Edgar Morin has colorful memories of many of the events that we only know from archival images. He was born in a world decimated by the Spanish flu and lived consciously and involved the invasion of France by Nazi troops in 1940, the Holocaust, the leaving of the Iron Curtain, the dawn of the European Union, the countercultural movement of May 1968, the beginnings of awareness of the climate crisis and globalization, the War Cold, the conflicts in the Middle East, the dissolution of the communist bloc, transitions, migrations, 11/09, terrorism, the Covid-19 pandemic, commenting on all of them warmly as a sociologist and public intellectual.


His book is the confession of a man who, after going through almost all the crises of the 20th century, lost his faith in the European project. But who, at the age of 101, opens her eyes every morning with the belief that beauty can still save the world. A true child of recent history, Edgar Morin tells us about love, war, philosophy and mistakes, about readings, friendships, ideas and obsessions, about the unforeseen and uncertainty, but above all about the qualities of an existence constantly unfolding under the sign of doubt.
