Le quotidien du chercheur


The Daily Life of the Researcher

Une chasse aux fantômes ?


Cédric Gaucherel

Author
Edition 2013

The Daily Life of the Researcher
Chasing Ghosts?

The author offers here a compendium of opinions, both frivolous and serious, on science and sometimes scientific activity as currently performed. It has three complementary sections. The first texts give a critical, yet frivolous vision of the study of the nature surrounding us. Several disciplines belonging to the broad environmental area are addressed. The second section places man in this nature; the discussions centre on thoughts linked to our relationship with nature. The third and final section scrutinises in more detail this special interface between nature and culture which is the remit of scientific research. Some aspects of the activity of researcher, usually less commented on in the literature, are recounted.
