Morin’s work does not come from an attempt to escape life for an ivory tower, or to control it through intricate theoretical frameworks and maps, but from an effort to immerse himself in it more deeply, and to provide the sciences with tools to account more adequately for the lived complexity of life, and indeed to assist the reader in that process of immersion. Morin characterizes his later work on Complex Thought as an attempt to develop a method that does not “mutilate,” that does not fragment and abstract, that does not do violence to life, that is not unidimensional, anemic, antiseptic, homogenized pars pro toto.
