    L'idée de Progrès
     
    Considéré comme outil principal d'orientation dans la complexité du monde, le concept de progrès a accompagné les grands moments de l'histoire. Il traverse et bouscule les héritages et les traditions, entraînant une grande variété de processus d'évolution ainsi que des résistances face au changement.Relayé par un développement des technologies de pointe, une accélération des avancées scientifiques et techniques, le culte de la nouveauté et du progrès fait l'objet, ces dernières décennies, d'une prise de conscience accrue des conséquences possibles qui en résultent.À partir de documents authentiques de toute nature, contemporains ou antérieurs, il convient de donner aux élèves des éléments de contextualisation qui leur permettent d'établir des relations pour mieux appréhender les enjeux relatifs à l'idée de progrès.Cette notion permet notamment d'aborder :- les effets du progrès sur le fonctionnement des sociétés (nouvelles libertés, nouvelles contraintes et nouvelles aliénations) ;- l'impact sur les codes de la communication (évolution des langues et langages) ;- l'éthique du progrès et la responsabilité ;- la vision diachronique des arts et des techniques ;- la notion de modernité et d'avant-garde dans les arts ;
    - l'illusion du progrès, les utopies.

    "The idea of progress basically consists in believing that the world can become better in terms of art, science, technology, liberty and quality of life and has shaped most of Western civilisation's vision of history . Progress implies change, some evolution from an old order with old traditions to a new order which is not necessarily embraced by all . It's at the heart of a heated debate between those who approve of these changes and those who resist and criticize them in the name of tradition . As the rythm of progress seems to have accelerated these last few decades with an ever faster increase of major technological and scientific breakthroughs, the cult of novelty and progress is now being questioned . Indeed, a growing number of people voice their concern about the ethical, social and environmental consequences of such development and about the excesses of today's consumer society ." (MISSIONS Tale)

     IDEA OF PROGRESS:

    • Technological progress : new technologies and communication tools, the Internet, domotics, CCTV, the cinema (special effects 3D), transports....
    • Medical progress : vaccines, organ transplants, struggle against AIDS and cancer, plastic surgery, in-vitro fertilization, cloning....
    • Scientific progress : space travels, environment....
    • Social and political progress : equality, parity, liberty, women's rights, gays' rights, quality of life, family, fighting poverty, protecting the environment, becoming citizens of the world aware of global concerns..
    • Economic progress: consumption....
    • Art, literature, cinema : culture and knowledge ...

    For starters....

    About Ronald Wright's  Essay : A Short History of Progress.   (Source : Wikipedia)

    The first chapter, "Gauguin’s Questions", poses the questions that provide a framework for the book. Referring to Paul Gauguin's painting of the same name the questions are: Where do we come from? What are we? Where are we going? Wright defines progress using the Victorian terms "the assumption that a pattern of change exists in the history of mankind...that it consists of irreversible changes in one direction only, and that this direction is towards improvement".

    This is only  one of the definitions of progress, but it may be a starting-point.
