L. a. 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 los angeles 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

They all milled and scurried around him with an avid, overwhelming concern that was unknown in the ceremonials of the West. The first to greet the Consul was the Vizier’s Secretary; the Vizier’s Deputy, Suleiman Pasha Skoplyak, was not in Travnik. Behind him came the Keeper of Arms, the Quartermaster, the Treasurer, the Protocol Officer, and behind them shoved and el­ bowed a whole crowd of people of unknown and indeterminate rank and occupation. Some murmured a few indistinct words of welcome, bowing their heads, others spread their arms cere­ moniously, and the whole throng moved toward the great hall where the divan— or reception— was to be held.

D’Avenat brought genuine good will to his task and tried to be as helpful as possible to his distinguished compatriot. To Daville, everything was new and strange and took up all of his time; but it couldn’t shut out the thoughts which, espe­ cially in the slow hours of the night, flashed through his mind uninvited, leaping swiftly from the present to the past and then again to the future, as if straining to divine its shape and visage. The nights were oppressive and seemed endless. He couldn’t get used to lying on the low mattress on the floor, which made his head feel heavy, or to the smell of wool in the hard-packed and newly refilled pillows.

At first, taken aback, the Consul tightened his reins and slowed down, but D’Avenat spurred his horse nearer and, without turning in the saddle or moving a single facial muscle, began to urge in an agitated whisper: “I beg Your Excellency to ride on quietly and pay no attention. They are wild ignorant people. They hate everything foreign and greet everyone in this way. It is best to ignore them. That’s what the Vizier does, ignore them. It’s their barbarian way. ” Baffled and outraged, although trying his best to hide it, the Consul rode on, realizing that none of the Vizier’s guards did in fact pay any attention to what was happening; but he felt a rush of blood to his head.
