Cognition, sociologie et recherches en STAPS

Abstract : The psychology analyzes the mental functionning of the individual and approaches the question of the knowledge and their mobilization by proposing an individualistic point of view. The sociologist has difficult in finding his place. The sociological aspect of the intelligent behavior would like the social dimension of learning of techniques or the knowledge which it involves. Any human behavior would be social because its context is social... But it does not mean that the cognition involves in the intelligent behavior. It is social only from the point of view of the origin and the conditions of acquisition of the knowledge. Nevertheless the capacity to think or to acquire knowledge, to act, is less a capacity to form and to treat internal representations that a capacity to undertake in social practices which are stimulated and articulated by common ideas, justifiable faith as impersonal abstract systems. Several sociological perspectives turn to the study of the cognition and are more or less present in the researches in STAPS. We shall put in evidence these research ways and shall discuss them.
