Abstract

[eng] Methodological individualism revised by the economics of conventions : an critical analysis. . This paper investigates the methodological point of view of the Economies of Conventions. The latter is original because it attempts to apply the Popper-Agassi principle to the plan of the Economics of Conventions that is to analyse the collective nature of the market. In order to carry out its plan, the Economics of Conventions proposes to overtake the conflict of methods between the methodological individualism and the methodological holism. But, the positive contribution of the Economics of Conventions is fraught with obscured by ambi-guities and approximations. So as to to clarify those, this paper carries out a distinction between the functional holism and the morphogenetical individualism. In this frame, the Economics of Conventions needs a new methodological holism sketched in our conclusion. [fre] Critique de l'individualisme méthodologique revu par l'économie des conventions . . Cet article se propose d'analyser la position méthodologique défendue par l'économie des conventions. Celle-ci, en accordant le principe de Popper-Agassi à son projet d'explicitation de la dimension collective du lien marchand, occupe une position originale par rapport aux tentatives précédentes de dépassement de la querelle des méthodes. Son apport toutefois s'accompagne d'ambiguïtés, d'imprécisions qui obligent à un effort de clarification qui passe par une distinction que nous proposons entre un individualisme morphogénétique et un holisme fonctionnel. Placé dans ce cadre, le projet de l'économie des conventions commande pour être mené à bien un holisme renouvelé, dont nous esquissons la trame en conclusion.
