Precariousness/Instability Criticism innovation, poietic, destiny

to Isabelle Cordonnier,
Economy Strategies and Defense Expert
www.criticalsecret.com Publisher & Author
Died may 2002, R.I.P.

  There would be a seminar/multidisciplinary performance emerging from the
poietical prospective on-line magazine http://www.criticalsecret.com. This
creative suggestion is to be understood from a diversified and paradoxical
point of view in so far as instability and precariousness seem to
organically organize predictable coherences, would they be still indefinite
as events, about an anthropological destiny as much as a materialist
thinking in its different temporalities and logical consequences.

If such a point of view were to take into account the idea of rupture it
could nevertheless not be confused with what modernity achieved in terms of
ruptures, through avant-gardiste lineages between the different historical
and progressist traditions, towards utopia. A homage to researchers,
intellectuals, philosophers, scientists, writers, artists, composers,
explorers of the individual and common becoming, engaged for their part by
observation or by production from a radical critical point of view, without
any consensual a priori prescription and in any diversity of place or matter
it can take place (from the most familiar to the proudest). It addresses in
particular those who contribute to the paradigmatic changes- including the
most surprising -from the most incidental and commonplace to the largest or
most consistent of the social activities. The present seminar is not meant
to be a vulgarisation project, even if it suggests a communication of the
already existing prospective progresses, for example the scientific changes
in genetics, or the evolution of political concepts, or the issue of
becoming, in particular addressing the perceptive sensitivity as well as the
listening without before-hand knowledge.

This would obviously not change in any way the personal intention and manner
nor the style of the speakers. The conceptual federation is here symbolic
and just supposes a social or transdisciplinary attention, in all cases a
metapolitical and atopical one ; so far as it is fractured and diversified
it can be understood in terms of actuality.

The meaning is cast, like a dice, and will be shared randomly, since the
participants will be autonomous in their respective interpretations, just
like the diversified image of the theme which suggests its experimental game
in being. Such can be the particularity of our proposition, how common
interferences or strong alterities that can make sense would be underlined
in the last half-day of the seminar/performance, during the roundtable
animated by scientific counsellors, the titular animators and the on-line
review being present and together will call the seminar to its end.

Special thanks to the Sociologist Henri-Pierre Jeudy and the Biologist
Jean-Jacques Kupiec for their support.
