Description

This volume explores and contextualizes the contributions of Gilles Paquet as a social scientist. A quintessential public intellectual, Gilles Paquet's long and multifaceted career has shown him to be a thinker of significant power and creativity. This self-described "homo hereticus"--always critical and sometimes controversial--has influenced scholars and policy makers in Canada and around the globe. The contributors reveal how his assessments of economics, politics, public administration, and education have stirred their minds and helped them make sense of the world around them. The volume also provides comments on Paquet's vision of governance, touching on concepts of which he has made extensive use: meso-analysis, social learning, and moral contracts.
Cet ouvrage examine et remet en contexte les travaux de Gilles Paquet, économiste et historien qui tout au long de sa carrière a été un intellectuel public et un penseur d'une remarquable créativité. Celui qui se décrit lui-même comme un « homo hereticus » -- esprit critique ne craignant pas la controverse -- a exercé une grande influence dans les milieux universitaires et dans le monde des décideurs au Canada et ailleurs. Les auteurs montrent comment ses écrits et ses commentaires sur l'économie, la politique, l'administration publique et l'éducation les ont aidés à mieux comprendre le monde qui les entoure. Cet ouvrage présente notamment certaines des réactions par rapport à sa conception de la gouvernance et à son usage de concepts tels la méso-analyse, l'apprentissage social et le contrat moral.
