Chaos et complexité : comment appliquer à l’éthique humaine la rationalité des sciences contemporaines ?- (Maxime Rovère / Seminar / LPT). – 10/11/2022

10 November 2022; 10h00 - 12h00

Maxime Rovère (IHRIM, Lyon)


While physics has undergone intense upheavals throughout the 20th century, the way philosophers think of human action seems to rely on notions (responsibility, freedom, etc.) most of which do not take into account the new tools of reason. On the contrary, the most common discourses on human actions and emotions have been won over by a globally psychological and individualizing approach. But what happens to the categories of “hypersensitive”, “narcissistic” or “psychorigid” in the face of the principle of sensitivity to initial conditions? Can an ethics derived from chaos theory shed more light on moral questions, or is it nothing more than a metaphorical use of concepts? Can thinking of randomness contribute to transforming our conception of ethics? What happens to concepts such as identity and self-transformation in the face of complexity methods? This presentation will test scientific reflections on the hypotheses formulated over the past five years, with the aim of formulating an “interactional” ethics whose primary element is not the indivisible human persona, but the interference between loops of interactions.
