Lost: (re)garder l'île

Lost: Watching (over) the island
Edited by Claire Cornillon and Sarah Hatchuel

Ce numéro ouvert, qui accueillera la recherche en marche sur Lost, explorera une philosophie immanente à la série, la fin controversée de l’œuvre, ou bien encore la tension qu’elle construit entre illusion et réalité. Les articles pourront également se focaliser sur un épisode de la série en particulier, afin de l’éclairer à travers des approches croisées.

Perfectionnisme et séries télévisées. Hommage à Stanley Cavell (1926-2018)

Perfectionism and TV series. A tribute to Stanley Cavell (1926-2018)
Edited by Philippe Corcuff and Sandra Laugier

This issue begins the exploration of some main lines of what could be a program of studies of TV series inspired by the dialogues practiced by Stanley Cavell (1926-2018) between philosophy and cinema in the perspective of both moral and radically democratic perfectionism. And it extends this program to the social sciences. Several issues are discussed, including the conceptual scope of the series, their contribution to renewed critical theories, the bumpy perfectionist paths of individuals and communities, forms of disobedience, the boundaries between human and inhuman, the contribution of series to the tradition of spiritual exercises, or other dimensions of their receptions. Different series are taken as investigation sites: American Crime,Black Mirror, Dexter, Game of Thrones, Girls, Homeland, Le Bureau des Légendes, Mad Men, Manhunt: Unabomber, Narcos, Sharp Objects, Show me a hero, The Sinner, The Walking Dead, The West Wing, Unorthodox et Westworld.

This issue has received funding from the European Research Council (ERC) under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme (grant agreement N° 834759).
