Les savoirs profanes sur le sida : des incertitudes rationnelles aux certitudes relationnelles

Abstract : “Profane knowledge on AIDS: from rational uncertainty to relational certainty”
Ideas and knowledge relating to diseases and the appropriate cures, together with norms on what one ought to do regarding the latter, encompass major and numerous uncertainties.
Inside the theoretical framework of structural interactionnism, we conceive the (trans) formation of such “profane knowledge” as processes intrinsic to interactions. Now, interactions are considered as able to produce cognitions and norms.
Close to models of communicational convergence, we assume that actors work out their answers through interpersonal discussions : the way people think is produced and shared through the spectrum of these interactions.
Nevertheless, a given actor often belongs to various circles or networks, which themselves respectively carry heterogeneous knowledge, beliefs and representations. We construct an original method in order to measure the changes in opinion of a given actor in function of the nature of its interlocutors/interviewers.
