Et si le mythe de la voiture individuelle était dépassé ?

Un documentaire de 30 minutes sur une critique de la bagnole à travers les travaux d’André Gorz et Ivan Illich et les tentatives d’émancipation de mes proches.  Images d’archives, entretiens, portraits et extraits de films composent ce documentaire que j’ai voulu militant. On y parle du travail, des villes, du stop, du covoit, de la vie en fourgon, du voyage à pied, du temps et de la liberté.

Another example, is the Islamic tradition of the « halaqa » in producing knowledge and as a research and academic methodology. A form or method that existed in the Islamic Spanish era, and that no longer exists today in the academic world.

A definition according to Quora: « Its a systematic destruction of any indigenous knowledge base. Any knowledge which doesn’t converge with the perpetrator’s knowledge system. It doesn’t believe in fusion or exchange of knowledge but complete disregard of the other’s knowledge. »
