Du caractère fétiche des techniques numériques. Au-delà de la sociologie des usages et du déterminisme de la technique

Abstract : The article provides an analysis of digital technology that highlights its dual nature, simultaneously abstract and concrete. This feature is put side by side with that of commodities production, formally analogous, to consider the possibility of a digital fetishism. Indeed, the kind of abstraction that is involved in both cases has an effective reality and induces a reversal where the abstract side becomes decisive, while relying necessarily on the concrete side of each particular use.
