Of names and man

Abstract : This article, in memory of Jean-Claude Abric, constitutes an opportunity to develop two main ideas. The first one has to do with the history of social psychology and points at the absence of reference to this author in history chapters from French-langage textbooks in the field. The second, drawing upon writings on game situations, states that the main virtue of the representation-capable layman, which is never questioned in social psychology, is that of anonymity. On this solemn occasion, full of memories of life, exchanges and ideas, my paper will be structured by the range of variations around a core idea: that of names. In memory of a man, an author and therefore a name, I intend to approach this topic in two ways; at first from a historical perspective and then from an epistemological one.
