Sommaire du site en français

BOOK ONE

Discontinuity, nonlinearity, brutal changement, globality, hierarchical interaction, chaoticity, qualitative changement caraterise the dynamical phenomenon. The way of conservation, development and transformation of matter, life and society needs a dialectical philosophy.

BOOK TWO

The new understanding of the signification of atom, particle, quantic and relativistic physics, life, gentics, evolution of species and earth climate.

BOOK THREE

History is built by social revolutions rather than evolutions. Even in the ancient times, in the pharaon Egypt, the social revolution is the way of transformation of social structures.

BOOK FOUR

The most important events of contemporary history can’t be explaned without understanding of class struggle.

BOOK FIVE

What is the signification of financiarisation and globalization ? Will capitalistic system go to a new systemic crisis like 1929 ?

BOOK SIX

What politics is needed for the workers ? It is not the reformist ideology. It is the permanent revolution !

INTRODUCTION

The mode of formation and transformation of matter, of life, of man and society

I apologize for disseminating an incomplete and unfinished work, in its conception as in its drafting. However, the magnitude of the subject, the length of the work necessary to justify this text in circulation without delay. It will gradually be completed and corrected. The issue, the revolution, is not a theme so common, including in the country often described as one of the French Revolution. Since Stalinism, Maoism "and the various versions of the so-called" socialism and communism, the significance of the social revolution has been lost or has been distorted. If, for many workers, class struggles for employment or salary, they do not see themselves as oppressed class the most powerful in history, capable, at the international level, free humanity from oppression and exploitation. We should not conceive this movement of lowering of the class consciousness as a linear decline. Just that we should not interpret the movement which was, Marx to Lenin and Trotsky, or the Paris Commune of 1871 to the revolution in Russia in 1917 and in Europe in 1918-1920, as a continuous climb. The movement of history, the struggles, the class consciousness, that of the organization of the classroom, these three movements that are not similar, not following a gradual way, but experiencing sudden jumps . Now, in response to falling illusions in the social democracy (in the service of big business since the First World War), Stalinism (the main anti-Communist force since 1925), and nationalism in the Third World (venus in power since the Second World War), a new cycle appears to take shape. The illusions about capitalism are also benefits (even in the Eastern countries), and a new Anticapitalism seems being reborn in a new generation of the working class world. This does not mean that a new understanding of the world will come directly and spontaneously, as new deception may well replace them. It is very possible to give to criticism of capitalism a new form of reformism, ie rescue capitalism. The ideas of "sustainable development", alternative, "declining", "defence" of the planet are new ways to divert the class struggle by pretending that all men are responsible for the destruction caused by the large capital. New types of réformismes, nationalism, stalinismes, religious or other reactionary ideologies may appear, again diverting social movements. There will be no purely spontaneous birth of a new critical analysis of the system. And it takes place at a time when a new crisis of capitalism is on the horizon, new big sacrifices for the oppressed but also new big revolutions, ie new opportunities to end with a final the exploitation of man by man.

It is even more important to rethink (ie rebuild) that really mean socialism and the revolution in the world today. For too many years, the revolutionaries themselves down revolutions, have turned to armed struggle (guerrillas unconnected with the action of the proletariat), towards forms of protest non classistes (alternative, environmentalism), or towards forms of accommodation critical to the system (unionism, electioneering). In all this, the revolution (and primarily the destruction of the bourgeois state and the economic capital) is forgotten. The issue is not even discussed or debated publicly, either on behalf of a kind of realism (the revolution is not on the agenda), or a renunciation more open to this prospect.

In this study, revolution called the crisis situation in which the oppressed cease to follow the ideas and organizations of the ruling class, starting themselves to organize in a manner totally new and emerging, with a view to their own class interests and, above all, apply their own decisions, creating a situation of dual power brings the possibility of radical change in the course of history, to a power to the workers. This definition does not consider violence (the famous armed struggle) as the fundamental criterion, but rather highlights the radical nature of the social and political content provided by the oppressed themselves, and the rapid destruction of the real bases of the old order. In its broadest sense, scientific, we will call "revolution" any transitory in which the established order can switch qualitatively and brutally. Most importantly, we will call a revolution leading to the sudden emergence of a qualitatively new, following the turmoil and contradictions in the lower grade, also called self-organization. As a result, this process involves both the different fields of science. The policy is particularly concerned with the issue of self-organization of the proletariat. Remember the phrase used by Karl Marx: "Socialism is the work of the workers themselves." To prepare for a new government, the exploited are in need of a sense of collective organization and trust in their own forces.

This text tries to draw lessons general, philosophical, recent studies of science, natural, historical, economic, and social consequences. The scientific advances, which advance our knowledge and expertise, influence our philosophy of the world. At least, they should do so. The popular science touches a wide audience, but the philosophy of science is driven somewhat diffused. The scientific thinking has changed dramatically, even though the general public, bombarded with technical information, often ignore. The science is no longer based on fixed objects, or a fixed order, but the organisation spontaneous disorder of many interacting elements. The matter is no longer conceived as an inert mass, but as the product of a collective dynamic extraordinarily turbulent. Reversal brutal structures, the revolution is a process of construction by the organization spontaneous unrest underlying structures of new, so-called emerging. Understanding this mechanism revolutionary, which characterizes the historical phenomena, is not obvious, is not derived directly from the observation, and requires an effort of conceptualizing philosophical. The old opposition between diametrals inert material and living between life and death, between order and disorder, between destruction and construction, between chance and necessity, are now obsolete. Exceeding these old dichotomies, the new scientific philosophy recognizes the interpenetration between determinism and contingency, between law and disorder, between universality and singularity, and atomisme between vitalism, and between materialism and creation. Design dynamics, the task is tough, but the elements are provided by the sciences themselves.

Reflection on the active process of nature, the rhythms of its historical movement, carries a way of thinking that is essential, as far as science in the study of human society. The ability of the oppressed to build their power depends on their political experience, their participation, active, organized and conscious of their own struggles. A class is not just made up of men who have material interests. It is first a conscience, made chess, hopes, attempts, virtualités, ideas and potential. The mechanism for the emergence of class consciousness and functioning dynamics of matter continually transformed by the interaction between virtual and real, between destruction and construction, a permanent revolution, are the same type.

An understanding of the revolution is of vital importance to scientific thought as to political and social action. It is particularly necessary for the workers’ movement, the victim of ideologies of order and reform advocates continuity of the State. The a priori from the continuous bias between progress and abrupt change is widely spread, by scientists as well as by political and social, social democrats, associations, environmentalists, alternative forms of globalization, trade unionists or Stalinists. The idea of the centrality of the working class to radically change the course of human society is strongly opposed. The consciousness of the oppressed class depends primarily on its understanding of its capacity to transform the world. La signification de la société à construire est aujourd’hui altérée. The significance of the company building is now impaired. La révolution, incomprise, est souvent rejetée. The revolution, misunderstood, is often rejected.
