50 editions published between 1985 and 2016 in 6 languages and held by 512 libraries worldwide
La cour d'honneur de la Sorbonne est domínée par deux statues - celle de Víctor Hugo et celle de Louis Pasteur - un poète et un homme de science. C'est à I'extérieur, sur la place de la Sorbonne, que se trouve le monument à Auguste Comte, fondateur et patron de la sociologie. Tandis que la littérature et les sciences avaient leur place assurée à l'intérieur de l'Université, la sociologie a dû conquerir le droit d'y entrer. Ce livre restitue la lutte que se livrent trois protagonistes, trois cultures : les sciences, les lettres et la sociologie. Certes, les forces en présence ne cessent de se redéfinir. Et que de différences entre la France marquée par l'héritage d'un Auguste Comte et déchirée par ses luttes idéologiques, l'Angleterre où une évolution moins polarisée produit de surprenantes alliances et l'Allemagne, où, plus tard venues, les sciences sociales provoquerit une scission radicale entre des cultures irréductibles. Mais nul schématisme dans ces pages où une érudition étourdissante, un art consommé de la composition et de la narration reconstituent toute la complexité des controverses, des idées et des positions sans négliger la bizarrerie du destin

Die Macht am Mittelmeer Französische Träume von einem anderen Europa by Wolf Lepenies( Book )
7 editions published in 2016 in German and held by 160 libraries worldwide
Der Plan schien perfekt: Präsident Sarkozy wollte seine südlichen Nachbarn für eine Mittelmeerunion gewinnen, um ein Gegengewicht zur deutschen Dominanz in Europa zu etablieren. Angela Merkel wusste das zu verhindern - eine zeitgeschichtliche Fußnote? Für Wolf Lepenies führt Frankreichs Traum von der Macht am Mittelmeer in die unbewussten Regionen der europäischen Geschichte, dorthin, wo die Komplexe und die wechselseitigen Ressentiments schlummern. Die deutsch-französische Rivalität greift den Gegensatz zwischen dem strengen Norden und dem lebenslustigen Süden, zwischen katholischer und protestantischer Welt auf, Ideen und Stereotypen, die bis ins 18. Jahrhundert zurückreichen und heute wieder politischen Diskussionsstoff liefern. Man muss sie kennen, wenn man verstehen will, wie sich in Europa Koalitionen und Frontlinien bilden. Wolf Lepenies bringt diese überraschend andere europäische Geschichte ans Tageslicht
