    Using a literature review we explain the motivations for the elaboration of expected utility theory. We show that the transformation of the role of this theory from being a normative tool to become a fundamental research problem is due to the numerous tests not yet explained. Then we discuss on the relevance of considering the procedure used by the decision maker to be the basic concept. À l’aide d’une revue de littérature, nous expliquons les motivations qui ont entraîné la création de la théorie de l’espérance d’utilité. Nous montrons que le passage de cette théorie du rôle d’outil normatif à celui de problème de recherche fondamentale est la conséquence de l’arrivée de nombreux tests encore non expliqués. Par la suite nous discutons de la pertinence de considérer la procédure employée par le décideur comme étant le point important à la base des modèles.
