Recent events such as natural catastrophes or terrorism attacks have highlighted the necessity to ensure the structural integrity of buildings under exceptional events. For more than 10 years, the University of Liege is strongly involved in researches investigating the response of structures further to such exceptional events ([1] and [2]). The present paper gives a global overview on recent or ongoing developments performed at the University of Liege in the field of robustness of steel building structures subjected to impact loading leading to the loss of a column. The conducted studies are founded on a combination of experimental, numerical and analytical approaches with the final aim to propose simplified procedures useful for practitioners and allowing ensuring an appropriate level of robustness to structures for the considered scenario [less ▲]

WVO Quine questions the « myth » of an ideal realm of shared meanings which every national language would express in its own way. Against the hope of transparent translations, he insists on the necessity for building equivalences from one language to another through a strategy of reducing the differences in rationality among nations as much as possible. According to Quine, otherness is not insuperable impediment to meeting/encounter and mutual understanding ; by throwing our conceptual schemes on the other communities’ uses/practices – which of course involves some symbolic violence – gaps can always been narrowed. Similarly E. Laclau questions the traditional conception of political representation, which is seen as the transparent process of transmitting someone’s will or interests on another level. For this ideal conception of representation, Laclau substitutes a pragmatic conception which takes in account the irreducible gap between the actors as well as the constitutive opacity of the process of representation : the subject’s will is constituted within the process of representation and through the representative’s productive role. In order to be transposed at the decision-making level, the subject’s interests must be translated by the representative as well as be negotiated with the other represented interests. This implies that the initial will undergoes some identity transformations. [less ▲]

Scientists in many fields of research have developed models, theories and concepts attempting to grasp and manage dangers that are often difficult to imagine. Among the different perspectives, the Science and Technology Studies (STS) Vulnerability Approach seems very promising. Relying on a constructivist paradigm, it is based on an inductive collection and analysis of a wide range of factors, with a particular focus on cultural factors and actual day-to-day practices. In this paper, we present the roots of this approach and we display findings based on three case studies exploring emergency planning in three different contexts (a city near a SEVESO plant, a school near a nuclear plant, and a city confronted to multiple catastrophic scenarios). The cases studies were realized by conducting three Focus Groups with different types of stakeholders (citizens, teachers, firemen, decision makers, etc.). After presenting the results of the case studies, we discuss how stakeholders’ participation can inform such type of vulnerability analysis in the context of emergency planning. We argue that participation fosters a deep understanding of actual safety governance practices which allows innovative results to emerge as well as it initiates a learning process among the participants. It contributes to questioning the relations between decision-makers, experts and citizens. It has the potential of bypassing the positivist and quantitative rationale of safety, and thus, of redefining the vulnerability governance. As a conclusion, we question the role of such STS vulnerability approach within the actual vulnerability governance. [less ▲]

Protagoras est un sophiste, les sophistes sont les ennemis de Platon… De ce syllogisme, la conclusion semble évidente. Elle appelle cependant quelques nuances. Plus qu’un ennemi, Protagoras apparaît en effet chez Platon comme une figure exemplaire, un interlocuteur valable qui, à travers son affirmation selon laquelle l’homme est la mesure de toutes choses, incarne la démocratie, ses conditions et ses conséquences. Ce livre traite le thème général, et classique, de l’opposition entre sophistique et philosophie, mais en le limitant à une seule question dont il déploie les différentes facettes : l’idée de mesure. Il reconstitue une pensée « protagoréenne » qui replace Platon dans son contexte intellectuel et montre comment, à travers la figure de Protagoras, c’est le débat avec la démocratie qui se joue, non seulement en tant que régime politique, mais aussi en tant que modèle théorique aux implications multiples (épistémologiques, morales, pédagogiques, techniques). Sur quel critère fonder la mesure ? Comment concevoir l’expertise et le savoir ? Quel rôle attribuer au langage dans l’éducation ? Que faire de l’identité du sujet dans le processus de mémoire ? Comment penser l’unité de la Cité ? Autant de questions soulevées dans le dialogue avec le modèle protagoréen. Comprendre ce que Platon doit à Protagoras, c’est ainsi chercher par quels éléments cette pensée l’a mis au défi et par réaction à quoi il a élaboré sa propre théorie de la mesure, de l’expertise, de l’éducation et de l’unité politique.

Promoting affiliation between scientists is relatively easy, but creating larger organisational structures is more difficult, due to traditions of scientific independance, difficulties of sharing implicit knowledge, and formal organisational barrers. Hence there is a need to research possibilities given by Communities of practice. This paper presents a research projet (doctoral thesis) whose goal is to implement Communities of Practice (CoP) in order to sustain knowledge transfer in regulatory analytical sciences. [less ▲]

Les ouvrages de Frédéric Lordon ont offert ces dernières années un éclairage nouveau des mécanismes de la finance et du capitalisme en régime néolibéral, en vertu de la place centrale qu’ils accordent aux affects. Il est frappant que cette entreprise – qui est triple: analyse de la finance, analyse du capitalisme, analyse de la domination – soit doublée d’une attention portée au discours même qui la développe. On peut repérer une telle attention dans la pluralité des genres de discours qu’investit Frédéric Lordon : ouvrages « savants » ou « universitaires », mais aussi courts essais engagés aux éditions Raisons d’agir, articles de presse dans Le Monde Diplomatique notamment, tenue du blog « La pompe à phynance » sur le site du même journal, et même pièce de théâtre récemment adaptée au cinéma, D’un retournement l’autre. Comédie sérieuse sur la crise financière. En quatre actes, et en alexandrins . Diversité de genre entre les différents types de textes, donc. Diversité interne à chacun de ces textes, aussi : le lecteur de Frédéric Lordon se trouve toujours à cheval sur plusieurs codes rhétoriques dont joue l’auteur dans un même ouvrage. On pourrait bien sûr tenir cette double diversité pour la simple conséquence du talent d’écriture de Lordon, ou d’un plaisir pris par l’auteur à jouer du langage et des ethos qu’il construit. Le présent article propose au contraire de considérer cette diversité comme le résultat d’un véritable travail sur les modalités rhétoriques du discours critique sur le capitalisme financiarisé, qu’il faut articuler aux principaux postulats de sa théorie sociale. L’hypothèse défendue sera, précisément, de considérer qu’il y a une construction rhétorique qui participe de l’entreprise critique et, du même coup, qui s’inscrit comme un geste politique dans une « société des affects ».
