Une sociologie des représentations sociales de l’urbain en quête de reconnaissance. Peer review

Paulette Duarte | 16.08.2018

This article aims at filling a present gap in all books of contemporary urban sociology, namely the absence of references to the existence of a sociology of the social representations of the urban. For that end, the author suggests reconstituting the history of this sociology, located between the fields of urban and social representations, by analysing in a diachronic way the interest which sociologists of the urban had, and still have, for the question of social representations. This interest [...]

The State and Varieties of Space Economy. Peer review

Kevin Cox | 09.08.2018

The Varieties of Capitalism literature is relatively aspatial. The focus is on differences between countries rather than within. Yet one can identify processes, varying from one country to another, that help create differences in development between cities and regions, albeit in quite different ways. The contrast between the United States and the countries of Western Europe is stark. In the latter, development policy has been subject to strong central government intervention. In the United States, development is more a [...]

Arts, sciences : le temps de l’hybridation. Peer review

Jacques Lévy et Irène Sartoretti | 02.08.2018

Relationships between arts and sciences have been experiencing a long lasting misunderstanding. This situation notably derived from an underestimation of the role imagination plays in sciences and reflexivity in arts. If we accept the idea that sciences and arts both contribute, each in their own way, to the cognitive dimension of cultural productions, then we can more easily make visible many similarities and some differences between those two realms. As a result, a programme of interactions, translations, and hybridizations [...]

Jacques Lévy, Nobel de la géographie 2018.

Christian Grataloup | 26.07.2018

The next Vautrin Lud Prize will be awarded, in October 2018, to Jacques Lévy. It is the recognition of the profound renewal that was brought by him, not only to geography, but to the social sciences as a whole, particularly by the foundation and persevering animation of EspacesTemps, first on its paper version, then on its online version. Collective work has been, and always is, the trademark of Jacques Lévy’s work. [...]

Drones d’utilité publique : Une acceptabilité controversée. Peer review

Silvana Pedrozo et Francisco Klauser | 13.07.2018

In Switzerland, the use of drones by public authorities is in full emergence since the end of the 1990s. However, public opinion regarding this technology remains largely unknown, although these aircrafts raise some crucial societal issues, in terms of surveillance, efficiency and safety. Starting from this, the present article focuses on the public perception and social acceptability of military and police drones in Switzerland. Drawing upon a quantitative opinion survey conducted in the canton of Neuchâtel, this paper demonstrates [...]

Une spiritualité du donné naturel ?

Bourg, Dominique. 2018. Une nouvelle Terre. Paris : Éditions Desclée de Brouwer.

Augustin Berque | 20.06.2018

Dominique Bourg’s A New Earth shows that the modern ideal of mastering nature is ending in its contrary, a total loss of mastership. The reviewer agrees on the whole, but criticises Bourg’s conception of “natural given”, which implies determinism, whereas the relation at stake cannot be but contingent. [...]
