Le concept foucaldien de population à l'épreuve des pratiques contemporaines de conservation. Une enquête philosophique

Abstract : This proposal consists in a probation of the heuristic value of the concept of population, as elaborated by Michel Foucault’s class at the Collège de France in 1977-1978, in order to enlighten the contemporaneous management of Mediterranean vegetal populations, and particularly their translocations with a view to conser-vation. Starting from a tension within M. Foucault’s analysis of the concept of population, both as a correla-tive power (as opposed to the older concept of “people”) and a scientifisation operator (from natural history to modern biology), we try to enlighten the precise use made of this concept within the contemporaneous conservation practices. Though the foucaldian analysis characterising a type of governementality grounded on the population definitely allow an interpretation of certain dimensions of these practices, by other aspects, these practices prevent a mere application of the concept and their study can, conversely, bring one to precise or refine the original concept.
