Pour une approche constitutiviste de l’habitant en géographie culturelle

Abstract : Through a set of narratives analysis, this paper gives food for thought to apprehend the dweller using a constitutivist approach. This approach encourages overpassing the supposed shared and objectifiable frames (spatial and social structures) and interpretations tools (identified and predetermined) of reality in order to access to the meaning the dwellers give to the reality. The constitutivist approach postulates that the only possible manner to apprehend (and may be change) the dweller’s ways of being, doing and thinking is to refer to the singular world he constitutes doing so. Any conception of a world supposedly constructed on a collective basis is of no help to apprehend both the shape and the meaning of the dweller’s one.
