La figure de Saint-Simon dans les discours technocratiques français

Abstract : This paper, based on various contemporary and historical sources, as well as a personal experience, tends to investigate how the figure of Claude-Henri de Saint-Simon (1760-1825) is mobilized nowadays in some discourses originating from a special French environment, at the border between large French corporations and the highest ranks of French administration (Corps des Mines, Inspection des Finances,…). Relying on the moral value of science and technics, defining public policies on the side of the political power, and finally promoting the notion of “common interest” at the highest ranks of some French enterprises would be the three cardinal virtues of such discourses.
