Structure de la production et structure de la connaissance. Eléments pour une théorie autrichienne de la firme


  • Philippe Dulbecco

[eng] Production structure and knowledge: towards an Austrian theory of the firm. . . In this contribution, our aim is to melt in the same analytical framework the Austrian conceptions, on the one hand, of the structure of production, and on the other hand, of the dynamics of knowledge; and then to propose a renewed theory of the firm and more generally of the analysis of the coordination of activities of the firms. In the debate concerning the new theories of the firm, we show that it is necessary to take into account the processual dimension of both production and knowledge in order to analyse as a process the coordination of firms plans. [fre] L'objet de cette contribution est de fondre dans un même cadre analytique les apports autrichiens dans le domaine de l'étude de la structure de la production et dans le domaine de la dynamique de la connaissance que les individus en ont ; et ce, dans la perspective de produire une théorie renouvelée de la firme et plus généralement de l'analyse de la coordination des activités entre les firmes. Dans le débat relatif au développement des nouvelles théories de la firme, il s'agit pour nous de souligner tout l'intérêt qu'il y a de considérer de très près ce que nous sommes convenus d'appeler une théorie autrichienne de l'entreprise qui, en réconciliant la dimension processuelle de la production et de la connaissance, propose une analyse minutieuse de la coordination dans le temps des plans des entreprises.
