G. Faure, L. Temple, F. Goulet, Y. Chiffoleau, J. Touzard

Paroles de chercheurs

The talk of scientists

Environment and interdisciplinarity


É. Brun , J. Ponge , J. Lefeuvre

Edition 2018

The mode of operation of institutional research plays a decisive role. We must still think a demand of research in tune with what scientists are expecting, particularly in the evaluation and exploitation of their results. The book gives a large part to the talk of scientists, which we gathered and analysed. It opens the way to better understand the conditions under which interdisciplinary research in environment (climate, biodiversity, energy, pollution ...) can succeed. It also demonstrates that there can be no success of an interdisciplinary project without compatibility and complementarity of the postures of the actors involved. It interests the scientists involved in interdisciplinary projects, who will find material to put into perspective their activity, research managers, territorial managers, politicians, NGOs, students, young researchers, who will discover testimonies of precursors impassioned by the interdisciplinary adventure.

L'histoire de l'Inra, entre science et politique

The history of INRA – science and politics


E. Valceschini, P. Cornu, O. Maeght-Bournay

Edition 2018

Set up during the food crisis in the aftermath of the Second World War, France's National Institute for Agricultural Research (INRA) was founded on the notion that public scientific research into the management of life in all its multifarious forms would be of major importance for rebuilding France’s position in the world. This book, based on original documentation and testimonies of the main protagonists, explores the 70 years of the institute’s life, focusing on the interactions between science and politics.

En finir avec les idées reçues sur la vulgarisation scientifique

Enough said about the perceived ideas on scientific extension


N. Beck , M. Vidard

Edition 2017

Researchers often have perceived ideas on scientific culture, which is apparently not especially useful and wastes their time. But what if the opposite was true? The author suggests that scientists familiarise themselves with the scientific extension concepts and tools to avoid envisaging their research further without discussion moments with society.

A third way between the State and the market

Discussion with Elinor Ostrom

It is an entire critique of conventional economic theories that is expressed and a renewal of social sciences thinking that is taking place. Elinor Ostrom developed an alternative path to the State and the market in her work and experiences; this targeted desirable trajectories for the social and ecological systems.

Penser l'éventuel

Think of the possibilities

Here comes the downside of working in science


N. Bouleau

Edition 2017

Interpretations have long been removed from modern science as they were seen as beliefs. Instead, deductions and generalisations have taken their place. Yet, as in any science form, there are concerns and worries, therefore leading to interpretations. According to Nicolas Bouleau, we need to have a more interpretative approach to the context we’re living in. By expanding upon Hans Jonas’ vision and Lacan’s theses on knowledge, this essay takes another look at the environment using a full-blown scientific approach.
