Comprendre les objets avec l'action

Abstract : Abstract: In the early 80s, Jean-François Richard proposed to see the meanings of action as a property of objects that would be processed in a variable manner depending on the task. In his design, the goal is a central element in the representation of the action (Richard, 1983.1986). Based on the discussion of a differentiated organization of the meanings of actions, we show how this hypothesis clarifies the debate and offers new perspectives. J.-F. Richard provides a framework that can account a large number of processes at different levels of representation. It allows to account for the variability of representations depending on the context and the goal in a given situation with an ecological point of view, while explaining the treatment of implicit understanding in action statements, learning and problem solving.
