Des vies conduites par les œuvres

Abstract : This article examines a recurrent situation in the history of sociology. After criticising biography as an intellectual approach, a scholar carries out a seemingly biographical project. The confrontation of two famous cases (Siegfried Kracauer and Pierre Bourdieu) shows them as opposite proposals of intellectual history and anthropology (social biography vs. sociology of one’s life). The field thus temporarily organised becomes a choice object to rethink the place of biography in the history of human sciences, but also to propose a way to overcome this alternative. To do so, the author suggests that a new tool be developed, the notion of “scholarly life.”
