Tribute to John Stewart
As we sent issue #73 to press, we learned of the passing of
on January 31, 2021
The story of John and Intellectica goes back to the year 1993. We will miss his intelligence, immense knowledge, humor and kindness. Our thoughts are with his family, friends, and colleagues.
A tribute to him will be paid in a forthcoming publication: issue #76 to be published in late 2021 will consist of texts discussing his research work. The call for papers will open in September.
A seminar "Life and Cognition. A Tribute to John Stewart (1941-2021)" was organized by the CRED team of the UTC COSTECH, most of whose lectures are available here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC98U3FjeMg-scD6zYa3d9Jg/videos
Video interview of two members of Intellectica's EB
A filmed interview of two members of the editorial board of Intellectica has been made by Rémi Léger. The two members are:
- Magalie Ollagnier-Beldame, CNRS permanent researcher at UMR ICAR,
- Alain Mille, emeritus professor at Université Lyon 1, and former chief editor of Intellectica.
Both tell us about how they learned about the existence of Intellectica, what they especially like in the journal, which is their favorite issue of Intellectica, how they define cognition, why they think it was particularly relevant to make a new issue about Alan Turing (issue #72 published during the Winter 2020), and why being interested in embodied cognitioon (issue #74 published during the Summer 2021). See the video:

Tribute to Martin Fortier-Davy
Our colleague Martin Fortier-Davy passed away on April 11, 2020. He was not 30 years old. Martin was a member of the Philosophy Department of the Graduate School of Social Sciences (EHESS), the Department of Cognitive Sciences at the Jean Nicod Institute (École Normale Supérieure, Paris) and the Anthropology section of Stanford University. After two master's degrees at EHESS, one in philosophy and the other in anthropology, he was about to defend his PhD in cognitive sciences and then move to the University of Berkeley for a postdoc fellowship.
Portrait of Martin Fortier-Davy extracted from his personal site
Martin joined the Editorial Board of Intellectica on June 26, 2016. His dynamism, his good communication spirit and his flawless "presence" (in person or at a distance) will be sorely missed on the editorial board. Despite the illness, he always forced himself to respond to the requests of the editorial board, always carrying out the expert appraisal of the articles on time, with remarkable seriousness and precision. He always thought of thanking the editor for the documents transmitted, making his physical absence almost transparent for us. His insatiable scientific curiosity allowed us to discover new fields and interesting authors and reviewers for the journal, who greatly contributed to enriching us as well as our readership. For that, we can never thank him enough.
From his entry into the editorial board, he coordinated a thematic volume (#67 of Intellectica) with Guillaume Dumas and Juan C. González (Dumas, Fortier & González, 2017). His seriousness, his enthusiasm and his great availability greatly facilitated the management of this issue by Alain Mille, then editor-in-chief of Intellectica. All three have given us an extremely rich thematic issue, both in terms of content and number of articles (16 contributions, a record for the journal!). For the first time, the theme of altered states of consciousness (ASC) was addressed in a dedicated issue. Another originality of the issue was for its coordinators to combine the points of view of anthropology, psychiatry, philosophy, pharmacology, and neurophenomenology, thus constituting a rare sample of several cognitive science disciplines. This issue has generated a lot of enthusiasm from our readership, and even today we receive submissions related to the issue. The debates launched 3 years ago are still topical inside and outside the editorial board. We are sure that these debates will continue to flourish on this theme. They will help to bring to life Martin's warm memory and the interdisciplinary approach he cherished so much. His research was totally in line with it, studying the interaction between cultural and neurobiological processes in hallucinogenic experiences. In this same issue, Martin tackled a colossal project by proposing a "multidimensional redefinition" of modified states of consciousness (Fortier, 2017). He took up the challenge hands down, working on this issue until his last article (Fortier & Millière, 2020).
Martin approached Science with generosity, always in a collective spirit. He was notably a founding member of ALIUS, the international and interdisciplinary research group for the study of the diversity of consciousness (https://www.aliusresearch.org/).
His premature departure will be sorely missed by the scientific community.
A huge thanks to Martin for having generously shared and discussed his ideas with us.

I deeply regret having known Martin so little, I had loved his way of being.
During the preparation of issue 67 of Intellectica, I grumbled a lot. My concerns, whatever they were, remained unanswered. An email ended up arriving one day: “I am (resp. He is) in the field. No network .... Don't worry! Courage… ”. As the work progressed, I discovered the world of researchers with their soles of wind, these unprecedented sharing of experiences that I knew very little about. It was fantastic! In a message from June 2017, in the middle of editing work, I had written to him and to Guillaume: "This issue is great, I'm 'traveling'... it's a great novelty!"
In reality, it was the most hovering job I had ever done. I should have suspected it with Juan among the coordinators ... I was really happy to enter the world of ASC, so new for me, so confusing and so exciting.
Thank you Martin and your fellow travelers, Guillaume and Juan, for these beautiful moments.
