Call for donations -

As the dead add up and the economy collapses, my foundation is helping to measure the unprecedented crisis by donating to the Belgian Red Cross. I encourage you to do the same. Nathalie Guiot


POSTPONED: The “bibliothèque idéale”of Mark Alizart

The Fondation Thalie invites individuals to come and talk about their relationships with literature and to propose their ideal bibliography through five titles, which will feed the Foundation library to make it a shared library, both timeless yet reflective of the current times.

In his latest essay, Le coup d’État climatique (PUF), Mark Alizart advances his thesis that front political agendas conceal a process which favors some economic, political and social players. He thus calls to think about the conditions of a political revolution likely to go against what he calls “carbofascism”

His “bibliothèque idéale”:
Les Écrits Réformateurs by Martin Luther (ed. Flammarion)
La Phénoménologie de l’Esprit by GWF Hegel (ed. Folio essais)
Le Manifeste Cyborg by Donna Haraway (ed. Exils essais)
La Nouvelle Alliance by Ilya Prigogine et Isabelle Stengers (ed. Folio essais)
L’économique et Le Vivant by René Passet (ed. Economica)
