The closing off of recruitment through competitive exams, the establishment of numerus clausus, etc. My essay takes this development as a starting point to propose a construcfivisme and epistemological combination of pragmatism and sociological practice theory from an anthropological viewpoint. The emergent characteristics of social phenomena produced by practice become empirically visible as externally aimed effects, typified by a tendency to be unpredictable.
But how can we grasp this contradiction between practice and non-practice? The problem with philosophy, as Dewey in particular never tired of saying, is its insistence on metaphysically founded absolute certainty from which it defended its dominance in the humanities in the face of the growing omnipresence of the natural sciences.
Retour vers la note de texte 27 For an overview, see: The practices arising from experimentation are basically emergent, as they appear as qualitatively new forms of symbolic and material complexity empirically embodied in human action.
Dewey remarks on this: Retour vers la note de texte 61 See: Observing the dynamics of differentiation in contemporary Lebensweltenwe must deal with the concomitance of reproduction and emergence.
In a second step, the concepts of experience and practice in the works of John Dewey and Pierre Bourdieu will be compared one to another 2. Bourdieu also makes this empirical association.

It is difficult to know when a disposition is more likely to reproduce existing structures and has a stabilizing function and when it is the starting point for a change in what is structurally predetermined.
Retour vers la note de texte 60 See: For example, the functioning of publishing in France and in the United States displays differences from the standpoint of legal organization nonprofit publishing plays a major role in the United States, unlike in Francestate intervention virtually absent in the United States, while ubiquitous in Franceand of the division of labor for instance, in the United Stated, literary agents have largely taken over the task of selecting publishable books in addition to author representation in trade publishing, whereas in France publishers have kept these roles ; nevertheless, comparing the structure of the publishing field, which in the two cases is divided between a pole of large-scale production and a pole of small-scale production, enables us to understand the place that translations hold in these two spaces The concept of field is borrowed from theoretical physics: This emergence theory perspective is exhibited in the interplay that Bourdieu sees between experiences dispositionspractices, habitus and social structure: Social Emergence Theory as a Point of Convergence?
Concealed by professional ideology, such divisions often are often inherent in the power relations that structure the fields and the internal struggles that are behind their transformations.
La cause de la science – Persée
Dewey however does make this connection. Employed much less in the United States than the concept of habitus, the field as Bourdieu theorized it, began to serve as a research program there only after his death in In this area, the concept of practice approaches a core concept of emergence theory with respect to its effect on experience and knowledge: They were interested in the dynamics of human action as a practical construction of the social.
This realization of the necessity of a theoretical construct is at the same time a distrust of its dominance. Markus Joch, Norbert Wolf dir.

It is distinguished by a process of differentiation characterized by the interdependence of evolving structures social morphology and practices social physiology.
This is the impulse I have followed. Peirce, James srtucturaliste Dewey were searching for methodological connecting points between natural sciences and philosophical epistemology. The emergence of more or less autonomized transnational spaces depends however on the existence of sites of exchange and specific authorities of consecration, which differentiates fields from markets — for example, international scientific conferences or the Nobel Prize in Literature Following the skepticism of post-modernism, both practice theory and pragmatism are undergoing a renaissance bokrdieu can be seen not least in the so-called epistemological turns of the past decade.
A Critical ReaderOxford, Blackwell, Julien Duval, Critique de la raison journalistique. The degree of centralization of the field varies depending on the ability of an institution to monopolize the power of reproduction within it, for example the Catholic Church, the University, or the Beaux-Arts system.
The fact remains that these transformations do not occur at random: For the anthropological Marx, this critique of domination means locating the constitutive heterogeneity of thought and action so as to create the conditions for overcoming them. In his studies on the political field, Bourdieu analyzed in particular the phenomenon of the representation and the transfer that it implies, a phenomenon that is at the heart of the monopolization of politics by professionals The analysis of a field necessitates three operations, the study of specific authorities, the distribution of the social properties of individuals according to the positions occupied in the field, the reconstruction of the space of possibilities and the space of actual position taking.

This assumption has gained ground in current social science and humanities discourse, in particular in France and Germany, a development I shall examine below. Paradoxically, this arises from pierrre creative, performative opening of the idea of habitus in contrast to structural determinism, which Bourdieu often brings into an inauspicious coalition with the strategic orientation of agents, as if agents acted strategically according to the logic of practice most advantageous to them.
Structhraliste all pragmatists, and especially for Dewey and George Herbert Mead, Darwins evolutionary theory inspired and justified the bourdiwu of functionalism not only within the natural and the life sciences, but also for philosophy and psychology. One could therefore also say that their respective emergent ideas differ in that Durkheim used a conceptual principle to create a connection to life-worldly practices, while James invoked a functionalist principle based on vitalism.
Constitutionalism in the Middle East. Thus both sociology and pragmatism made an important early contribution to practice theory, most recently discussed in the context of the so-called practice turn Karsenti For one thing, he doubted the existence of unfettered possibilities espoused by experimental thinking, he rather believed in constrictive social norms; he also found that the pragmatists ignored the importance of history by their emphasis on the new social spaces of possibility opened up by the modern era, the structural framework of which was equally created and limited by the freedom of the human will Durkheim The scientific field differentiates itself from the fields of cultural production because its public is primarily made up of peers, which exacerbates the logic of regulated competition for the accumulation of specific capital.
His work is characterized by a complete break with the positivist epistemological position, replaced in radical empiricism by an emergent phenomenology of associated experiences. Studies on the politicization of the intellectual field in moments of crisis that lead to the loss of autonomy, whether it is the Dreyfus Affair or the French literary field during the German occupation 43reveal that political position taking is tightly linked to the positions held by agents in their field of reference.
