This web-site is dedicated to people interested in the research program known as " course-of-action " (with its three fundamental theoretical hypotheses, enaction, preflective consciousness and activity-sign, its observatory end its studio), either to take part in it, or to draw a part of their inspiration from it, or to contest it. It presents a selection of texts, past or current, not easy to find, written by myself, Jacques Theureau, alone or among other authors, and my list of publications regularly updated.
