Taupin Benjamin, Lenglet Marc, 2017, « Public vs. natural grammars: Complex domination in the financial intermediation industry », in Cloutier (Charlotte), Gond (Jean-Pascal), Leca (Bernard) (eds.) , 2017, Research in the Sociology of Organizations (Justification, Evaluation and Critique in the Study of Organizations. Contributions from French Pragmatist Sociology), n°52.

    In this article, we make the point that managerial domination, described by pragmatic sociology (PS) as a form of domination that “consists in continually altering the contours of reality as if to inscribe the world in it” (Boltanski, 2011, p. 123), is an appropriate notion to make sense of complex forms of domination in contemporary organizations. Based on Lemieux’s work on “grammars”, understood as “the set of rules to be followed in order to be recognized, in a community, as correctly knowing how to act and judge” (Lemieux, 2009, p. 21, our translation), we complement approaches of complex domination put forward by pragmatic sociologists such as Boltanski and Thévenot. We illustrate the notion with recourse to an ethnographic study of the financial intermediation industry, and sketch out an alternative conceptualization of power in such environment, delineating the features of complex financial domination. We characterize this type of domination as being the result of specific contradictions inherent to the grammars of financial intermediation.
