For a City That Is Desirable Once Again Cities are our future: what can be done so they will ultimately be desirable again?
Should we leave cities? The subject is very timely, and this book, which argues that we shouldn’t, deals with it intelligently, and without being overly-technical, which is rather rare in the realm of urbanism.
A stimulating text, powerful ideas, a limited number of figures, diagrams reserved for more technical elements: here one finds all the ingredients for a formula that has already marked the success of the Artus-Virard duo!
As victims of the pleasure principle and of immediate gratification, how can we overcome our reptilian brain? By relearning how to wait and to think.
The tale of the great advances of the last half-century up to the discovery of extrasolar planets.
Why governments want to regain the upper hand over globalization
Momo Sapiens, or the brain caught in flagrante delicto of irrationality
A subject that arouses very broad interest, approached here without the usual esoteric or spiritualist connotations, backed by the most recent advances in the neurosciences, and with very illuminating clinical cases.
Very accessible and enlightening historiological analyses of the present time (Nazi violence, war suicides, emergencies).
A precious help to help you live in a peaceful way with those with whom you are brought to work.
An incisive and informed assessment of the complicated relationships between women and the digital world, accompanied by strong measures and precise solutions to put an end to the sub-feminization of this still very macho sector.
The reconfigurations around education probably offer the most relevant angle of observation for understanding contemporary societies, and to decipher the popular resentment against the world of the educated elite.
The delicate issue of choosing to die is raised, explained, and critiqued. A generous book with lively prose, including many anecdotal stories.
From the body to language, including the climate, culture, and, of course, the family, an astute description of the way in which our different environments (“ecology” in the broadest sense of the term) determine, from childhood, the person we are to become.
An original approach, far from the usual questioning that, too often, makes do with mono-causal explanations, which are necessarily over-simplified.
