Plastir Number 13 – 12/2008


Jean-Paul GALIBERT is a philosopher and a linguist. He notably published “Socrates, a philosophy of the destitution ” (L’Harmattan, 1997) and “ Philosophic invitations in the thought of the nothing ” (Leo Scheer Publishing, 2004). He delivers us for PLASTIR an interrogation hardly conveniently on the potential previous history of the plasticity and its narrow links with the birth of the preSocratic philosophy. More exactly, the author connects Anaximene of Milet’s discovery about the captivating and ubiquitary nature of the air in the notion of plasticity. And the demonstration is attractive. The horizon is “the shape blows up some limit of the air it is the shape of the forms, the shape where all the forms occur and connect”. This conduct to the birth of a new visual plan which makes us become aware that we are prisoner of a spherical life where the perceptive illusion prevails, where the vertical and horizontal axes overlap, where the reality becomes blurred for the benefit of the world and conversely. So: “ I may go so fast as I would want: I would never collect that a movement of the world rushing to me, although only I paid attention on what I see and I add nothing of it I know “ dixit the author. Only the light passes, a blinding light, capable of drilling the world, of revealing the heavenly indefiniteness which the man dressed in Gods to forget the question. And Jean-paul Galibert to show us the ways of the metaphysics and the supreme plasticity of the air of Anaximene about which he says himself that he is “ the principle of the totality of things ”. Air shape of the space, the metamorphosis, the infinity where the man fits navigating between the opposite, putting well before the idealistic view of Platon the first milestones of a unity between science and poetry.


Eric BOIS is an astronomer theorist in the Côte d’Azur’s Observatory and doctor in celestial mechanics of the Paris’s Observatory. Member of the Scientific Society of Brussels, prize-winner of the American Foundation John Templeton, expert for numerous international scientific reviews and author of more than hundred of scientific publications, he is a professor invited in several French and foreign universities. Specialist of the rotation of celestial bodies as well as the dynamic stability of the systems of extrasolar planets, Eric Bois is the author of several relativist analytical and model theories. One of its most important realizations is the model SONYR (Spin-Orbit N-bodY Relativistic model), models of unique Solar system to the world. With this model, his researches allowed him some recent advancements in the study of the planet Mercury, notably concerning its obliquity (seat of librations) and the nature of its nucleus (fluid containing some sulphur). But besides his works of Astrodynamics and Planetology, Eric Bois’s researches extend in Astro-Epistemology, in Cosmology, in Philosophy of the Nature and in Medicine. He has thus co-founded the Episteme laboratory of the University of Bordeaux I. By an epistemology of some objects of contemporary astrophysics: the significance of dynamic chaos, the structure of physical causality or the question of the origin of the Universe, his researches contribute to the renewal of the philosophy of Nature and consequently to a resumption of Metaphysics. These fields of activity inevitably brought us closer, and Eric Bois was thus one of the founding members of the “Group of the Plasticians” which preceded PSA contributing to the development of several research projects by the GDP (see Our Preceding Activities on the website of PSA) and his papers concerning the Chaos theory. This is why it is a joy of accommodating these free remarks extracted from his work “ the universe without rest or the first gist of the movement ” published at Peter Lang in 2002, the more so as they relate to at the same time one of the attributes of plasticity (matter-form) and one of the fundamental interrogations of man. Indeed, the author wonders about the nature of the movement, the question of its presence and of its universality joining the questioning legitimates of the philosopher in front of the intelligibility of reality. Thus, it is in turn Aristote, Descartes, Kant, Laplace, Einstein or Prigogine which are questioned on the basic concept of movement leading Eric to formulate an original Transdisciplinary approach looking at “ the ontology of the movement ”. This approach, resulting from this work on dynamic chaos, the general relativity and of an epistemological thought of nature that you will briefly discover in PLASTIR invites us to reflect on chaos, the levels of reality, the essential couple matter-form, which for us forms a complex articulated by plasticity (Debono, 2008), philosophy of the nature or on the mathematics of the alive systems.


Michel DE CASO is a painter, a plastician and a member of the CIRET. Cantor of Rectoversion, he devotes himself since more than twenty years to the research, the experimentation and the teaching of Rectoversion painting, publishing many works and regularly exposing his works throughout the world. Having been challenged by the talk of the paleoarcheologist Derek Hodgson on Acheulian double-side published in the n°12 of PLASTIR, he answers him in this article in a direct and argued way. Its first interrogation comes owing to the fact that the axis of symmetry of Hodgson does not apply to the relationship between the two faces of double-side studied, but to the correspondence between the Acheulian double-side and the gold triangle, considered on only one face of the tool. After having defined the two symmetry planes as regards classic art: harmonize and mirror effect of bilateral symmetry, Michel De Caso establishes a positive criticism of the assumptions of the author as for the relationship between the golden trainagle and the harmony or between the capacity of visual perception of symmetry from the Palaeolithic one and the fact of no longer examining the tool on only one but on its two faces. He thus comes from there to show us, through photographs of double-side by Jose–Manuel Benito Álvarez the pertinent views o paradoxical symmetry and the concept of rectoversion where dimensional ambiguities of the double-side ones appear, of the double faces bored and of the continuous or discontinuous but always emotive nature of the bifacial handaxe cut by the hand of man.


Daniel-Philippe DE SUDRES is an independent researcher in cognitive neurosciences and created a new approach, the neuroconnectics, aiming, according to the proper terms of the author, to connect “what perceives and drives (perception and action), which is moved and moves (reception and production of emotions) and what “thinks” (reception/transformation of ideas – thinking – and production/creation of ideas – reflection) in us, from the point of view by the internal communication, with our environment: the “world” of the objects, the “world” of the beings and the “world” of the ideas, in terms of external communication”. This discipline resulting from cognitive neuropsychology has as an aim “the cerebral programming and the study of the possibilities of modifying it oneself” “… by neuroconnecting the various parts of the human being by itself ”, in other words preaches a more active subject, more integrated, at will handling the intentionality and which would be able to autostimulate himself in the direction of a greater autonomy, of a more close integration, a greater conscience of himself, in short an waked up subject. Once in a while does no harm, the contribution of the author will be presented in the form of an interview carried out by several actors of the economic, diplomatic or sociological world. The questions relate to the motivation, the schizoidism of man at the era of real-time information, the specialization, the becoming of the institutional governorship or of the horizontal relations in the companies. An answer prevails: to find its major intuition and its identity through the society while neuroconnecting himself with oneself and others. Thus, “… at the stage III of day before, my reality is in me and not out outside of me… and I start to develop in me a myself real…. starting to build itself according to the marking events the present moment.”
