Les limites de la performativité des énoncés économiques: les apports de John Searle
Oeconomia - History | Methodology | Philosophy
The problematic of performativity has recently produced several criticisms and debates about the status of the economic discourse. Indeed the affirmation that economist shapes the world by describing it could leads to the subjectivist idea that each theory can in fine be 'true' and each theory can perform the social world in his specific way. This work clarifies this problematic in connecting it with the institutional theory of John Searle. We define performativity as a particular type of assignment of function. Finally, this enables us to show that performativity is limited by two kinds of factors : brut facts and social facts.
