Henri-Pierre Jeudy

9,90 €
What is this “mania for banning” that invades both public and private space? What does the proliferation of prohibitions imply in our everyday life and what consequences does it have on our social ties and our individual and intimate behaviors? Do they impose a necessary standard for “living well together” or do they generate a liberating temptation? Henri-Pierre Jeudy redefines the prohibition in all its aspects, from the child who must obey censorship to environmental or public health policies. A book by anthropologist, philosopher, sociologist and poet, a precise and humorous look at the contemporary world.
