Professionnalités de l’urbain et crises écologiques : politiser l’urbanisme et ses métiers par la reconnaissance de leur constellation mythologique

Abstract : Environmental uncertainties, democratic doubts as well as economic and social complexities would challenge the urban planning's mastery, planning and predictability ambitions. Practitioners would increasingly feel inadequacy of urban planning's knowledge to take theses evolutions into account. They therefore start to renew their profession's knowledge by invoking other categories of expertise (disciplinary, relational, cooperative, experiential, etc.) based on subjective relevance criteria. This diversifying, even merging, profession's knowledge capability is called professionality.Nevertheless, theses professionalities are slowed down in achieving their tasks due to urban planning compliance to the Modernity politic plan. Thus, using the knowledge improvement as a collective emancipation, the Modernity only admits logico-formal rationality as a democratic selection criterion. It rejects any political arbitration based on affection, sensitivity, believes, axiology, etc. When Modernity is faced with theses arbitrations, it makes use of mythological patterns of thinking because the timeless, universal, structuring, and familiar impact of the myth allows to easily get a commitment. Environmental crisis revive uncertainties and rejected topics, thus unveiling a urban planning's mythological constellation through Prometheus, Babel and Orpheus myths. The knowledge of urban planning's myths is absolutely necessary for professionalities as they define fora for expression avoiding the Modernity reproductive power.
