Les artistes en quantités. Ce que sociologues et économistes s'apprennent sur le travail et les professions artistiques
This final contribution shows that the relationship between economics and sociology has been largely changing during the last period. During a long time, we attended an opposition between a sociology that benefited from exhaustive empirical studies on the demand side, producing important debates about cultural stratification ; and economics that benefited from very seminal analysis tools stressing the importance of market competition and information. This contribution takes as an example of new reciprocate exchanges the domain of artistic labor supply and three related issues (the evolution of the artistic occupations’ categorization ; the relevant criteria of professionalization ; the distribution of the corresponding incomes). Then, P.M. Menger shows that sociology and economics are cross-fertilizing and mutually benefit from their specific researches programs. Very likely, the polarization of such disciplinary perspectives on the seminal concept of uncertainty has contributed to this mutual enrichment.
