Reviews

For this great French philosopher, the financial crisis is but a superficial fault line in the Humanity earthquake. He demonstrates this in Le Temps des Crises, a manifesto that humbly wishes to save the planet. * Trends-Tendances *
The book does not hand deliver miracle cures, but many paths for reflecting are laid out in Le Temps des Crises, a (small) book that one can devour and easily digest. I must add that to see an 80 year old man keep his eyes wide open on the world around him with such clarify and perspicacity is admirable. * Petit Journal *
Michel Serres is a modern sage who opens up skills, knowledge, and responsibilities. Trained in science and philosophy, his lucid enthusiasm believes that humankind can transform itself with the help of Earth as a new partner. * L'Echo *
