L’organisation des connaissances : contribution à l’analyse d’une épistémè de type numérique

Edwige Pierot (Aix Marseille Université, France)


The study of the historical issues of Knowledge Organization that concern mechanisms of production and access to the information and the circulation of knowledge is inseparable of political, economic, educational, and social concerns linked to Knowledge Organization Systems and the users of communities of practice. The production of knowledge and the “arts of doing” of these communities question the discursivity of terms in the digital environment first, and second – at the epistemological level. We argue that this environment matches, in a unique dynamic, the communities and the discourses they produce; and that this systemism reveals the presence of a digital type of episteme opening a serious path for the development of an epistemic interoperability.
