Premiers signes d'une société relocalisée : éléments pour une philosophie sociale des circuits courts alimentaires

Abstract : This thesis proposes an analysis, in social philosophy, of the food relocalization that has been taking shape, over the last thirty years or so, in industrialized societies. This phenomenon is made up of cooperative initiatives which, at the local level, aim to bring consumers and food producers closer together. Our research aims to uncover the link between food relocalization and socialism. Above all, it intends to work on the deep meaning of this link: food relocalization prefigures what a relocalized society could be. Indeed, the relation of food relocalization to socialism generates the following normative proposal: food relocalization alters socialism by confronting its project of a society with a spatial requirement that its doctrinal matrix contains without giving it the scope it should have. This spatial requirement refers to the local dimension of genuine economic cooperation. It indicates that, if this dimension is taken into account, it necessarily affects – in the sense of a decrease – the size of the territory covered by society insofar as it is also a material form. This normative proposal is based on two areas of work. The first is theoretical: it shows how socialism can take charge of the spatial dimension of the integration of the social into a a society. The second is heuristic; it seeks to detect, at the level of local food initiatives, the signs that a different representation of society is emerging and that it gives a particular salience to territory.
