« Les qualités de vulgarisateur du professeur sont admirables : sous sa plume, des philosophes et sociologues difficiles, parfois obscurs, deviennent clairs, abordables et retrouvent toute leur pertinence. » Louis Cornellier, Le Devoir « Des questions abordées sans détour et qui se situent au cœur de notre époque. (...) Un must pour quiconque aspire à saisir le sens de notre actualité. » L’UQUAM – Titres d’ici « (...) ancien militant de gauche, et qui a d’ailleurs écrit sur sa désillusion face à la gauche, ne rejette pas la modernité pour autant. Pleinement conscient de l’immense avantage que le bien-être apporte à ceux qui en profitent, il se méfie des bêtes discours nostalgiques et simplistes prêchant le retour au passé. » Caroline Montpetit, Le Devoir « Égalité, Liberté et Raison. Voilà trois des neufs clés de la modernité dont le professeur Jean-Marc Piotte fait pour nous l’examen dans son très beau livre. » Jean-Pierre Couture, Le Monde « (...) un discours humaniste s’appuyant sur le meilleur d’autrefois pour construire celui de demain. » Jean-François Crépeau, Le Canada français (St-Jean-sur-le-Richelieu) « L’écriture, toute simple mais juste, participe à la façon pédagogique d’aborder le sujet. Au bout du compte, Les neufs clés de la modernité est un ouvrage clé sur la fragilité des valeurs contemporaines, dans une époque qui se questionne tout en se déresponsabilisant de plus en plus, et qui saisit avec justesse les contours d’un concept si souvent galvaudé. » Yohann Saint-Amour, Accès Laurentides

This book examines human rights as political battlefields, spaces that are undergoing constant changes in which political conflicts are expressed by a translation process within networks of interactions. This translation, in turn, contributes to modifying the scope and understanding of human rights. Ultimately, these battlefields express the legitimacy encounter of different versions of human rights in contemporary political practices. The volume thus challenges both the tendency to minimize the changing nature of human rights as well as the struggles emerging from the use of human rights discourses as a legitimization tool. By shifting the focus on what stakeholders do instead of solely on the origin, nature or foundations of human rights, the authors reveal that human rights are not static objects: they are constantly transformed and, as such, affect the horizon of universal rights.

Les investigations épistémologiques présentées ici correspondent à un ensemble de propositions buissonnières autour du langage dans la pensée d’Éric Weil. En scrutant la production théorique weilienne,il s’est agi d’envisager le fait du langage dans la mesure où il rapproche et différencie l’homme de l’animal et participe à la structuration existentielle de l’être humain en face de la violence, qui apparaît comme l’autre de la raison. En d’autres mots, la recherche montre que, chez Éric Weil, le plan du langage représente le milieu qui facilite la spécification anthropologique et la configurationraisonnable de l’être-homme dans le monde. Comme tel, il équivaut au sol d’émergence et d’historicisation de l’être humain. Le langage contribue à l’auto-constitution authentique de l’homme et à son inscription durable dans le monde. Il aide les hommes à s’orienter dans le temps ainsi qu’à organiser leur histoire. Il permet aussi au philosophe de surgir au plan mondain puis le conduit à se manifester comme homo theoreticus dans et au-delà de la spatialité et de la temporalité. L’originalité du livre se situe proprement dans l’élaboration d’une lecture omni-compréhensive du système weilien et dans la conception de la vocation politique du langage. L’auteur établit que la philosophie d’Éric Weil, sans correspondre à une discipline scientifique ou technique du langage contient, en tant que telle, une pensée du langage décisive et fondatrice, une pensée du langage qui comprend le sens de la violence et celui de la présence (la présence dans le temps de l’histoire en tant qu’existence dans la vision du Tout sensé).

Extrait: Notre contribution avait pour objectif d’éclairer de façon critique la réorientation intellectuelle du mouvement souverainiste depuis 2007-2008. Notre ouvrage est né d’une inquiétude face à la renaissance d’un nationalisme conservateur qui, au nom d’un passé mythifié et d’une nation surplombante et divinisée, souhaite liquider l’héritage des multiples luttes pour la liberté, l’égalité et la solidarité qui ont traversé le Québec. Contre le repli sur soi des néoconservateurs, il nous semble qu’il faille réinscrire, en bout de piste, le Québec dans les débats sur la crise économique, environnementale, politique et culturelle qui secoue le monde dont nous faisons inévitablement partie.

Major transformations in society are always accompanied by parallel transformations in systems of social communication ï¿1⁄2 what we call the media. In this book, historian Frï¿1⁄2dï¿1⁄2ric Barbier provides an important new economic, political and social analysis of the first great 'media revolution' in the West: Gutenbergï¿1⁄2s invention of the printing press in the mid fifteenth century. In great detail and with a wealth of historical evidence, Barbier charts the developments in manuscript culture in the twelfth and thirteenth centuries, and shows how the steadily increasing need for written documents initiated the processes of change which culminated with Gutenberg. The fifteenth century is presented as the 'age of start-ups' when investment and research into technologies that were new at the time, including the printing press, flourished. Tracing the developments through the sixteenth century, Barbier analyses the principal features of this first media revolution: the growth of technology, the organization of the modern literary sector, the development of surveillance and censorship and the invention of the process of 'mediatization'. He offers a rich variety of examples from cities all over Europe, as well as looking at the evolution of print media in China and Korea. This insightful re-interpretation of the Gutenberg revolution also looks beyond the specific historical context to draw connections between the advent of print in the Rhine Valley (ï¿1⁄2paper valleyï¿1⁄2) and our own modern digital revolution. It will be of great interest to students and scholars of early modern history, of literature and the media, and will appeal to anyone interested in what remains one of the greatest cultural revolutions of all time.

The accelerating interpenetration of nature and culture is the hallmark of the new "light-green" social order that has emerged in postwar France, argues Michael Bess in this penetrating new history. On one hand, a preoccupation with natural qualities and equilibrium has increasingly infused France's economic and cultural life. On the other, human activities have laid an ever more potent and pervasive touch on the environment, whether through the intrusion of agriculture, industry, and urban growth, or through the much subtler and more well-intentioned efforts of ecological management. The Light-Green Society limns sharply these trends over the last fifty years. The rise of environmentalism in the 1960s stemmed from a fervent desire to "save" wild nature-nature conceived as a qualitatively distinct domain, wholly separate from human designs and endeavors. And yet, Bess shows, after forty years of environmentalist agitation, much of it remarkably successful in achieving its aims, the old conception of nature as a "separate sphere" has become largely untenable. In the light-green society, where ecology and technological modernity continually flow together, a new hybrid vision of intermingled nature-culture has increasingly taken its place.

An astonishing novel of epic ambition, Vandal Love—winner of the prestigious Commonwealth Writers’ Prize for best first book in 2007—follows generations of a unique French-Canadian family across North America and through the twentieth century. A family curse—a genetic trick resulting from centuries of hardship—causes the Hervé children to be born either giants or runts. Book One follows the giants’ line, exploring Jude Hervé’s career as a boxer in Georgia and Louisiana in the 1960s, his escape from that brutal life alone with his baby daughter Isa, and her eventual decision to enter into a strange, chaste marriage with a much older man. Book Two traces a different kind of life entirely, as the runts of the family discover that their power lies in a kind of unifying love. François seeks the identity of his missing father for years, while his own son, Harvey, flees from modern society into spiritual quests. But none of the Hervés can abandon their longing for a place where they might find others like themselves. In assured and mystically powerful prose, Deni Y. Béchard tells a wide-ranging, spellbinding story of a family trying to create an identity in an unwelcoming landscape. Imbued throughout with a deep sensitivity to the physical world, Vandal Love is a breathtaking literary debut about the power of love to create and destroy—in our lives, and in our history.

Most of the seven million people who visit the cathedral of Notre Dame in Paris each year probably do not realize that the legendary gargoyles adorning this medieval masterpiece were not constructed until the nineteenth century. The first comprehensive history of these world-famous monsters, The Gargoyles of Notre-Dame argues that they transformed the iconic thirteenth-century cathedral into a modern monument. Michael Camille begins his long-awaited study by recounting architect Eugène Viollet-le-Duc’s ambitious restoration of the structure from 1843 to 1864, when the gargoyles were designed, sculpted by the little-known Victor Pyanet, and installed. These gargoyles, Camille contends, were not mere avatars of the Middle Ages, but rather fresh creations—symbolizing an imagined past—whose modernity lay precisely in their nostalgia. He goes on to map the critical reception and many-layered afterlives of these chimeras, notably in the works of such artists and writers as Charles Méryon, Victor Hugo, and photographer Henri Le Secq. Tracing their eventual evolution into icons of high kitsch, Camille ultimately locates the gargoyles’ place in the twentieth-century imagination, exploring interpretations by everyone from Winslow Homer to the Walt Disney Company. Lavishly illustrated with more than three hundred images of its monumental yet whimsical subjects, The Gargoyles of Notre-Dame is a must-read for historians of art and architecture and anyone whose imagination has been sparked by the lovable monsters gazing out over Paris from one of the world’s most renowned vantage points.

Montreal actor Agathe O’Reilly is the recipient of anonymous letters that have become increasingly threatening and worrisome, with their references to betrayal, punishment, and revenge. Have they to do with the traumatic events that marked her childhood in western Quebec, events she has kept secret until now? When threats turn to violence and a first victimis claimed, Agathe is at a loss as to where she should turn: To her loyal but meddling best friend? To her possessive lover, a married man and a star on Quebec’s theatre scene? To a helpful neighbour who harbours some secrets of his own? To the police? Or to her family, with whom she has had no contact for years? Just how far will the letter-writer go to exact revenge? The Third Letter, by two time Governor General’s Award-winning writer Michèle Marineau, is a love story wrapped in a mystery novel, brimming with suspense and soul.

Superbly rendered by the late John Glassco, Harvey's controversial work is presented in its true cultural and social setting. First published in 1934, this novel satirizing the bourgeois élite and the suffocating rule of the Catholic clergy created a furor in Quebec.
