Sociologie de la connaissance du chiisme dans l'espace des savoirs sur l'Iran en France (1947-2010)

Abstract : Since the establishment of renewed Iranian Studies in Post-War period, the academic study of Iran has been growing abundantly in France. In this scientific space of knowledge, the question of “shi’isme” has been evoked prominently through philosophical and spiritual patterns since it became more controversial after the revolution of 1979 and the revival of “shi’isme” as an ideological mean of defying the imperial regime. This led to an epistemological and institutional rupture related to different theoretical and methodological patterns within disciplines and thought systems associated with the construction of “shi’isme” as an object of scientific enquiries. The rise of intellectual controversies between spiritual and historicized frameworks that oriented the production of discourses on “shi’isme” challenges the scientific and epistemological patterns of knowledge construction, as well as ideological and socio-political ones. This study attempts to provide a constructivist approach to the advent and the evolution of scientific discourses on “shi’isme” in France from 1947 to 2010, through a socio-historical viewpoint of the sociology of knowledge. Institutional patterns, epistemological criteria and sociological components will be put together to illustrate a comprehensive mapping of discourse structuration on “shi’isme” in the French space of knowledge on Iran.
