Pierre MontebelloMétaphysiques cosmomorphes, La fin du monde humain
The end of the human world does not mean the end of man, but the withdrawal from the central place that man occupied within the body of knowledge. More than ever, taking into account our relationship to Earth and the Cosmos has become necessary. In many fields (anthropology, sociology, aesthetics, law, politics, etc.) cosmomorphic views replace the old anthropomorphic patterns. Man must think of himself within worlds infinitely larger and more complex than himself. We have entered a new geo-cosmic period that moves man out of his world. More than existence in his world, it is his consistency in other worlds that is at stake. Our new problems are consistency problems. What are the aesthetic, political, ontological relationships that enable us to think of man’s relationship to other beings? What new status comes to man when he takes into account the earthly relations on which he depends, if he is given the meaning of the Earth and the Cosmos? How can we redistribute on the nonhuman a dignity of being without which man himself will eventually disappear?
