Abstract
EN
The philosophical problem of an history of objects, and not only of the history of the « discovery” of an object is tackled in this theoretical article that uses an empirical example -an article by Pasteur- and Whithead’s philosophy. It explores on which conditions, according to Whithead, it would be possible to overcome the limits of « social” explanations of realism without falling back on the realism of the past.
