By Henri-Jean Martin

" Revenant à ma desk de travail, je m'efforce de tracer le plan du livre auquel je rêve depuis longtemps et dans lequel je pourrais proposer, en guise de bilan d'une life vouée à los angeles recherche, une réflexion sur l'histoire des tools de connaissance et des systèmes de conversation au sein de nos sociétés européennes, afin de comprendre et d'expliquer leurs évolutions et leurs mutations psychologiques (...). D'où los angeles nécessité de réfléchir sur les origines et les caractères propres de l'homme. remark l'espèce humaine s'est-elle dégagée de son environnement ? Qu'est-ce qui distingue Homo sapiens des autres vivants ? De quels tools dispose-t-il pour appréhender l'univers ? remark fonctionne sa pensée et remark s'exprime-t-elle ? Pourquoi organisa-t-il sa vie au sein de sociétés structurées et remark évoluèrent-elles à mesure que s'accumulaient ses acquis conceptuels ? remark expliquer le dynamisme qui l'incite à chercher à progresser sans cesse en de continuelles explorations ? Et d'où tient son incroyable capacité à comprendre les mécanismes de l. a. nature et à en réaliser des simulations ? " Achevée peu de temps avant l. a. disparition d'Henri-Jean Martin, cette grande synthèse, à l'érudition surprenante, s'impose comme un ultime hommage de l'historien à cet humanisme qu'il chérissait.
