La connaissance de l'indéterminé.
|Abstract:||This Ph.D. thesis studies the concept of common sense in terms of practical knowledge and intersubjective knowledge. Departing from the hypothesis that common sense is a modus of collective knowledge, the guiding question of the study is formulated: How is it possible to know-in-common or to share knowledge? Two interpretations of common-sense knowledge can be formulated in response to that question: it is a shared opinion; or it constitutes a collective stock of practical knowledge. Common-sense thinking as a cognitive mode is characterised by three elements: a sensitive intuition, reflective judgement, and a relation to others in judgement. Common sense is finally defined as a capacity to grasp the uncertain; the comprehension of what can be otherwise (of contingent beings); the ability to master the haphazard occurrences and gain practical certainty.|
