L. a. déchirure Française
Mensuel n°560 daté octobre 2015
DOSSIER. Lumières contre anti-lumières, los angeles déchirure française. Alors que l. a. contrast entre los angeles 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
