Publication d’un article de Sylvain Maechler et Jean-Christophe Graz dans la revue Review of International Political Economy
In the context of the global ecological crisis, this article questions the ability to anticipate the future, or what is often referred as the substitution of risk for uncertainty. Are there limits in the substitution of risk for uncertainty? The authors argue that there are limits but recognizing them requires to distinguish between their ontological and epistemic levels of analysis.
But how to cope with such limits? One approach seems to be promising for coping with limits, what we refer as a pluralization of science: knowledge production processes aimed at overcoming disciplinary boundaries and better including lay and expert knowledge. Take-home message: researchers should consider such limits when analyzing disruptive events such as Covid-19 crisis.
