Bonjour à tous, chercheur indépendant, parlant principalement en français et en chinois, mais aussi en anglais. Je m'intéresse aux questions qui touchent à la modernité, ses origines, sa construction et ses conséquences. J'ai vécu 3 ans à Taiwan pour me perfectionner en langue. Ce séjour m'a permit, au contact de taiwanais et d'autres ressortissants venu de toute l'Asie orientale, d'observer les conséquences de la modernité sur la société et les mentalités en extrême orient.

J'ai eu la chance de collaborer avec Jérôme Maucourant et Sebastien Plociniczak pour un petit livre introductif à la pensée de Karl Polanyi "Karl Polanyi, et l'imaginaire économique" chez Le passager clandestin.


Hello everyone, independent researcher, speaking mainly in French and Chinese, but also in English. I am interested in questions that touch on modernity, its origins, its construction and its consequences. I lived in Taiwan for 3 years to improve my language skills. This stay allowed me, in contact with Taiwanese and other nationals from all over East Asia, to observe the consequences of modernity on society and mentalities in the Far East.

I had the chance to collaborate with Jérôme Maucourant and Sebastien Plociniczak for a small introductory book to the thought of Karl Polanyi "Karl Polanyi, and the economic imagination" in Le passager clandestin
