L'éthique de la presse dans l'oeuvre d'Albert Camus entre théorie et pratique

Abstract : As a reflexive journalist, Albert Camus had started a questioning on the essence of journalism and on the journalist's behavior. This thesis proposes to study the conception of press ethics in the author's work between theory and practice. An analysis of a press corpus which was formed mainly by his writings in newspapers such as, Alger Républicain, Le Soir Républicain, Combat et L'Express (1938-1958). This analysis had been supported by the studying of a complementary corpus including his essays, his works of fiction and his circumstances writings (1935-1960) concerning journalism. In order to place the author's thought and his behavior within the context of the social institutions and the situations in which he moved, not only biographical approach was crossed with the speech analysis technics but also the author's work and his real-life had been highlighted. To start, a panorama of principles, values and rules of the journalistic ethic advocated by the author was drawn. After that, in view of the conflicts that had marked Albert Camus' work because they went through his time (World War II and the French-Algerian conflict), a fine study of his commitment for peace had been developed from the point of view of the ethic practice. This stage had two goals; the first was to define and to characterize the editorials practices and the author's commitment methods for peace. The second was to report about the journalistic device that had been mobilized by him
