“The night is the model for our knowledge, not the day. We enter a classroom, we enter a museum like entering a cavern. The cavern is the place of knowledge…Plato was wrong, to see truth as a sun is a rather fascist idea. There is not just one truth, but billions of truths, like so many stars”.

From a short interview with Michel Serres about his new book YEUX (“eyes”).
