By Cornelius Castoriadis

Revue du MAUSS [Mouvement anti-utilitariste dans les sciences sociales], notamment Alain Caillé, Serge Latouche et Jacques Dewitte, avaient souhaité débattre avec le philosophe dissident de Socialisme ou barbarie, auteur de los angeles série Les Carrefours du labyrinthe.

En ces années qui suivent los angeles fin de l’URSS et « de l’Histoire », les sujets ne manquent pas : Quelle perception de l. a. démocratie ? Qu’est-ce que l’Occident ? Pourquoi los angeles résurgence des intégrismes religieux ? Qu’est-ce que l’universalisme ? Qu’est-ce que le marché ? Quelle est cette forme que prend le capitalisme ? Quels sont les paradoxes du relativisme culturel ?

En posant ces questions qui balisent aujourd’hui encore le champ intellectuel français, Cornelius Castoriadis enregistrait et décrivait l’effondrement que connaît l’Occident. Avec los angeles vivacité et l. a. grande clarté de son esprit, il diagnostiquait tous les maux qui se sont aujourd’hui aggravés.
