Chapter Summary

Revolving around structured situations, fiducial responsibilities and ongoing efforts to establish and then maintain meritocracy, deliberation and disinterestedness, professionalism is intrinsically vulnerable to breakdown or regression as a project of occupational, organizational and instructional upgrading. The visual Académie's very presence in Paris as a major intermediary association in civil society steadily institutionalizes this shared sense of fiducial responsibility. Visual academiciens initiate their claim to an independent visual-cultural authority within the structured situation of visual narrations by essentially adopting Italianate taste and practices. They use the Académie de France à Rome to situate themselves physically in the Eternal City. Corporate law doctrine is instructive for the sociology of professions because it deals ultimately with mandatory rules of behavior which today, being procedural-normative rather than substantive-normative, are applicable to all private governance structures in all intermediary associations.

Keywords: corporate law doctrine; fiducial responsibilities; Paris; Visual Académie professionalism
