À propos des variantes émergentes du canyoning dans le sud de l'Europe et en Amérique du Nord. Nature contre wilderness (naturalité) et géographie des éthiques de pratique

Abstract : After having built the concept of ethics of practice, this research details the case of wild-boaring and of clean canyoneering which constitutes two variants of canyoning/canyoneering. Developed in geographical, social and cultural different areas, these two initiatives in canyon activities in Southern-Europe and North-America reflect the historical tendencies of these two continents in the field of the sporting practices of nature. On one hand the ethics of the clean canyoneering is a particular part of the wilderness experience, on the other hand the ethics of the wild-boaring is composed of a spirit of conquest presented by caving and European alpinism in the XIXth century.
