"After the Deluge showcases recent work by today's brightest scholars of French intellectual history. Relying on primary and archival sources, the contributors examine left-wing critiques of the Left, the internationalization of thought, the institutional and affective conditions of cultural life, and the religious imagination, among other themes. They revive neglected debates and figures and explore the larger impact of political quarrels. In the afterword, preeminent French historian Francois Dosse heralds the arrival of a new generation and a historiographic sensibility that brings fresh, original perspectives and a passion for French history to the contemporary French intellectual arena."--Jacket." ;
