Preface of Jean GAGNEPAIN
This work addresses all those who, trying to understand their period, feel that it became necessary, otherwise urgent, to change problems, to elaborate new abstract systems, to try new models of the human rationality.
His comment is double. He tries to create the way we can, from the anthropological model elaborated for more than forty years by Jean Gagnepain, lead a coherent analysis of the problems of time (the unemployment, the immigration, the transformations in the sociopolitical and ethical domains, etc.,); he gives at the same time as objective to introduce the reader to the theory said ” about the mediation “, expression which means that all which constitutes the man as it is rational – that is as it is an animal different from the others – must be considered not ” as immédiale datum ” (noticeable by the intuition or the empirical observation), but as mediatized by a dialectical process of abstraction, all the effort of Jean Gagnepain’s anthropology of which is to update the hidden contradiction (or implicit).
In this account, it is the new glasses on which the reader is invited to put shoes, to perceive not so much what the man made, makes or will make, but what makes man.
