Peu de philosophes contemporains choisissent de faire vivre leurs outils opinions grâce au terreau d'une organization, d'un collectif. C'est le cas de Bernard Stiegler, qui a fondé Ars Industrialis en 2005.

Depuis, les travaux et contributions fleurissent (de l'économiste André Gréau au comédien Robin Renucci, en passant par les spécialistes des electronic studies), et Ars Industrialis franchit un cap en s'associant à des collectivités locales (Nantes) ou en nouant des partenariats internationaux (Grande-Bretagne, Allemagne). Cet ouvrage fournit une synthèse de tous ces travaux en proposant un vocabulaire philosophique à los angeles fois ambitieux et obtainable. Qu'est-ce le advertising and marketing - le psychopouvoir - et pourquoi est-il un des risks majeurs de notre époque ? En quoi los angeles method influence-t-elle des fonctions aussi capitales que l. a. mémoire ou l'écriture ? Quelle nouvelle imaginative and prescient de l'éducation devons-nous mettre à jour depuis l'avènement du numérique ? Que sont l. a. bêtise et l'intelligence ? remark aider l. a. transformation de citoyens passifs et débordés en amateurs, acteurs et membres d'une communauté de goûts et de savoirs ? Faire recognition suggest, dans ces courts essais-définitions, le manifeste d'une époque charnière qui voit définitivement s'éloigner le monde ancien, tout en souhaitant mettre les outils de l'extrême contemporain au carrier d'un nouvel humanisme.
