Un instrument symbolique de la domestication : le jardin zoologique aux XIXe-XXe siècles (l'exemple du parc de la Tête d'Or à Lyon)

Abstract : The study of zoological gardens has hardly started and yet they already reflect both a symbolic meeting point for man and the wild animal, and an instrument of domestication. Created in 1859 as a pleasure garden, the Parc de la Tête d'Or gradually took on a new orientation, that of an exotic menagerie built up througth gifts from colonial and travellers. Despite the added potential, the Park was more of a public attraction than a major scientific focus. The zoological layout nevertheless confirms a desire to interact with nature, a desire wich clearly reveals the ambition of the contemporary westerne world.
