CONFERENCE 103 - SOCIOLOGIE DE LA CRITIQUE : LA CONCRÉTISATION DU MONDE PROJET
In 1991, (1996 for the English version), the sociologist Luc Boltanski and the economist Laurent Thevenot published a book entitled On Justification. Economies of worth in which they fully recognizes the role of the actor. However, they do not neglect the normative bases that support the decisions of the actors and materialize in the form of six worlds. One of the criticisms made about On Justification was the ahistoricity of the worlds. To respond to this criticism in 1999 Luc Boltanski and Eve Chiapello published Le Nouvel Esprit du Capitalisme in which they present the genesis of a new world they call the project world. This world will also be the object of attacks questioning its strength. This presentation is based on an empirical analysis in order to demonstrate that the project world does have its place alongside the original worlds. Even if some of its caracteristics are found diluted in other worlds, we observed its uniqueness and its expression through the wiki aimed to revisit the operational processes of the new Centre hospitalier de l’Université de Montréal.
