En 1979, Jean-Francois Lyotard a articule la condition postmoderne, annoncant la fin de la modernite. Mais la modernite nous tient encore et se reinvente dans des nouvelles periodisations. Il nous incombe de reprendre la reflexion sur ce paradigme a la fois historique, culturel et social, et ceci, a partir de notre condition de " puines " de la modernite. Tel est le programme de reflexion de cet ouvrage collectif qui privilegie une approche interdisciplinaire et internationale. In 1979, Jean-Francois Lyotard sketched out the postmodern condition, announcing the demise of modernity. However, modernity perseveres, reinventing itself within shifting temporal contexts. As such, it is particularly relevant for us, as 'latecomers', to reflect on this historical, cultural and social paradigm. This is the task undertaken by this interdisciplinary and international volume.
