Conferences :

During the year I participated in eight conferences related to my research on multiculturalism and on political violence which took place in Italy, Japan, China and France.

I gave three conferences in different cities in Italy: "Génocide et mimétisme", Université degli Studii di Parma, Parma; "Espace Politique et Espace Sacrificiel", Universita degli Studii di Messina, Messina; "The Territory as a figure of Political Space" Universita Cattolica di Milano, Milano; two in Japan "Multiculturalism in Canada", Konan University, Kobe and "Between Friends and Enemies", Kyoto University, Kyoto; and finally one in China and one in France: "Crimes against humanity" Tsinghua University, Beijing, China and "Terrorisme et anthropologie", at the École Normale Supérieure, Paris, France.

Together with Gotoh sensei we organized a two days international conference on the theme "Social Justice and Multiculturalism" with 13 participants from five different countries, including two of our doctoral students.

My main domains of research have been philosophy of science, ethics and political philosophy. My goal in pursuing research in these two domains simultaneously rests on the belief that questions concerning the common good require us to understand science, a force that has shaped and that promises to transform more and more the social and natural world. At the same time as I lead this historical and conceptual research into the theoretical and social foundations of modern science and of the modern world I endeavored to keep abreast of current political issues and debates. As a consequence violence and emotions two issues which are located at the interface of science (especially biology, but also anthropology) and politics have occupied an important place in my research activity. The main results that I have obtained to this date can be grouped into three categories: the foundations of economics, the theory of emotions and the history of science and philosophy. In L'Enfer des choses (1979) J.-P. Dupuy and I argued that modern market economy also plays a fundamental role in protection against social violence, a role somewhat similar to that played by the Sacred in traditional societies. In Emotions (1995) I proposed that emotions are fundamentally a means of intra-specific coordination that constitute the central element in the social bond and that they should be seen as expressive signals rather than as internal subjective states. In recent articles I have enquired into the consequences of this approach for our theories of moral sentiments. Finally in various articles on the history of philosophy (Hobbes) and of psychiatry (Pinel) as well as in articles on the concept of exchange and the importance of deception I have argued in favor of a social conception of rationality. My central claim has been that the subjective conception of rationality that has dominated reflection in the Occident has lead to insuperable difficulties, both practical and theoretical. Beyond the variety of interests that characterizes my research its main thrust may be described as an extension of the public domain. I have tried to show that central aspects of agency, like reason or emotions, are not really private and subjective but fundamentally public and inter-subjective and enquired into the consequences of this understanding of persons for our political and moral life.


My career has been rather international from the beginning. In 1982 after finishing my Master's degree in France I became with Jean-Pierre Dupuy and Jean-Marie Domenach founding member of the Centre d'epistemologie appliquée (CREA) of the Ecole Polytechnique (France) where I remained until 1984. From 1984 to 1987 I did my Ph.D at the University of Waterloo (Canada) and in 1987-1988 I was back in France doing post-doctoral studies at the CREA. I was hired by the Universite du Quebec a Montreal in 1988 where I remained until 2003. I became full professor in 1995 and was twice director of graduate studies. During that period I received funding from diverse research agencies in Canada and Europe totalizing over 600,000$ CND and was visiting professor in France (Ecole Polytechnique and Universite d'Aix-en-Provence), Austria (University of Innsbruck) and Japan (Kyoto University). In 2003 I was hired by Ritsumeikan University in the Graduate School of Core Ethics and Frontier Sciences.
