Non-violent popular movements -- especially in Poland, East Germany and Czechoslovakia -- played a significant part in the events. How did they relate to other forms of power, and what was their effect on the shaping of the

L'embryon humain sujet de savoir, objet de passions - René FRYDMAN (audio)

Conférence du 23 janvier 2000 par René Frydman.

La maîtrise de la reproduction est centrée sur l'embryon humain.

Dans une première partie, un rappel historique permet d'exposer les concepts aboutissant à la définition de la "personne humaine". Dans une seconde

First as Tragedy, Then as Farce: The Double Death of Neoliberalism and the Idea of Communism
Slavoj Zizek argues that the neoliberalism died twice: first as a political doctrine in the tragedy of the attacks of 9/11; then its farcical collapse as an economic theory when the meltdown at the end of 2008 brought an end to the utopia of global market capitalism. Has this crisis now offered a vital opening for the left to seize the reins of politics and the state?
