« Avec des si, on pourrait changer l’avenir » (“With Ifs, We Could Change the Future")

by Vinciane Despret

Participant(s)  Vinciane Despret

Based on a concrete experiment, such as the construction of houses using mycelium, could we conduct a thought experiment? What if we shifted from living inside of materials to cohabiting with other beings who take us in and are, in a way, our permanent guests? Can we imagine, for example, psychology and sociology taking into account the intrusion of new actors into what constitutes our intimacy? What if we used fiction to explore these questions? Fiction that opens up the imagination, and prepares us to, in the words of Deleuze and Guattari, diagnose - that is to say, learn to feel - futures in each passing present.
