Les sciences face aux créationnismes (Science versus Creationism )
Guillaume Lecointre presents his book Les sciences face aux créationnismes (Science versus Creationism) published by éditions Quæ, intended for researchers.
In the video, the author answers the following questions (in French) :
- What is creationism ?
- Why is it interesting to wonder about the links between sciences and creationism ?
- What are the stakes ?
- What is the scientist contract ? What are the main differences with the creationist's one ?
The author examines the strategies of pseudo-scientific discourse ranging from denialist to philosophical creationism, which are pressuring the scientific community to participate in a “search for meaning”. It places the question of criteria for scientificness at the heart of this problem and places the challenge on scientific education.
