Keywords: Risk, Security, Modernization
Risk is one of the key concepts of the contemporary academic debate in modern society. It determines the way we deal with the chances and insecurities generated by modernization and technological innovation. Eric Landowski, one of the main scholars of the Ecole de Paris semiotic center and founder of the Socio-semiotic approach, has dedicated his thirty-yearold research to elaborate a methodology to analyze social and political discourse, to describe the relationship we build with the other, to observe the affective and passional dimension of signification. In his last essay, Les relations risquées, he faces the role played by risk in everyday interactions. Interviewed by «Equilibri», Eric Landowski explains his innovative theory of risk and offers an original analysis of the Siryan crisis.
