Sedimentological and Morpho-Bathymetric Maps of the Bay of Morlaix and its Region


A. Ehrhold

Life Under Ice

Life Under Ice

An Oasis at the South Pole


P. Tréguer, L. Chauvaud, E. Amice, L. Ballesta

Edition 2013

How can scientists participate in the controversies raised by certain technical developments? By injecting a literary sensitivity into this participation. This is what this work argues. Through illustrations like a poem by Henri Michaux or a statement by a GMO crop destruction campaigner, Yves Citton investigates how scientists can take part in public and civil debates and help to move away from the confrontation of disciplines, fields and opinions.
