” For me, … I will be always with the most hopeful and walking part of Humanity.   “ [Lettres Intimes, Aubier Montaigne, p. 315]

In this context of the beginning of the new year, which is favourable to hope and where discussions on vaccines are often destabilizing, we propose this unique sentence that Pierre Teilhard de Chardin wrote to his friend Henri de Lubac, on August 15, 1936. Without doubt his thought can still, more than eighty years later, help us to situate ourselves in the current debates…

Event forecasts remain rare, but the pandemic, by imposing important restrictions on the face-to-face world, has the positive consequence of allowing an unprecedented expansion of the noosphere. Some events, which used to be strictly reserved to Parisian residents, are now invited everywhere without any mileage limit ! We are thus attaching to this newsletter some interesting leads gleaned from different sources. May they  enrich the partial confinement that we are currently experiencing.  

Be assured of our warmest thoughts.

Chantal Amouroux, for the Board. 


Due to health conditions, we advise you to check with the organizers of the events we are announcing here.

Michel Le Bras, a member of our association, has just published a personal book with Librinova,
Shall we get out of this together ?

Excerpts from the back cover : ” We are witnessing multiple fractures in society. The common sense disappears under the blows of sectorial claims. Individualism prevails. Before changing the world, we must first try to understand it if we want to avoid disillusionment. Where is the place of Being in relation to Having? It is up to each of us to work to continue to live together. Do liberty, equality and fraternity have a common meaning? Then, will we come out of it together? ” Liberal economics, business, political and economic governance, sustainable development, and European and global integration are among the topics addressed in this book.
