Il y aurait tant de choses à dire sur elle et pourtant si peu de lignes ont été écrites en Belgique pour en livrer une analyse du fonctionnement qu’on finirait là par se demander si elle ne serait pas définitivement frappée d’ostracisme. Incompétente, éclatée, trop politisée, bureaucratique, cadenassée, véritable citadelle des planqués, la vieille dame obscure et silencieuse demeurerait décidément bien muette, résistant imperturbablement aux modes et aux crises, s’amusant presque de la situation. A quoi bon se perdre dans les dédales de l’administration et vouloir lui consacrer un livre quand tout semble être dit, ramassé en quelques mots, quelques images ou quelques situations que tous et toutes nous avons un jour ou l’autre vécues ou entendues ! Le diagnostic serait sans appel. L’administration excellerait par son incompétence et son asthénie chronique, nous balançant continuellement d’un guichet ou d’un bureau à l’autre. Sempiternelles scènes se jouant dans les couloirs des illusions perdues… Inlassablement, l’administration suscite l’ironie, quand il ne s’agit pas de crainte ou de véritable défiance de la part du citoyen. Certes, les administrations demeurent d’énormes appareils institutionnels rigides et difficiles à mettre en action. Mais ce ne serait pas leur rendre justice que de s’arrêter à ces seules dimensions les condamnant sans appel. Depuis de nombreuses années, les administrations ont bel et bien témoigné d’une capacité à évoluer, tout comme les manières de gouverner nos sociétés, masquant de plus en plus difficilement les changements en profondeur qui se sont amorcés et ont soulevé de nouvelles questions, de nouveaux enjeux où se profilent sans doute de nouvelles manières de faire de la politique publique.

Facultative paedomorphis is a developmental process in which larvae opt for metamorphosis before maturity or reach sexual maturity while retaining larval traits (e.g., gills). Although metamorphosis is not reversible, the paedomorphic state is not a dead end as branchiate adults are able to metamorphose. However, the extent of this process has never been quantified in the wild. Our aim was then to estimate switching rate by carrying out a 3-year monitoring survey of a population of Alpine newts (Triturus alpestris) inhabiting an alpine lake. The data were analysed using a multi-state capture-recapture model. While morph switching did occur in this population, it involved only 12% of the paedomorphs each year (i.e., 17% of recaptured individuals), suggesting that metamorphosis was not favoured in this population during the study period. This rate is lower than in laboratory experiments during which newts from the same population were placed in water drying conditions, but as shown previously paedomorphs can avoid metamorphosis in migrating to permanent water bodies when their pond dries out. These results are in agreement with other studies showing an advantage of a dimorphism in heterogeneous habitats. The ontogenetic pathway of wild Alpine newts is thus characterised by two forks in the developmental pathway. The first occurs during the larval stage, and the second occurs in paedomorphic adults. Such a two-level decision process may allow individuals to cope with environmental uncertainty. This may be particularly adaptive as aquatic conditions can deteriorate over time as shown by yearly changes in body condition of newts [less ▲]

Jusqu’à présent, ce sont surtout les linguistes, et plus particulièrement les linguistes cognitivistes, qui ont entrepris l’étude des métaphores conceptuelles ; pourtant, une telle approche devrait intéresser les politologues afin d’aller « derrière les mots » et d’explorer le(s) sens politique(s) des métaphores utilisées par les citoyens. Ce faisant, les politologues viendraient ainsi nourrir les réflexions des linguistes par une perspective appliquée de l’étude des métaphores conceptuelles. Il ne suffit pas de détecter les expressions métaphoriques, encore faut-il appréhender leur signification politique. C’est ainsi que dans la troisième section de ce texte, nous proposons une analyse qualitative des métaphores conceptuelles que l’on peut trouver dans les discours citoyens sur le fédéralisme en Belgique. Sur cette base, la troisième section propose, de manière exploratoire, une méthode semi-automatique d’identification des expressions métaphoriques qui pourrait être appliquée à d’autres types de discours, comme les discours politiques ou médiatiques ou encore les programmes de partis, et éventuellement à d’autres thématiques. L’ensemble de cette contribution repose sur la volonté d’étudier les relations communautaires au travers des métaphores conceptuelles qui les traduisent, en combinant une approche politologique à une approche linguistique.

Since 2009 Belgium has been through an unprecedented political and institutional crisis, which has come to an end with the forming of a new federal government in December 2011. This crisis can partly be explained by the victory of the Flemish nationalist party (N-VA) in the federal elections of 2009 and by the diverging views of the two main parts of the country on the functioning and the future of the federal state. In this presentation, we try to assess to what extent this political crisis can be explained on the metaphorical level by analysing the use of conceptual metaphors in different types of political discourse for the period 2007-2010. While politics constitutes an abstract and complex domain of experience in which metaphors play a prominent role (Lakoff 2002, De Landtsheer 2009, Semino 2008), little attention has been paid to the use of conceptual metaphors in actual political discourse (see Authors to appear, De Landtsheer 2009, Koller 2009, L’Hôte & Lemmens 2009 for some examples). In this contribution we propose to study political conceptual metaphors in two types of corpora, which have traditionally been left out of the analysis, namely political party programmes on the one hand and citizens’ discourse on the other. Our first research goal is to identify the conceptual metaphors the main Flemish (Groen!, SP.a, CD&V, Open VLD, N-VA, Vlaams Belang) and Walloon (Ecolo, PS, CDH, MR) political parties developed in their programmes and to study their level of circularity, that is to what extent they are present in the other parties’ programmes. This will allow us to determine which were the dominant metaphors of the campaign leading to the federal elections of 2009 and the victory of the Flemish nationalist party (N-VA). In a second stage, we will analyse citizens’ discourse, which was collected during two citizen panels on Belgian federalism, and evaluate to what extent these dominant metaphors determined the citizens’ perception and comprehension of the Belgian political situation.

The aim of this study is to give some guidelines for a phenomenological metaphysics. The author first questions the possibility and relevance of applying the phenomenological method in metaphysics, in order to outline a metaphysics that would be not only a "metaphysical systematics" (in Peter Simons's sense), but also a phenomenological and "constitutive" metaphysics. Then he succinctly explores some basic questions of contemporary metaphysics, in a dialogue with the recent developments of "analytical" metaphysics: Armstrong's factualism, the relationship between logic and ontology, the ontological status of universals, maximalism and negative states of affairs, ontological dependence, Moore's paradox, etc. [less ▲]

This paper, which is the sequel of a previous essay published in the same collection, provides an overview of some basic problems related to the notion of a phenomenological metaphysics. The key thesis in the paper is that the very starting point of all "critical" metaphysics should first consist in an intensional interpretation of existential propositions. Starting from the idea (for him distinctive of the phenomenological approach in general) that intensionality with an 's' now needs to be described in terms of the intentionality with a 't', the author tries to outline some implications and consequences of applying the methods used in phenomenology to metaphysical problems. He then briefly surveys some of the possible applications of this view, especially as to the theory of truth. [less ▲]
