Summary

La decouverte scientifique et la maitrise de l'electricite ont bouleverse notre societe au meme titre que l'invention de l'ecriture alphabetique durant l'Antiquite et de l'imprimerie a caracteres mobiles au XVe siecle. Il ne s'agit pas seulement d'un phenomene naturel mis au service de l'homme par la science, mais d'un element central de l'episteme moderne : l'electricite a inspire des ecrivains et des artistes, a servi de force d'impulsion au monde de l'industrie et de l'innovation et a redefini les comportements sociaux. En explorant l'incidence de l'electricite sur le savoir, les pratiques sociales, les medias, la vie sociale et les experiences personnelles, cet ouvrage tente d'en saisir les aspects techniques et culturels dans toute leur complexite. -- The scientific discovery and mastery of electricity created as many important changes in modern society as did the invention of alphabetical writing in antiquity and movable type in the fifteenth century. It is more than a natural phenomenon that science has harnessed for human use; it is a central feature of the modern episteme. It has inspired writers and artists, propelled industry and innovation, and reshaped human social behaviour. Looking at a variety of topics including film, politics, and contemporary art, this volume explores the impact of electricity on knowledge, social practices, media, community life, and subjective experience.
