C’est la Beauté qui sauvera le Monde - Dostoïevski
Bruno Lussato, great humanist, pianist and man of culture who died in 2009, held the Chair of Systemics at the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Arts et Métiers in Paris. He also taught the theory of organization of complex systems as a visiting professor at the University of Pennsylvania Wharton School. Considered the pope of microcomputer science, he was also a prolific writer, publishing numerous books and articles, including Bouillon de Cultures (which gave its eponymous title to the famous TV show in France), as well as a major work on Wagner published in two volumes by Fayard.
His avant-garde vision of the dissolving boundaries between art, science and culture and his holistic approach to the great civilizations and shifting paradigms at the dawn of the 21st century, earned him respect as a consultant to large multinational corporations, a close acquaintance of many statesmen and a friend of major artists. He devoted his entire life to teaching these precepts, and in doing so helped forge a deeper mutual understanding of economic, political, philosophical and artistic spheres.
He was elevated to the rank of Commandeur de la Légion d’Honneur for the quality of his research and academic career.
