Et si notre civilisation s'effondrait ? Non pas dans plusieurs siècles, mais de notre vivant. Loin des prédictions Maya et autres eschatologies millénaristes, un nombre croissant d'auteurs, de scientifiques et d'institutions annoncent la fin de la civilisation industrielle telle qu'elle s'est constituée depuis plus de deux siècles. Que faut-il penser de ces sombres prédictions ? Pourquoi est-il devenu si difficile d'éviter un tel scénario ? Dans ce livre, Pablo Servigne et Raphaël Stevens décortiquent les ressorts d'un possible effondrement et proposent un tour d'horizon interdisciplinaire de ce sujet - fort inconfortable - qu'ils nomment la "collapsologie". En mettant des mots sur des intuitions partagées par beaucoup d'entre nous, ce livre redonne de l'intelligibilité aux phénomènes de "crises" que nous vivons, et surtout, redonne du sens à notre époque. Car aujourd'hui, l'utopie a changé de camp : est utopiste celui qui croit que tout peut continuer comme avant. L'effondrement est l'horizon de notre génération, c'est le début de son avenir. Qu'y aura-t-il après ? Tout cela reste à penser, à imaginer, et à vivre... Pablo Servigne est ingénieur agronome et docteur en biologie. Spécialiste des questions d'effondrement, de transition, d'agroécologie et des mécanismes de l'entraide, il est l'auteur de Nourrir l'Europe en temps de crise (Nature & Progrès, 2014). Raphaël Stevens est éco-conseiller. Expert en résilience des systèmes socioécologiques, il est cofondateur du bureau de consultance Greenloop. Postface d'Yves Cochet, ancien ministre de l'Environnement et président de l'Institut Momentum.

In Jared Diamond’s follow-up to the Pulitzer-Prize winning Guns, Germs and Steel, the author explores how climate change, the population explosion and political discord create the conditions for the collapse of civilization Environmental damage, climate change, globalization, rapid population growth, and unwise political choices were all factors in the demise of societies around the world, but some found solutions and persisted. As in Guns, Germs, and Steel, Diamond traces the fundamental pattern of catastrophe, and weaves an all-encompassing global thesis through a series of fascinating historical-cultural narratives. Collapse moves from the Polynesian cultures on Easter Island to the flourishing American civilizations of the Anasazi and the Maya and finally to the doomed Viking colony on Greenland. Similar problems face us today and have already brought disaster to Rwanda and Haiti, even as China and Australia are trying to cope in innovative ways. Despite our own society’s apparently inexhaustible wealth and unrivaled political power, ominous warning signs have begun to emerge even in ecologically robust areas like Montana. Brilliant, illuminating, and immensely absorbing, Collapse is destined to take its place as one of the essential books of our time, raising the urgent question: How can our world best avoid committing ecological suicide? From the Trade Paperback edition.

The Tears of Eros is the culmination of Georges Bataille's inquiries into the relationship between violence and the sacred. Taking up such figures as Giles de Rais, Erzebet Bathory, the Marquis de Sade, El Greco, Gustave Moreau, Andre Breton, Voodoo practitioners, and Chinese torture victims, Bataille reveals their common obsession: death. This essay, illustrated with artwork from every era, was developed out of ideas explored in Erotism: Death and Sexuality and Prehistoric Painting: Lascaux or the Birth of Art. In it Bataille examines death--the ""little death"" that follows sexual climax, the proximate death in sadomasochistic practices, and death as part of religious ritual and sacrifice. Georges Bataille was born in Billom, France, in 1897. He was a librarian by profession. Also a philosopher, novelist, and critic he was founder of the College of Sociology. In 1959, Bataille began The Tears of Eros, and it was completed in 1961, his final work. Bataille died in 1962.

What with global warming, the war on terror, extreme political polarization, an unstoppable demographic explosion and migration, anarchy and chaos are becoming parts of our world system in hitherto unprecedented ways. What to call the planetary state of emergency we are now entering--a "New World Disorder," perhaps, or "Entropic Empire"? In his latest book, the Dutch philosopher, art historian, writer and activist Lieven De Cauter suggests that an entropic empire is created by opposing forces or philosophical poles: the "state of exception" (tyranny) and the "state of nature" (anarchy). "Entropic Empire: Considerations on the Planetary State of Emergency" is part post-historical sci-fi scenario and part philosophical consideration on the eternal return of prehistory (the "state of nature"). For De Cauter, the simple but troubling question is: are we falling out of history?

“The Limits to Growth” (Meadows, 1972) generated unprecedented controversy with its predictions of the eventual collapse of the world's economies. First hailed as a great advance in science, “The Limits to Growth” was subsequently rejected and demonized. However, with many national economies now at risk and global peak oil apparently a reality, the methods, scenarios, and predictions of “The Limits to Growth” are in great need of reappraisal. In The Limits to Growth Revisited, Ugo Bardi examines both the science and the polemics surrounding this work, and in particular the reactions of economists that marginalized its methods and conclusions for more than 30 years. “The Limits to Growth” was a milestone in attempts to model the future of our society, and it is vital today for both scientists and policy makers to understand its scientific basis, current relevance, and the social and political mechanisms that led to its rejection. Bardi also addresses the all-important question of whether the methods and approaches of “The Limits to Growth” can contribute to an understanding of what happened to the global economy in the Great Recession and where we are headed from there.
