From the Study of Social Practice to the Study of “Distance to the Object”
This article, written in memory of Jean-Claude Abric, aims to present some conceptual
developments of the so called “Ecole Aixoise” concerning the role of social practices in the
dynamic of SR, explore some characteristics of the notion of social practices and the ambiguities
and issues associated with this notion in the field of SR, and present a recent conceptual option
entitled “Distance to the Object”.
