Suffice it to claim that Granger's call for for structuralist description is not anything under the popularity that the profitable pursuit of technology calls for that its phrases and predicates decide on what we may possibly name 'natural kinds'; that's, describe sessions of things that undergo uniform nomolog­ ical kin to each other.

En 1956, l' Academie Internationale de Philosophie des Sciences couronnait, a Bruxeiles, 1'etude de M. Yolton, intitulee The Phi losophy o/Science zero/ Arthur S. Eddington, etude dont le current ouvrage est los angeles reprise. Pourquoi l. a. personne, 1'oeuvre et les idees de l'illustre physicien anglais avaient-elles ete designees a l'atten tion des candidats a ce Prix? Quels enseignements l'Academie Internationale de Philosophie des Sciences en attendait-eile? N'esperait-elle pas que le rapport de l. a. recherche philosophique a l. a. recherche scientifique pourrait en etre eclaire? M. Yolton offre a l'un des membres de son jury l'occasion de s'en expliquer a cet endroit. Je m'en vais donc le faire pour ce qui me concerne personnellement, conformement aux vues que je defends moi-meme depuis assez longtemps. los angeles imaginative and prescient du monde et de l'homme, du philosophe et celle du savant s'accordent-elles ou s'opposent-elles? Pour ma half, je ne mets pas en doute qu'il existe entre l. a. technology et l. a. philosophie une relation qu'il importe de mettre en proof, mais j'insiste en meme temps sur le fait que cette relation est ambivalente. A los angeles fois, elles les unit, elle les separe. Elle les fait journey a journey se rapprocher et s'eloigner 1'une de l'autre. l. a. technological know-how et los angeles philoso phie sont necessaires l'une a 1'autre, mais cette necessite est par fois ceile de leur alliance et parfois celle de leur antagonisme.

" L'ouvrage comporte trois events nettement délimitées par leur thème et leur méthode. l. a. première, consacrée à l. a. mémoire et aux phénomènes mnémoniques, est placée sous l'égide de los angeles phénoménologie au sens husserlien du terme. l. a. deuxième, dédiée à l'histoire, relève d'une épistémologie des sciences historiques. l. a. troisième, culminant dans une méditation sur l'oubli, s'encadre dans une herméneutique de los angeles historique des humains que nous sommes.
Mais ces trois events ne font pas trois livres. Bien que les trois mâts portent des voilures enchevêtrées mais distinctes, ils appartiennent à l. a. même embarcation, destinée à une même et certain navigation. Une problématique commune court docket en effet à travers l. a. phénoménologie de l. a. mémoire, l'épistémologie de l'histoire, l'herméneutique de l. a. historique : celle de los angeles représentation du passé.
Je reste troublé par l'inquiétant spectacle que donne le trop de mémoire ici, le trop d'oubli ailleurs, pour ne rien dire de l'influence des commémorations et des abus de mémoire - et d'oubli. L'idée d'une politique de l. a. juste mémoire est à cet égard un de mes thèmes civiques avoués. " Paul Ricœur

The publication has the looks and gear of a scholarly journey via highbrow heritage from the ancients to the current, however it is a harassed conflation of rules and ideas that doesn't come anyplace close to its aim; after all, it tells us not anything significant approximately how technology may also help us focus on the complexity and tough moral offerings of ``post-modern'' life.-- Leon H.
