    Islamic Positivism and Scientific Truth: Qur’an and Archeology in a Creationist Documentary Film.Baudouin Dupret & Clémentine Gutron - 2016 - Human Studies 39 (4):621-643.
    The ambition of “scientific creationism” is to prove that science actually confirms religion. This is especially true in the case of Muslim creationism, which adopts a reasoning of a syllogistic type: divine revelation is truth; good science confirms truth; divine revelation is henceforth scientifically proven. Harun Yahya is a prominent Muslim “creationist” whose website hosts many texts and documentary films, among which “Evidence of the true faith in historical sources”. This is a small audiovisual production which, starting from some archeological (...)

    Error, Aberration, and Abnormality: Mental Disturbance as a Shift in Frameworks of Relevance.Baudouin Dupret & Louis Quéré - 2015 - Human Studies 38 (2):309-330.
    In general, in our ordinary life, we manage to make the difference between “strange” behavior and error or extravagant beliefs. The question is here to know how we do so, and against what background. There are also specialized contexts for evaluating whether certain types of behavior or discourse are normal or abnormal: courts of law and psychiatric hospitals are two examples. In these contexts, judgments are formed against a background of technical or scientific knowledge, but they also result from epistemic (...)

  7. Positive Law From the Muslim World: Jurisprudence, History, Practices.Baudouin Dupret - 2021 - Cambridge University Press.
    Can the concept of law be indiscriminately extended to times and places in which it did simply not exist? Such an extension is at best useless and at worst misleading. Producing an intelligible jurisprudence of the concept of law means keeping it within the reasonable boundaries of its contemporary common-sense understanding: positive law. Parallel to Western societies in which it firstly emerged, the concept of positive law developed in many places, including countries characterized as Muslim. There, it faced other existing (...)

    The Person in an Egyptian Judicial Context An Ethnomethodological Analysis of Courtroom Proceedings.Baudouin Dupret - 2003 - International Journal for the Semiotics of Law - Revue Internationale de Sémiotique Juridique 16 (1):15-44.
    In Egyptian law, the notion of the person isformulated in statute law, used in case-law,and practiced in what is called ``law inaction''. It is closely associated with theconcept of legal capacity and incapacity. Thisarticle concentrates on legal practices relatedto the person as they emerge from actual legalinteractions in judicial contexts. This willlead to propose a praxiological approach to thenorm, the law, and the following of a rule.Such praxiological sociology allows to observelaw, i.e. both language and action, as itactually operates and (...)

    Préférences Et Pertinences: Analyse Praxéologique des Figures du Compromis En Contexte Parlementaire. A Propos D’Un Débat Égyptien.Jean-Noël Ferrié & Baudouin Dupret - 2004 - Social Science Information 43 (2):263-290.
    Taking as its departure point an Egyptian parliamentary debate, this article shows, first of all, that rational-choice theory cannot describe the making of a compromise; and, second, that the re-appraisal of preferences does not imply a change of opinion after the debate. It argues instead that the praxeological approach is more suitable for describing this dynamic.
