Pensée de la foule, pensée de l'inconscient : Généalogie de la psychologie de la foule (1875-1895)

Abstract : With his Psychologie des foules (1895), Gustave Le Bon was considered the inventor of a new science of society. However, conceptual genealogy shows that Le Bon, far from opening up, on the contrary closes the era of crowd thinking, subjecting it to his thought of "race". Indeed, before Le Bon, Italian theorists had held together, at the cost of strong theoretical tensions, a deterministic discourse on the crowd and a discourse in favour of the emancipation of the dominated classes. It is therefore impossible to reduce crowd psychology to a reactionary ideology. A different viewpoint opens up on this social science that has now disappeared.
