Abstract
In this review I argue that Puech draws on two important currents in modern thought: the criticism of the ontological and social priority of conflict, and the rehabilitation of praxis vis-à-vis theoria. Still, his plea for a non-confrontational art of living leaves important questions unanswered. What is the problem exactly? What does exactly count as confrontational? What is non-confrontation exactly meant to solve? What is the antiposition here? And: how does this new art of living relate to the political and ethical varieties of Technology Assessment?
