Abstract It is shown that there is an energy associated with the spin. Then the electron is considered as a fluid mass and the wave function as a quantification of the mechanical action. This approach enables us to understand why in Dirac{close_quote}s theory just the total angular momentum is a constant of the motion and allows an explanation of the {ital g} factor. Then an interpretation of Dirac{close_quote}s equation is proposed putting in view the trajectory of the electron. {copyright} {ital 1996 American Institute of Physics.}
