Chartier, Roger, Baker, Keith M., Kaplan, Steven L.
Reknowned historian Roger Chartier, one of the most brilliant and productive of the younger generation of French writers and scholars now at work refashioning the Annalestradition, attempts in this book to analyze the causes of the French revolution not simply by investigating its â€œcultural originsâ€ but by pinpointing the conditions that â€œmade is possible because conceivable.â€ Chartier has set himself two important tasks. First, while acknowledging the seminal contribution of Daniel Mornetâ€™s Les origens intellectuelles de la R volution fran aise(1935), he synthesizes the half-century of scholarship that has created a sociology of culture for Revolutionary France, from education reform through widely circulated printed literature to popular expectations of government and society. Chartier goes beyond Mornetâ€™s work, not be revising that classic text but by raising questions that would not have occurred to its author. Chartierâ€™s second contribution is to reexamine the conventional wisdom that there is a necessary link between the profound cultural transformation of the eighteenth century (generally characterized as the Enlightenment) and the abrupt Revolutionary rupture of 1789. The Cultural Origins of the French Revolutionis a major work by one of the leading scholars in the field and is likely to set the intellectual agenda for future work on the subject.Chartier, Roger is the author of 'Cultural Origins of French Revolution' with ISBN 9780822309819 and ISBN 0822309815.
