Edgar Morin is a French philosopher and sociologist who is internationally recognized for his work on complexity and "complex thinking", as well as for his scientific contribution to various fields, such as media studies, politics, sociology, visual anthropology, ecology, education and biology of the system. Knowledge, ignorance, mystery is the second Morin's book that we will publish in the Janus collection.
"I live more and more with the consciousness and the feeling of the presence of the unknown in the known, the enigma in the banal, the mystery in all things and, in particular, the advances of a new ignorance in each advanced knowledge, "says Edgar Morin. Thus he undertook in this book to patrol the new territories of knowledge, where reveals an inseparable trio: knowledge, ignorance, mystery.
In his eyes, the mystery does not devalue the knowledge that leads to it. It makes us aware of the occult powers that command us and possess us, like Daimon inside and outside us. But, above all, it stimulates and strengthens the poetic feeling of existence.
