  1. Dossier : Le Groupe des Dix, des Précurseurs de l'Interdisciplinarité – Physics, Philosophy and Poetics at the End of the Groupe des Dix: Edgar Morin and Michel Serres on the Nature of Nature.Henry Dicks - 2019 - Natures Sciences Sociétés 27 (2):169-177.
    This article argues that by the time of the Groupe des Dix’s dissolution in 1976, at least some of its members had departed significantly from the intellectual framework inherited from America’s Cybernetics Group. Focusing on two key publications of 1977, Edgar Morin’s La méthode, tome 1 : la nature de la nature and Michel Serres’s La naissance de la physique dans le texte de Lucrèce. Fleuves et turbulences, I show how the group’s two most philosophically oriented thinkers both broke with (...)

Drawing on discussions of the principle of Nature as measure put forward by Benyus and Jackson, while at the same time situating these discussions in relation to contemporary debates in the philosophy of biomimicry : 364–387, 2011; (...)

  • The Philosophy of Biomimicry.Henry Dicks - 2016 - Philosophy and Technology 29 (3):223-243.
    The philosophy of biomimicry, I argue, consists of four main areas of inquiry. The first, which has already been explored by Freya Mathews, concerns the “deep” question of what Nature ultimately is. The second, third, and fourth areas correspond to the three basic principles of biomimicry as laid out by Janine Benyus. “Nature as model” is the poetic principle of biomimicry, for it tells us how it is that things are to be “brought forth”. “Nature as measure” is the ethical (...)
