(VF)La notion de logique d’action est proposée par certains auteurs pour accéder aux comportements des acteurs dans une perspective de dépassement du dualisme acteur/système nourrie des multiples regards théoriques pertinents sur l’acteur ou la situation. Pour fonder ce même dépassement, la notion de projet est retenue par d’autres pour participer d’un effort de théorisation de l’action collective. Dans un premier temps, ces deux regards théoriques sont synthétiquement présentés. Dans un second temps, ils sont rapprochés et discutés autour de deux questions:les logiques naissent-elles de projets? les projets deviennent-ils des logiques? Il ressort de la réflexion que la méthodologie des logiques d’action ne peut se passer du concept de projet pour clarifier sa posture théorique.(VA)The notion of “the logic of action” is proposed by some authors to better understand the behavior of the actors and reach beyond the dualism that opposes actors and systems. Such a perspective builds on multiple theoretical perspectives on the actor or his context. Other researchers suggest that the notion of “project” should be central in an effort to conceptualize collective action. At first, the two theoretical approaches are summarized. Secondly, they are critically questioned along the following lines:does the logic of action arise from projects? Do the projects become logics of action? The discussion demonstrates that the methodology of the logic of action needs to refer to the project to clarify its theoretical posture.
