Pour dépasser les oppositions entre une recherche en, dans ou sur le travail social : une science-action en travail social

Abstract : Why, what for and whom for to conduct researches about, in and on social work ? What is the interest in building knowledge if the concerned actors via the actions that are analyzed, cannot grasp the knowledge produced ? And is it acceptable to build within the researches, a social connection dominated by the searchers who instrumentalize the actors with regard to their finality ? Looking at the searchers’ usual method which are situated on an area that is imposed by the discipline and where they ‘sail’ between the ‘possible’,the ‘sailing’ area, which becomes ‘craft’, is no longer delimited by the discipline in itself but also by the actors’ principles (prescribing people, practicioners and users). To conduct it, it is better not to have some a priori on what is happening : we build in as we go along, we include everything that is possible. This means pluridiciplinarity and co-building of knowledge. We will talk therefore of research situated where it is hard to make progress if you do not trully want to know how the actors seize it. The good surprise is that this ethical position and this research of social utility of research produce a scientifical utility. Collaboration builds for searchers an explicit space which force to clarify in front of ‘ non-peers’, allow a critical feedback and benefical -from a heuristic point of view- from practitioners on notions and categories that the searcher produces and invite them to investigate the dimensions of reality which could not be seen otherwise.
