Le premier Bergson Café à Tokyo

  Participants du ler juillet 2017

J'ai décidé d'ouvrir une petite réunion dans laquelle nous lisons et discutons des textes philosophiques en français, et l'ai appelé Bergson Café. Le premier café a eu lieu le 24 juin et le ler juillet à Tokyo. Dans ces deux rencontres, nous avons lu le texte de Pierre Hadot, « La philosophie comme manière de vivre », Exercices spirituelles et philosophie antique, pp. 289-304 (Albin Michel, 2002). Le résumé en japonais se trouvve sur cette page.

Translation of La nouvelle microbiologie de Pascale Cossart

I have translated another book, La nouvelle microbiologie de Pascale Cossart (Odile Jacob, 2016) since the beginning of this year. It was requested by a Japanese publisher. I finished it yesterday. Compared with Kourilsky's book, this was easier to translate, probably because the text is scientific and fact-based. I am now waiting for the proofreading process, which should come after Kourilsky's book. I think it won't start until next year, unfortunately.
