AB - In this article the author looks at and discusses the revival, in research on mathematics teaching (didactique des mathématiques), of the notion of epistemological obstacle, coined by G. Bachelard (1938).
To do this he illustrates certain aspects specific to the notion, notably the fact that an epistemological obstacle is an integral part of mathematical knowledge. Thus, the identification and characterisation of an obstacle are essential to the analysis and construction of didactical situations. These questions are illustrated by the particular case of the construction of the concept of decimals.
The original version of this article dates from 1976 ; it is followed by a commentary relevant to the curent debate on the relationships between the teaching and the epistemology of mathematics.
