Faut-il être compétent ?

Abstract : Rejecting the principle of political competence, which is one of thefoundations of the democratic model, elitist theories oppose the accomplished citizen, equipped with all the resources required for an understanding of political issues, to the individual without qualities characterized by his inability to deal correctly with these issues. To this orderly image of the political space, one can oppose the idea ofa certain continuity between ordinary thought and expert thought, and even question the relevance of the very concept of competence.
