In the fall 2005, I was elected to the Collège de France in Paris, for a newly created chair of Experimental Cognitive Psychology. Shortly after their election, professors at the Collège de France traditionally give a 1-hr inaugural lecture, which both introduces their discipline and sets a program of research and teaching for the years to come. The present article is the translation and adaptation of the text of the inaugural lecture, which was given on April 27, 2006. I am grateful to Kurt Fischer for encouraging the publication of this text, which only partly relates to issues of mind, brain, and education, and to Michel Ferrari and Marc Schwartz for their translation from the French original
