Pourquoi faire le récit de l’accident de Fukushima ?

Abstract : This research studies the logic of action in a crisis situation, based on a definition of the status of the narrative and of the witness. We take the case of the testimony of Masao Yoshida, the director of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant during the accident. Through this narrative, we can see the anchoring of rationality in a specific temporality. We further point a form of aesthetic of logic. These results lead us to question the paradigm of industrial safety related to human performance, and to introduce the concept of “ecology of safety”.
