Los angeles déchirure Française
Mensuel n°560 daté octobre 2015
DOSSIER. Lumières contre anti-lumières, los angeles déchirure française. Alors que los angeles contrast entre l. a. gauche et l. a. droite devient diffuse, los angeles France s’est aujourd’hui choisi un nouveau clivage : l. a. «pensée unique» contre les «réacs», les «élites» et le «populisme». À y regarder de plus près, c’est une nouvelle fois l’héritage des Lumières, ses interprétations concurrentes ou son rejet, qui est en jeu. En partant des joutes politiques et intellectuelles contemporaines (notamment cristallisées par le nouvel essai d’Alain Finkielkraut), ce file met en viewpoint une guerre des Lumières qui a cours depuis le XVIIIe siècle et ne s’est jamais éteinte: entre Lumières et anti-Lumières, mais aussi entre Lumières divergentes, le conflit est originel en France, non sans paradoxes. Lumières «modérées» ou «radicales», révolutionnaires et contre-révolutionnaires, rationalistes et mystiques… Leur position sur l’échiquier intellectuel est parfois surprenante. Un file coordonné par Pierre-Yves Beaurepaire et Marc Weitzmann

Sample text

Luce (1971, 209–240) has suggested that these contradictory statements are proof that the passage mentioning Augustus’ title was added later, to the previous version in which Cossus was merely described as a military tribune. This hypothesis must be taken seriously, but it does not prove that this possible first version was necessarily written before Octavian had obtained the title “Augustus,” although the possibility cannot be dismissed. It is also quite likely that Livy simply included this parenthetic remark because of its relevance to events that were happening while he was writing his Roman history, and this, no doubt, because he felt that common courtesy demanded it or because he felt constrained to do so since the prince had done him the honor of sharing this piece of information with him.

Livy ends the passage by stating that he himself would deem it sacrilegious to challenge such a testimony (4. 20. 7): Hoc ego cum Augustum Caesarem, templorum omnium conditorem ac restitutorem, ingressum aedem Feretri Iouis quam uetustate dilapsam refecit, se ipsum in thorace linteo scriptum legisse audissem, prope sacrilegium ratus sum Cosso spoliorum suorum Caesarem, ipsius templi auctorem, subtrahere testem. ) However, a few chapters later (4. 32. 4), when Livy again mentions Cossus’ feat, he calls him a military tribune.

Basing his analysis on a passage from the preface (3), he suggests that the Paduan historian hides behind the modesty of his social status and a reverential attitude toward the auctoritas of those above him so as to avoid appearing too daring when dealing with sensitive political issues which, in any case, could not be resolved one way or another as the events had happened a long time before. R. M. Ogilvie (1965b, 563–4) believes that Livy inserted Augustus’ testimony after he had written the lines about Cornelius Cossus (4.
