Cahier Michel Serres by Michel Serres, François L'Yvonnet, Frémont Christiane

By Michel Serres, François L'Yvonnet, Frémont Christiane

Le Cahier de l’Herne qui lui est consacré, qui réunit une trentaine de collaborateurs internationaux et une dizaine de textes inédits de l’auteur, vise à mettre en évidence l’originalité et l’importance d’une pensée qui fait toute sa position aux singularités, à tout ce qui semble faire «exception».
Ainsi, son goût pour les flux et les turbulences… Ainsi encore, ce dont témoigne son épistémologie, une volonté de décloisonner les savoirs, de rendre féconds les liens complexes qui unissent les lettres et les sciences, les sciences dites « molles » et les sciences dites « dures » (de Leibniz à Hergé, en passant par Jules Verne ou Auguste Comte). Il y a chez Michel Serres une sorte d’encyclopédisme dynamique et poétique. Il s’agit toujours de construire des ponts, de frayer des passages, d’interférer, de traduire et de distribuer, sans perdre de vue l’homme, cette « merveille » dont parlait Sophocle.
Avec Michel Serres, l. a. pensée se fait voyageuse.

Dans Hermès III. La traduction le chapitre « Turner traduit Carnot »39 montre comment la peinture peut exprimer par les moyens qui sont les siens les lois de la thermodynamique. Non pas analogie vague ou lointaine, ni a fortiori comparaison, mais mise au jour d’une entrexpression comme celles dont Leibniz composa son harmonie. Le peintre anglais dit la même chose que le physicien français, mais autrement. De même, les lois de l’hérédité sont à lire chez Zola40 tout autant que chez Mendel. D’ailleurs, l’attention portée par les sciences les plus modernes au détail rapproche celles-ci des arts41.

D’un côté, à l’hôtel de Nevers où est installée une antenne de l’école des hautes études en sciences sociales, baptisée centre Alexandre Koyré, un groupe pratique l’histoire érudite des sciences du passé, à travers les textes originaux ; de l’autre, rue du Four, sous la houlette de Gaston Bachelard, puis de Georges Canguilhem à l’Institut d’histoire des sciences et des techniques, intégré à la Sorbonne, on préfère l’histoire épistémologique, une histoire jugée, sanctionnée, qui méprise l’histoire érudite jugée purement descriptive7.

Avec lui, le muthos prend sur le logos une belle revanche. La Fontaine25 devient plus important que n’importe quel grand philosophe de la tradition. Et à ceux que ce mode de présentation des idées chiffonne, notre auteur répond que les Méditations métaphysiques de Descartes, unanimement considérées comme l’un des sommets de la philosophie spéculative classique, ont la forme d’un récit26. indb 28 04/08/10 18:05 Un conteur n’est pas en peine à dire sans lassitude les mêmes histoires. Serres est un penseur-récitant qui n’a pas cessé de recommencer, de reprendre inlassablement les mythes et les légendes27.
