The Intelligence of Plants in Question

Are plants intelligent? The new anthology « L’intelligence des plantes en question » (The Intelligence of Plants in Question, published by Editions Hermann, 2020), tries to respond to the question in a transdisciplinary manner. If plants – and, by extension, nature – are intelligent, does the phenomenon of intelligence exist outside of anthropocentric views of the world?

Under the lead of editor and neuroscientist Marc-Williams Debono, this anthology includes texts by Luciano Boi, Emanuele Coccia, Marc-Williams Debono, Quentin Hiernaux, Olga Kisseleva, Anais Lelièvre, Michael Marder, Jacques Tassin, Yann Toma, and Claudia Zatta.
