  • C'est une sortie de classe exceptionnelle, les élèves embarquent dans un sous-marin, direction : les profondeurs de l'océan ! Un petit plongeur est cramponné à son fidèle appareil photo pour tout immortaliser. De la carcasse d'une frégate corsaire à un temple grec digne du mythe de l'Atlantide, il ne rate rien du spectacle. Mais qui est donc l'ombre immense qui suit le cortège depuis son arrivée ? Une rencontre surprenante dans les abysses de l'océan qui lui (nous ?) ferait presque oublier de réémerger !

  • C'est le jour de la sortie scolaire, destination: la Lune ! La classe s'envole à bord d'un vaisseau spatial pour une journée riche en exploration. Une petite astronaute se tient à l'écart du groupe et profite de la vue pour croquer la planète Terre. Tout aairée à son dessin, elle ne se rend pas compte que ses camarades ont décollé sans elle. La voilà seule sur la Lune, mais l'est-elle vraiment?

  • John Hare has made three expeditions to the Mongolian and Chinese Gobi deserts, the first in 1993 with Russian scientists and the second and third with Chinese scientists in 1995 and 1996. The book records the amazing adventures he has experienced on those expeditions and will record details of the 30-day walk on foot in the formidable Kum Tagh sand dunes in the spring of 1997. He is the first recorded foreigner to have crossed the Gashun Gobi from north to south.
    The expeditions were primarily concerned with tracking down the mysterious wild Bactrian camel 'camelus bactrianus ferus' which lives in the heartland of the desert and is the ancestor of all domestic Bactrian stock. There are under a thousand left in the world and the wild Bactrian camel is more endangered than the giant Panda.
    This is John Hare's magnificent account of a formidable feat of modern exploration.

  • Contes et Nouvelles du Canada français devait être le premier volume d'une série de quatre ou cinq tomes sur les écrits des conteurs d'avant 1860, il sera finalement le seul à paraître. Dans une première partie est présentée la chronologie et la liste des textes en prose publiés entre 1778 et 1859 au sein du Canada français. Ce ne sont pas moins d'une centaine de récits - romans, contes, nouvelles et légendes qui sont ainsi répertoriés et qui restent pour la plupart à découvrir. Et ce sont finalement dix de ces récits (d'écrivains canadiens situant leur oeuvre au Canada) qui sont ici publiés, dont les plus anciens : Zelim (1778) et l'Iroquoise (1827), mais également l'Étranger de Philippe-Joseph Aubert de Gaspé, la Tour de Trafalgar et Louise Chawinikisique de Pierre-Georges Boucher de Boucherville, Un épisode gallo-canadien et Une entrevue d'André-Romuald Cherrier, Adolphe et Eugène d'Odile Cherrier, Faut-il le dire ! et Le Frère et la soeur de Joseph Doutre.
    Edité en 1971, l'ouvrage était devenu difficilement trouvable. En voici une nouvelle édition, entièrement recomposée, qui permettra de découvrir les prméices de la littérature d'expression française en Amérique du Nord.

  • Anglais Gods Command

    John E Hare

    This work focuses on divine command, and in particular the theory that what makes something obligatory is that God commands it, and what makes something wrong is that God commands us not to do it. Focusing on the Abrahamic faiths, eminent scholar John E. Hare explains that two experiences have had to be integrated. The first is that God tells us to do something, or not to do something. The second is that we have to work out ourselves what to do and what not to do.The difficulty has come in establishing the proper relation between them. In Christian reflection on this, two main traditions have emerged, divine command theory and natural law theory.Professor Hare successfully defends a version of divine command theory, but also shows that there is considerable overlap with some versions of natural law theory. He engages with a number of Christian theologians, particularly Karl Barth, and extends into a discussion of divine command within Judaism and Islam. The work concludes by examining recent work in evolutionary psychology, and argues that thinking of our moral obligations as produced by divine command offers us some help in seeing howa moral conscience could develop in a way that is evolutionarily stable.
