In Europe he meets some amazing people and experiences an amazing number of surreal adventures. It is here that he also meets a mysterious young woman, 'Line du Petit Jour' (Line of Dawn). Jules Supervielle (1884-1960) was a French author born in Uruguay. His divided his time between Montevideo, where he was born, and Paris, where he was educated.

3 Le Messie De Dune (Dune Messiah)
Herbert, Frank
Siudmak, W.
Editions Robert Laffont France 1972
Mass Market Paperback
Good, No Jacket as Issued
12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall





BW3 - A tight, clean, sound copy in color wraps with minor overall shelf wear with some very light overall rubbing of the covers plus there is some light yellowing of the paper edges plus there is some light foxing of the front and back endpapers plus there is a used bookstore price in blue ink on the front endpaper plus there are large closed tears on the back endpaper and freepaper. Cover art by W. Siudmak. This is a French language edition of "Dune Messiah," the 2nd volume in the author's Dune series. The story of Maud'dib continues on the desert planet Arrakis. Its intricate social order and strange threatening environment are the backdrop for Maud'dib's efforts to deal with an almost unimaginable power brought about by the Bene Gesserit religious order's human breeding effrot to create a superbeing and his family's pending ascendency to the position of Emperor of the Imperium. This superbeing has come to fruition in Paul Atréides, now Paul Maud'dib, and he must now deal with his role as a sort of living god, a Messiah for the Fremen, and its implied need for his sacrifice. Paul Atréides a triomphé de ses ennemis. En douze ans de guerre sainte, ses Fremen ont conquis l'univers. Il est devenu l'empereur Maud'Dib. Presque un Dieu, puisqu'il voit l'avenir. Ses ennemis, il les connaît. Il sait quant et comment ils frapperont. Ils vont essayer de lui reprendre l'épice, qui donne la prescience, et peut-être de percer le secret de son pouvoir. Il peut déjouer leurs plans. Mais il voit plus loin encore. Il sait que tous les futurs possibles mènent au désastre. Il est hanté par la vision de sa propre mort. Et s'il n'avait le choix qu'entre plusieurs suicides? Et s'il ruinait son æuvre en matant ses ennemis? Peut-être n'y a-t-il pour le prescient pas d'autre liberté que celle du sacrifice... Frank Herbert, né États-Unis, commence à publier de la science-fiction en 1952. La diversité de ses travaux de recherches - géologie sous-marine, botanique, psychologie, ethnologie -, la variété de ses expériences professionnelles ne sont pas sans lien avec le relativisme généralisé qui s'exprime dans ses æuvres majeures: "Dune" (prix Hugo, 1966), suivi du "Messie de Dune." Écologie de Dune, religion de Dune, rapport sur les buts et motivations du Bene Gesserit, almanak en Ashraf, lexique de l'imperium, 316p. SCW10960

CC1 - A French language text trade paperback book in very good condition. A tight, clean, sound copy with minor overall shelf wear with some light creasing on the spine, some creasing on the front cover at the bottom right corner, and a small dent on the back cover at the top left corner. Depuis la Seconde Guerre mondiale, la nécessité est apparue d'une réflexion collective sur l'éthique des sciences. En 1955, le manifeste Russell-Einstein donna naissance au mouvement Pugwash, dont les << Conférences sur la science et les affaires mondiales >> ont voulu être << la conscience morale des scientifiques >>. Elles ont constitué un forum régulier, tolérant, ouvert aux savants et aux citoyens concernés, et contribué à écarter le spectre de l'apocalypse nucléaire. Elles ont bien mérité leur prix Nobel de la paix (1995). De nos jours, l'éthique des sciences, c'est d'abord la bioéthique. Les progrès de la médecine et de la biologie offrent une capacité croissante de manipulation du vivant. Le corps peut être démembré, traité comme un matériau. Le génie génétique se révèle capable de fabriquer un vivant, quasiment à façon. Aucune barrière technique ne protège plus l'intimité du corps et la dignité de la personne humaine. Il est devenu urgent de maîtriser le savoir en édifiant des bornes juridiques ou éthiques. D'autres préoccupations sous-tendent le mouvement éthique dans les sciences, qui concernent la déontologie du chercheur. Des cas d'inconduite pendables (fraude, plagiat) ont donné l'alarme quant à la possible détérioration des normes de la profession. Ils ont aussi attiré l'attention sur des << pratiques douteuses >>. Comme la plupart des grands pays, la France a mis en place divers comités d'éthique. Quel doit être leur rôle aujourd'hui? Plus concrétement comment définir une voie moyenne et raisonnable, entre deux écueils: le danger d'en faire trop (dérive << éthiquement correcte >>) et la risque de n'en faire pas assez (comité alibi, décoratif)? Sur ce sujet important, Gérard Toulouse a écrit un livre riche de réflexion et d'anecdotes, plein d'humour, qui donne un aperçu très vivant de la recherche. Il s'appuie aussi sur des documents essentials. Gérard Toulouse, physicien, directeur de recherche à l'ENS-Ulm, fut parmi les premiers membres du Comité d'éthique pour les sciences (CNRS), créé en 1994. Ses thèmes de recherche ont été variés, depuis la physique de la matière condensée jusqu'aux études du cerveau et de la cognition, et ses travaux lui ont valu une notoriéte internationale. Since the Second World War, the need has arisen for a collective reflection on the ethics of science. In 1955, the Russell-Einstein Manifesto gave birth to the Pugwash movement, whose 'Pugwash Conferences on Science and World Affairs' were begun as a way to foster 'the moral conscience of science'. These conferences established a regular forum that has been tolerant and open to scholars and concerned citizens. This organization has especially focused on reducing the danger of armed conflict and seeking solutions to global security threats. Pugwash shared the Nobel Peace Prize in 1995 for its work on nuclear disarmament. Today the issue of the ethics of science has become primarily relevant for bioethics. Advances in medicine and biology continue to offer an increasing ability to manipulate living things and the body has come to be treated as a source of spare parts. Genetic engineering is proving capable of making a living thing, almost to order. Because technical barriers no longer protect the privacy of the body and the dignity of the human person, it has became even more urgent to continue to develop and understand the legal and ethical bounds in science. Other concerns also underly the scientific ethical movement. These includes concerns over the conduct of researchers because cases of misconduct (fraud, plagiarism) have raised the alarm about the possible deterioration of standards of the profession. As a related concern, there is more attention that needs to be paid to 'questionable practices'. Like most major countries, France has implemented various ethics committees. What should be their modern role be? More concretely, how do we define a reasonable middle ground and between two dangers: the danger of doing too much (drifting towards unproductive 'political correctness') and the danger of not doing enough (alibis provided by collective work and merely 'decorative' ethical declarations)? On this important subject, Gérard Toulouse has written this book of reflection and humorous anecdotes intended to provide a lively overview of scientific research. The text also includes essential documents on the subject of scientific ethics. Gérard Toulouse, a physicist, director of research at the ENS-Ulm, was among the first members of the 'Comité d'éthique pour les sciences' (CNRS), the Ethics Committee for Science, established in 1994. His research topics have ranged from the physics of condensed matter to studies of the brain and cognition, and his work has earned international recognition. 5.5"x8.9", 240 pages.
