Figures de la science dans des contextes de conception

Abstract : After following two physicists involved in design situations for three years, we have focused on issues of the representation of science in design environments. Our hypothesis is that scientists modulate their posture and affirm certain aspects of science, by adopting several “roles,” in the sense of Goffman, to allow new collaborations between disciplines. This analysis leads to the identification of the forms of “dramaturgy” of science, in the meaning of Habermas, by the formulation of five “figures” which appear in the speeches of the two physicists: the university professor, the “honnête homme” (cultivated man), the expert, the mentor-researcher and the scientist-creator. We observe that these figures are representative, but even more, that they are creative and lead to new design situations.
