About this book

Language: French

The observation of plants forms a particularly broad field that, through the ages, has brought together a multitude of protagonists, particularly explorers, naturalists, biologists, gardeners, doctors and artists. This multitude of players mark the collective imagination and today muddle the image of those who dedicate a large part of their lives to the knowledge and description of the plant world: botanists.

Botanists are passionate naturalists. Their passion is usually rooted in childhood or adolescence and is nourished throughout life. This book attempts to describe how their passion for nature and plants is built and manifested. It portrays a particular universe where aesthetic, scientific knowledge and ethics resonate. It shows that beyond their individual peculiarities, botanists form a community of practices and values.

Drawing on her intimate knowledge of the world of botanists, the author gives us a glimpse of the deep motivations of these multi-faceted characters and their world views.

Summary in French:
L’observation des plantes forme un domaine particulièrement vaste qui a réuni à travers les âges une multitude de protagonistes : explorateurs, naturalistes, biologistes, jardiniers, médecins et artistes notamment. Cette nébuleuse d’acteurs marque l’imaginaire collectif et rend aujourd’hui confuse l’image de ceux qui dédient une large partie de leur vie à la connaissance et à la description du monde végétal : les botanistes.

Les botanistes sont des naturalistes passionnés. Leur passion s’ancre généralement dans l’enfance ou l’adolescence et se nourrit tout au long de la vie. Ce livre s’attache à décrire la manière dont leur engouement pour la nature et les plantes se construit et se manifeste. Il dresse le portrait d’un univers particulier où esthétique, connaissance scientifique et éthique entrent en résonance. Il montre qu’au-delà de leurs singularités individuelles, les botanistes forment une communauté de pratiques et de valeurs.

Mettant à profit sa connaissance intime du monde des botanistes, l’auteur nous donne un aperçu des motivations profondes de ces personnages multi-facettes, ainsi que de leurs visions du monde.
