A thought event. Installed in the Sorbonne, under the golden roofs of the Lyard amphitheater where the names Descartes and Pascal appear and also the monogram of the French Republic, this is how Jean-Michel Blanquer on Friday morning presented two days of the conference “After Deconstruction: Reconstructing Science and Culture”.
