- Edgar Morin

French sociologist. He studied in the Sorbonne, where he became affiliated to the French Communist Party. He participates in the French resistance during the Second World War where he knew François Mitterrand. After France was liberated, he participated in the occupation of Germany and wrote "The year zero of Germany" where he described the situation of the German people. After 1949 he moved away from the French Communist Party, and he was expelled shortly after.

He entered to the French National Center of Scientific Research (CNRS) where he is going to conduct a multidisciplinary survey in a locality of Brittany, published under the title of Plozavet. This one is supposed to be one of the first essays of ethnology on the contemporary French society. Some years of reflection brought him to developing an innovating thought based on the complexity, multidimensionality of nature, including the human nature, and pluridisciplinarity of science. Later he became Honorary Research Manager in the CNRS. He founded and he directs the Association for the Complex Thought (APC)

He has been member of the Orientation Group of the review "Transversales Sciences-Culture" and in the Alliance he participated in the World Citizens’ Assembly (Lille, France, 2001)
