Une théorie communicationnelle de la valeur économique : l'approche délibérative

Abstract : The orthodox theory of value is one of the dogmas of the justification regime of capitalism. Yet this theory suffers from many ills. Consequently, it is advisable to try, in the wake of A. Orléan and F. Perroux, to think of a new theory of value. The work presented here is part of a broader research that we presented in this same journal four years ago. It aims at inserting the understanding of value into the normative framework of democratic society. Drawing on the methodological achievements of contemporary sociology, it proposes to go beyond the Habermasian theory of deliberation by drawing on work in information and communication sciences. This interdisciplinary approach makes it possible to go beyond the classical opposition between subjectivism and holism: values are intersubjective: they are the fruit of deliberation, i.e. contradictory and sensitive communication. Values are the ends, desirable and continuously debated, that a democratic society gives itself in the course of its evolution. Economic value is only one of its desirable and debated ends.
