Un écrit technique dans l'histoire : le "Mémoire sur la construction et l'entretien des chemins" de Trésaguet (1775)

Abstract : To subject a document to critique and make it into a historical subject : these two angles will be taken in addressing Mémoire sur la construction et l’entretien des chemins, written by Trésaguet of the “Ponts et Chaussées” civil engineering corps in 1775. Going beyond the traditional method, this article historically situates this technical text, meaning that it questions the place it has held among that which has been written and the role that it has played in what has occurred, giving it a central position in the offered account. At stake is a new interpretation of this mémoire, which distances itself from the retrospective accounts that forge and sustain savant communities, as well as offering new perspectives on the Planning State at different points in time – and a few surprises.
