La puissance des genres fictionnels de l'imaginaire : sociologie d'une mouvance sociétale

Abstract : Magic, monsters, vampires, heroes, the representations of the extraordinary are pervasive and fascinate the crowd. Bookshops that open at midnight for the release of the last Harry Potter, crowded cinemas for the last movie of the Hobbit trilogy, growing cultural manifestations, role playing games and more, are only symptoms of a societal evolution of new ways to live in our era. In constant mutation, these “fictional literary genres of the imaginary”, as we call them, have penetrated many spheres of people’s lives. In this perspective, we will try to analyze and understand people’s interest for these genres, what they evoke in people’s minds at an individual level and at collective one. We will study this topic in a comprehensive sociology and will use some comprehension elements supplied by the imaginary sociology especially in what it brings to the study of presenteeism.
