Du principe de précaution à la Philosophie de la précaution :

Abstract : The precautionary principle is much criticised ; it is mainly viewed as leading to abstention. I show that, on the contrary, it leads to action. To this end, I have focused on action and shown that "true action" is open to reflection and deliberation ; it requires, as Aristotle has shown so aptly, prudence. But the environnment of action has undergone considerable change since the days of Aristotle : this world of ours is an uncertain, complex and fragil one. What are we to do then ? I show that we must implement "new prudence", i.e. precaution. The precautionary principle is the first step on the way of this "mutation", and what we need is thorough "conversion" from the "ideology of progress" to a "philosophy of precaution". The second part of my dissertation aims at defining this philosophy which involves : a way of thinking ("broadened" rationality), a relationship to nature (based on association rather than conquest), an ethics, and, at last, a new conception of action.
