Beaucoup de bruit pour (presque) rien ? À propos de la diffusion et de la réception du "jeu de la mort"

Abstract : This paper is about a television programme called " The Death Game ", which recreates the famous Milgram experiment, in the setting of a fake TV game. Our contribution aims dealing with three claims made by the producers and social scientist who framed this show. Firstly we question both their commitment against and their scientific speech about what they describe as the frightening powers of television at the beginning of the 21st century. Secondly we discuss the theoretical and methodological foundations of the programme, i.e. the monomaniac uses of Psychosociology. Thirdly we challenge, the regressive effects of producer's indifference to social sciences, their complete lack of interest for explaining " the social by social ".
