An essay on the regimes of cities combinations and the dynamics of the worlds (In French)
AbstractThe aim of this article lies in the categorization of modes of regulation, of coordinated actions. We mobilize a constructivist and complex epistemo-methodology and place our approach within the economy of conventions. A regulation is perceived as a combination of cities which organizes a world, an action situation structured by relations of power. The two keys used to categorize the modes of regulation are the finalized space times of the action (the universes) and the intensity of the power which is exerted there. We reinterpret the concept of city within the framework of an action theory using power theories. They are examined and, as a result, the concept of utility is perceived within a complex, built and located framework. The model suggested authorizes an infinite number of possible regulations and finds the need for a multi-disciplinary approach when one’s study a world. It also recognizes the plurality of action logics and their degree of generality. Finally, we show that this model coincides with the identity model forged in Sciences of Management.
