    Abstract

    Partant d'une critique de la théorie fictionnaliste de la firme en tant que noeud de contrats, cetarticle met en exergue les fondements ontologiques de la firme en tant qu'entité réelle. Lesdébats juridiques traditionnels sur la nature de la firme sont « recontextualisés » dansl'intention de pallier l'insuffisance conceptuelle des théories économiques. La portéethéorique de cette représentation de la firme en tant qu'entité réelle transparait clairementdans l'analyse de la firme-réseau. Le rôle unificateur des relations de pouvoir intra-réseau estexplicité. Et une discussion mêlant considérations juridiques et réalités économiques estproposée afin de circonscrire les implications juridico-économiques qui découlent del'émergence de cette entité productive complexe. La firme-réseau est une entité réellesingulière composée d'entités légales distinctes – tout comme l'est la firme stricto sensu.
