Un nouvel esprit contestataire – La grammaire pragmatiste du syndicalisme d'action directe libertaire

Abstract : According to sociologists, there's a renewal of protest movements in France since the 1990's. We've put forward a working hypothesis that this renewal is influenced by pragmatist ideas.
To test out this assumption, we've done an ethnological field work in two socialist libertarian organizations that refers to direct action trade unionism : Alternative Libertaire, an anarchist organization founded in 1991 and Sud Culture Solidaires, a trade union created in 1996.

In this work, we've wanted to draw the analogies between the pragmatist philosophy and the practices of activists belonging to organizations referring to direct action trade unionism.
The identification of these analogies has induced the constitution of a " direct action trade unionism grammar", according to the pragmatist sociology.

The elaboration of this grammar was made out of a study of controversies among Alternative Libertaire, Sud Culture Solidaires and other leftist organizations. The debates studied draw a cartography of the French radical left. We've studied the history of different streams of the radical left, specially several anarchist ones.

This led us to discern three main grammars in the radical left organizations : a modern one
- universal, humanist and democratic-; a socialist grammar based on the struggle of classes and the denunciation of the economic exploitation and at last, a postmodern grammar, resting on cultural protests issued by minorities.
