Nonino Prize “To a Master of our Time” 2014

Michel Serres

A humanist in the deepest sense of the word. His thought, often poetic, ranges in all the fields of knowledge; today his philosophical attention is devoted with love and respect to the illusions and hopes of the new generations.

Admirable for the dictates of the Prize his book of 1990, Le Contrat naturel, an act of wise love that invites us to respect both the strength and the weakness of a planet we are injuring.

The prize is delivered by Edgar Morin.
