Nanosciences et technoprophéties. Le nanomonde dans la matrice des futurs : Premier volet d'une enquête socio-informatique ... de longue durée

Abstract : A case study in sociology of controversies, applied here on the nanotechnologies : convergence of multiple sciences ; invisibility and the grey goo prophecy ; threat on freedom and the question of limits of security systems and social control ; the posthuman issue : towards a new ontology ? After the NBIC report (Converging Technologies for improving Human Performance), many authors-actors have produced discourses and argumentations defining the next future of humanity. This text analyzes the balance of power between promises of care and prophecies of doom.
