Abstract : The contemporary organizations seem to be living a major change with the advent of the “information society”» (also called “communication society” or, more recently, “knowledge society”). Indeed, this new technical, social and economical regime promises a different society, less hierarchic and controversial, more egalitarian and democratic, widely tinted with self-government utopia – even though this utopia is renowned as outdated. Meanwhile this ongoing revolution announced for more than thirty years, new managerial speeches are appearing that likewise draw inspiration from self-government rhetoric, witch critical function is, paradoxically, helping to regenerate the “mind of capitalism”. This study aims at going further than those speeches in order to analyze the concrete practices of these new organizational forms of the information society, by comparing them with self-governed firm considered as alternative. Using a communicational and complex approach of organizations, the goal is to understand the organizational changes conveyed by these two types of firms and to identify their similarities. In a critical perspective, both sociological and epistemological, this study successively put to the test the innovative potential of these so-called “new” organizational forms and the subversive potential of the self-governed firms. This confrontation aims at throwing light on forms and modalities used by power and critic in a society considered as democratic and pacified
