Les statistiques: un pharmakon pour la communication?

By Olivier Nannipieri and Isabelle Muratore


Companies, political parties and media use statistics to refine their communications strategy. But, are the statistical analyses not a pharmakon for the communication, that his at the same time a tool to communicate better and an obstacle to the communication? Indeed, the statistics are based on anthropological and epistemological’s assumptions which are incompatible with the understanding of the communication: fixism, positivism, quantification, simplification, determinism, predictability. In spite of these presuppositions, isn’t it possible to find an approach of the statistics applied to the communication
