The Fondation de la Maison des sciences de l’homme ( 1963-2013).

Founded ,with the collaboration of Clemens Heller, by Fernand Braudel in 1963, the Fondation de la Maison des sciences de l’homme-Paris has played an important role in the development of the humain and social sciences in France. In this paper, we will present 1) the history of this very original and dynamic institution : its main orientations (interdisciplinary, support to emergent research programs, etc.,) and actions (library and documentations, conferences, publications, international cooperation etc.) at the national and international levels and 2) the special place of the sociology in this institution : collaboration of French sociologists (from Raymond Aron, Pierre Bourdieu, Alain Touraine, Serge Moscovici to Philippe Besnard, Alain d'Iribarne, Michel Wieviorka) and sociologists from other countries, (W. Lepenies, I. Wallerstein, etc.).
