Abstract

Summary: This article makes a detour through anthropology and history in an attempt to clarify some of the meanings covered by the notion of public opinion. Rather than assigning to it an a priori definition, the author attempts to reconstitute the strata of meaning which remain embedded as much in the representations which society associates with the term as in the conceptualization which sociology or political science have tried to make from it.
