The Interdisciplinary Laboratory for the Study of Reflexivities (LIER, Laboratoire interdisciplinaire d’études sur les réflexivités) is a research group founded in 2013. It is part of the Marcel Mauss Institute (EHESS/CNRS, UMR 8178). LIER currently consists of around twenty statutory researchers, research associates, and postdoctoral researchers, as well as around twenty PhD students. LIER members are affiliated to social science (sociology, political science, anthropology) and philosophy.
This composition reflects LIER’s scientific project: forging a new alliance between social science and philosophy by studying the social forms of reflexivity, which have emerged with the advent of modernity as a condition of both the practice of these disciplines and society’s political relation to itself.
Thus, LIER’s program aims to analyze: from a sociological perspective, how individuals, institutions, and societies face the challenge of producing reflexive knowledge; from a philosophical perspective, how this reflexivity – which has entailed fully appreciating the socio-historical nature of humanity – has fundamentally transformed the philosophical method.
