Abstract

L'objectif de cet article consiste en une évaluation critique de la théorie évolutionniste contemporaine qui s'est développée depuis l'ouvrage fondateur de Nelson et Winter [1982]. Cet ouvrage et cette théorie s'appuient sur les traditions schumpeterienne et simonienne, quitte à renoncer à certaines de leurs hypothèses initiales. Nelson et Winter proposent une critique de "l'orthodoxie contemporaine" et de ses fondements microéconomiques. Ils suggèrent, par ailleurs, un programme de recherche qualifié de génétique organisationnelle qui s'inspire de la biologie. Cette approche a soulevé de nombreuses critiques car il existe une ambiguïté quant au niveau pertinent de sélection des technologies et des routines. La nature même de la création de la connaissance est discutée. Par ailleurs, le rôle des routines dans la téhorie évolutionniste est mis en avant au niveau conceptuel et au plan de la formalisation. Le projet de recherche proposé se caractérise au total par une originalité certaine même si des problèmes liés à la caractérisation des processus de sélection et de mutation existent et font débat au sein de l'évolutionnisme contemporain.
