ABSTRACT
The article addresses three main topics of labour sociology and is based on the development of an analytical framework which offers new insights into them. The notion of organization is related to "investments in forms" that make equivalencies and contribute to broad-scope coordination. Power is related to a plurality of "forms of worth" which govern the qualification of persons on things, in the perspective of a critical test for legitimacy and justice. Work activity unfolds in a second kind of pluralism, that of "regimes of engagement" which support unequally extensive modes of coordination, from close to distant and public, and refer to hardly compatible notions of the good, from familiar ease to the public good. This framework has played a significant role in the development of the "Economics of convention" and has contributed to the elaboration of a political and moral sociology, developed with Luc Boltanski.
