About this book

Language: French

Swathes of scientific heritage preserved today in public institutions are experiencing transformations, transfer or restructuring. Though these processes seem to impose themselves, this "urgent" need for transformation is not neutral. Within these changes to the conditions of collections, arrangement imperatives, and systems of classification, lies the threat of disorder and loss. A museum conserves, but it can also destroy. Although the collections make sense historically through the collection, its context and its display, this dimension of time is erased between the object and its documentation. Scientific implications of these changes are highlighted here across different fields - botany, paleontology, prehistory, archeology, anthropology, ethnology. The authors try to reconstruct the systems of arrangement, records and classification that have made and unmade scientific collections. The interdisciplinary angle shows the complexity of the history of collections, and thus strongly reaffirms the importance and the conservation issues of scientific heritage - part of the heritage of humanity.


Summary in French:
Des pans entiers du patrimoine scientifique conservé aujourd’hui dans des institutions publiques connaissent des transformations, transferts ou restructurations. Si ces opérations semblent s’imposer, cette "impérieuse" nécessité de transformation n’est pas neutre. Dans les mouvements entre conditions de collecte, impératifs de rangement et logiques de classement menacent le désordre et la perte. Un musée conserve, mais il peut aussi détruire. Bien que les collections s’inscrivent dans une histoire qui leur est propre entre la collecte, son contexte et leur exploitation, cette dimension du temps est comme effacée entre l’objet et sa documentation. Les conséquences scientifiques de ces transformations sont ici mises en lumière à partir de différents terrains – botanique, paléontologie, préhistoire, archéologie, anthropologie, ethnologie. Les auteurs s’attachent à reconstituer les logiques de rangements, d’écritures et de classements qui ont fait et défait les collections scientifiques. Le regard interdisciplinaire permet de restituer la complexité de l’histoire des collections, et ainsi, de réaffirmer avec vigueur l’importance et les enjeux de la conservation du patrimoine scientifique, part du patrimoine de l’humanité.
