“Can science still save the world?”

That’s the question Robin Cousin asked researchers while on residency at the University of Poitiers in 2019. Their answers revealed just what the human sciences bring to scientific research, and the importance of funding. Cousin fictionalized his experience, featuring the characters from his previous book, Des milliards de miroirs, as students.

An apocalypse-themed end-of-the-year party will see an exchange of hypothetical (but highly political) about how best to put a radical solution into practice and make a clean break with short-terminism and utilitarianism.

An ardent plea in favor of undirected research.


“At once playful and galvanizing, this fourth book from Robin Cousin, who specializes in popularizing scientific ideas through comics, will make readers want to do something instead of just waiting in despair for a foretold end.” ~ Les Inrocks
