Session 2. The neoliberal revolution’s impact on science and technology. The trap of increasing standardization.

vendredi 24 avril 2015

The morning presentation is based on a paper of mine and its power point.

From science and technology to research and innovation.

What is neoliberalism ? What happened ? How to explain this tsunami ?

It started in the late 1970s.

How is it related to the systemic crisis, which erupted in 2007-2008 ?

Science and technology were and are supposed to overcome the crisis ? Are we beyond neoliberalism ?

Competitiveness : a norm and its long-term consequences.

Concepts and issues

The Silicon Valley phenomenon : norm or singularity ?

Documents will be added in case of strong interest by participants.

What “innovation” means in Schumpeter’s chapter 7 ?

What is “knowledge society”, “high added-value society” ?

Comparing the case of Japan, of the US and Germany’s high tech strategy.

A recent issue of the magazine Der Spiegel (February 2015) developed a strong criticism of Silicon Valley. What do you think ?
