Pr. STENGERS Isabelle (externe)


Isabelle Stengers, born in 1949, teaches philosophy at the Université Libre de Bruxelles. Her interests centre on both the constructive adventure of modern sciences and the problems born from the association of this adventure with power and claims to rational authority. She is working on the crucial challenge, both political and cultural, of an active ecology that incorporates our many diverging scientific practices into a democratic and demanding environment, against both the ideal of their sovereign autonomy and their submission to social demands. She has written numerous books, among which, in English, Order out of Chaos (with I. Prigogine), A History of Chemistry (with B. Bernadette Bensaude-Vincent), Power and Invention. Situating Science, and The Invention of Modern Science.
