Conference paper


Our civilisation is the first to enjoy such an immense wealth of knowledge and at the same time be able to focus it all on one major question. Our only source of unity is our ability to question. The theme chosen for this symposium ‘Progress in Science, Progress in Society’ is in line with André Malraux’s reflection. For nobody would consider making a causal link between these two types of progress without increasing the number of questions and without significantly questioning the concept of ‘progress in society’.
