• Description : Quels programmes, quels paradigmes sous-tendent les recherches en sciences humaines, créent les écoles rivales et rapprochent des disciplines différentes ? remark chacune de ces disciplines parvient-elle à articuler l. a. size historique et structurelle qui l. a. compose ? remark se gèrent les rapports entre modélisations mathématiques et récits de scenario ? Quelle position est donnée aux motives, quelle signification accordée aux raisons ? Faut-il opposer ou articuler explication et compréhension ? Les sciences sociales sont des disciplines aux frontières incertaines. Les unes, comme l'histoire ou l. a. géographie, remontent à l'Antiquité. Les autres, comme l. a. sociologie ou los angeles psychologie sociale, ont tout juste un siècle. Certaines prennent pour objet l'ensemble des phénomènes sociaux et d'autres - l'économie, l. a. linguistique, and so on. - privilégient un domaine d'activité déterminé. Mais derrière cette diversité - d'origines, d'objet, de culture - surgissent des issues essentiels de rencontre et de recouvrement que synthétise et interroge ce manuel.
