The empirical study of the "water memory"controversy allows us to discuss the relevance of the "antidifferenciationnist" thesis in sociology of science. If the detailed study of the controversy over the "memory of water" shows that its dynamics is combined with opening confrontation arenas, thus resulting in a secularization of the academy and a bl...

The scientific controversies and the differenciated nature of science. Lessons from the Benvenist affair The empirical study of the « water memory » controversy allows us to discuss the relevance of the “antidifferenciationnist” thesis in sociology of science. If the detailed study of the controversy over the “memory of water” shows that its dynami...

En juin 1988, paraît dans Nature un article où est affirmée la possibilité d’un effet moléculaire sans présence physique de molécule ; l’eau se comporterait comme un support liquide sur laquelle des signaux moléculaires pourraient être enregistrés. Cette thèse est soutenue par Jacques Benveniste, un chercheur de l’Inserm alors reconnu pour ses trav...
Conference Paper
Nowadays, innovation and translational research concepts are commonly used in science policies. They often refer to the need to contribute to the diffusion of new scientific knowledge toward socio-economic impact. However, novelty is not exclusively related to discoveries: work can remain ignored for a long time, before being recognized. The aim of...

A l’heure actuelle, les notions d’innovation et de recherche translationnelle sont très fréquemment utilisées. Elles renvoient souvent à la nécessité de contribuer à une circulation de connaissances scientifiques nouvelles dans une logique de valorisation. Pourtant, la nouveauté n’est pas exclusivement liée à des découvertes : des travaux peuvent r...
Conference Paper
Numerous scholars have contributed to the question of innovation diffusion and the barriers to this process; stressing the role of adopters, the sociocultural structures and science interactions, or the inter-relationship between university-enterprise and government. Despite burgeoning medical innovations, there are increasing concerns that these i...

Article
Full-text available
Charles Dotter has been described as the father of interventional radiology, a medical specialty born at the interface between radiology and cardiology. Before 1979, it was relatively difficult to find citations to a landmark paper that Dotter had first published in 1964—qualifying this study, from a scientometric perspective, as a sleeping beauty....

Dans le domaine de la cancérologie, les thérapies les plus fréquemment citées sont la chimiothérapie, la chirurgie et la radiothérapie. Il existe pourtant, à côté de ces traitements traditionnels, d’autres voie thérapeutiques possibles comme l’ablathermie (radiofréquences, HIFU), la chimio-embolisation ou bien encore la cimentoplastie. Ces traiteme...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Charles Dotter is described as the father of interventional radiology, a medical specialty born at the cross-border of radiology and cardiology. Dotter’s landmark paper published in 1964 was poorly cited until 1979 and can be considered from a scientometric point of view as a sleeping beauty. Sleeping-beauties are article that suffer of a delayed r...

Thématique en plein essor, l’ingénierie écologique suscite un intérêt croissant tant dans le monde de la recherche que dans celui des praticiens et gestionnaires de milieux terrestres et aquatiques. Pour mieux définir les contours et les buts de ce domaine, les scientifiques de l’Institut national de recherche en sciences et technologies pour l'env...
Article
Full-text available
The aim of this article is to test the model analysis conceived by Terry Shinn on the autonomy and unity of science. For him, the differentiation of sciences can be explained in a large part by the diffusion of generic instruments created by research-technologists moving in interstitial arenas between higher education, industry, statistics institut...
Article
The 1993 French legislative elections were the only ones in which candidates were permitted to receive contributions from legal entities; the relevant financial accounts were published in the Journal officiel [rough equivalent of the US Congressional Record]. Those elections constitute an exemplary case for studying the question of relations betwee...

Article

A partir de deux exemples, il s'agit de réfléchir sur les usages possibles de l'entretien unique. Nous en distinguons deux. L'un, probatoire, consiste à utiliser l'entretien comme instrument de corroboration d'hypothèses. On verra que cet usage passe par une dénaturation de la réalité sociale de l'entretien. L'autre, exploratoire, fait de l'entreti...

Cet article offre un commentaire critique de l'ouvrage de Paul Atkinson paru en 1990 The ethnographic imagination. Textual constructions of reality. Cet ouvrage s'inscrit dans un mouvement theorique plus vaste qui travaille le champ des sciences sociales et qui est souvent rapporte au tournant linguistique ou encore aux strategies verbales utilisee...
Article
Ce travail porte sur la mobilite thematique en sociologie. Ordinairement consideree comme resultat de processus sociaux, la mobilite thematique a rarement ete examinee pour elle-meme. Il s'agira d'envisager ici deux hyptotheses. La premiere suggere l'existence d'une relation entre la propension a changer d'objet et le degre de consistance instituti...
Chapter
Full-text available
Some observers of South/North relations argue that the scientific community which generates knowledge and skills for developing countries is very different from the scientific community which addresses northern audiences. A few commentators have occasionally even intimated that the former is inferior to the latter.1 In this chapter we examine the w...
