This paper is a tribute to the formidable multidisciplinary philosophy of information of
the French philosopher, Michel Serres. His approach is to an extent based on his
statement: “Let us nevertheless try to see on a grand scale, to enjoy a multiple, and by
times connective, intellection”. His main focus is on the notion of intellection which can
be related to human spirituality, perception, understanding and comprehension. This
human quality is urgently required if we want to reflect on knowledge as a multiple
phenomenon. His view of knowledge differs in a substantial way from currently held
views on knowledge and information and hence his plea: Let the new knowledge come.
The human quality of intellection is equally important when it is realised that the
phenomenon of knowledge in its multiplicity can only be properly grasped when viewed
from the perspective of the extensive transdisciplinary connectiveness between
knowledges, which creates room for what can significantly be called the world-mapping
of knowledge and which strongly suggests the spatial character of knowledge and
information. Thanks to the quality and capacity of intellection it becomes possible to
demonstrate certain deeply theoretical and immensely practical issues in the
embracement of the idea of a new conception of knowledge.
