projet de recherche

Ignorance et bonheur

J'écris en ce moment un livre intitulé L'ignorance et le bonheur, qui traite de la relation entre l'innocence, la curiosité et le bonheur dans l'histoire de la pensée occidentale. Ce projet est l'aboutissement de vingt années de recherches sur les Anti-Lumières anciennes et modernes.
