Abstract
Dans cet article, j’explore dans un premier temps la conception que se fait Lautman de la dialectique en examinant ses références à Platon et Heidegger. Je compare ensuite les structures dialectiques identifiées par Lautman dans les mathématiques contemporaines avec celles qui émergent de ses sources philosophiques. Enfin, je soutiens que les structures qu’il a découvertes dans les mathématiques sont plus riches que le suggère son modèle platonicien, et que la distinction « ontologique » de Heidegger est moins utile que semblait le penser Lautman. In this paper, I first explore Lautman’s conception of dialectics by a consideration of his references to Plato and Heidegger. I then compare the dialectical structures that he found in contemporary mathematics with the model that emerges from his philosophical sources. Finally, I argue that the structures that he discovered in mathematics are richer than his Platonist model suggests, and that Heidegger’s “ontological” distinction is less useful than Lautman seemed to believe
