Pour une histoire sociale de la perception : L'idée d'apprentissage perceptif dans le surf hawaïen au XIXe siècle

Abstract : In the 18th and 19th centuries in Hawaii, differences between native Hawaiians and Westerners perceiving the ocean are decisive to the understanding of waves by societies. While Hawaiians swim at ease in the surf zone, navigates stormy waters with their canoes and surfboards, Westerners express their mixed feeling. British, Americans, and French are both fearing and admiring breaking waves, thus highlighting their cultural difference with the natives. To explain such contrast, this work argues for a social history of perception. Then, it offers a theoretical framework aiming at understanding perceptive learning, and at explaining different kinds of human interactions with the environment. The consulted documents include logs of travelers making a stopover in Hawaii, diaries of permanent residents, and ancient Hawaiian collections.
