Innovation has become a key word in this era of globalisation and global thinking. Can it therefore be a synonym for “creation”, whose issues are proving crucial nowadays?

Who are the players involved in creation within fields as diverse as science, art, economics, culture, law, etc.?
What are the physical, virtual or imaginary realms?
Is creation local, global, or both?
Does it affect the world and can the world be recreated?
Such questions are increasingly emerging within social science, which poses an additional question: how to consider the relationship between these disciplines and reality, whether it is based on science, art, law or something else?
In the past, artists, writers, architects, etc. gave accounts of collective life which further contributed or brought something new to social science. For example, terrorism is better understood nowadays by reading Dostoevsky or Camus and reviewing accounts by experts and other specialists within this field.
Social science often studied subjects related to science, art, literature, etc. and involved history or sociology. As such, a movement was established between artists, scientists, writers, etc. on the one hand, and social scientists on the other hand. It is interesting to consider how each was perceived by the other, from both perspectives. Finally, certain contemporary experiences operate under a co-production logic: can (re)creating the world be a joint project undertaken by artists, scientists — and social scientists?

Inaugural conference on May 18th, at 6:00 p.m.: Edgar Morin
