Faire science avec l’incertitude : réflexions sur la production des connaissances en Sciences Humaines et Sociales

Abstract : Because of their epistemological and methodological specificities, Humanities and Social Sciences cannot avoid the question of uncertainty. Researchers in these disciplines are thus forced to “do science with the uncertainty”, by integrating it in the process of knowledge production, from object conceptualisation, to phenomena analysis and modelling, to decision support. Through uncertainty, the question of knowledge production in the Humanities and Social Sciences is thus clearly posed. This paper is the collective work of an interdisciplinary group of researchers and draws examples from different research fields. It proposes an overall reflexion on the specificities of uncertainty in the Humanities and Social Sciences and on their consequences on the produced knowledge.
