La République au-delà du slogan

Mots. Les langages du politique

Invoking "the Republic", calling oneself a "Republican"... Does the term Republic still have any meaning? This is doubtful, given the multiplicity of uses to which it is put, as if it had become so malleable that it could be used to mean anything and everything. The texts in this issue show that the polysemy of the word is less a reflection of the evanescence of its meaning than of a polymorphous debate on the definition of citizenship in a world marked by deepening individualism and increasing inequality. Drawing on a variety of disciplinary backgrounds – political philosophy, sociology, language and information and communication sciences – they decipher the dynamics of the dialogue of the deaf to which the Republic often gives rise, while highlighting the fundamental issues it tends to obscure: how can political emancipation be reconciled with social determinism, a community of values with pluralism, democratic debate with a republican front?

Le travail et ses maux
Work and its evils
This dossier brings together contributions dealing with words at work. Coming from political science, sociology, anthropology or information and communication sciences, the authors examine the way in which the neo-managerial discourse is conveyed and imposed by private and public sector executives and the way in which employees respond to it.

Restons groupés ! La construction discursive des relations sociales
Let's stick together! The discursive construction of social relations
Group formation in part happens through discourses that contribute to invent, sustain and transform our imagination of society. This collection of articles proposes an account of the discursive construction of groups, which is wider than the question of naming social or political groups.
