forms of development - especially those associated with critical pedagogy and empowerment from the bottom-up. It shows how the capability approach and the participatory movement can complement and reinforce each other helping to ensure that democratic principles are respected and become the foundation for sustainable human development. The Capability Approach provides guiding principles for protecting the transformative roots of participation (safeguarding ownership, accountability and empowerment), while participation delivers vital methods for making the Capability Approach operational. Divided into three overlapping parts that focus on concepts, methods and applications, this work draws on diverse fieldwork experiences to unpack power relations, address adaptive preferences, explore individual and collective agency, consider new partnerships for development, and develop innovative concepts.
