About the Authors
  • French thinkers have revolutionized European thought about knowledge, religion, politics, and society. Delivering a comprehensive history of thought in France from the Middle Ages to the present, this book follows themes and developments of thought across the centuries. It provides readers with studies of both systematic thinkers and those who operate less systematically, through essays or fragments, and places them all in their many contexts. Informed by up-to-date research, these accessible chapters are written by prominent experts in their fields who investigate key concepts in non-technical language. Chapters feature treatments of specific thinkers as individuals including Voltaire, Rousseau, Descartes and Derrida, but also more general movements and schools of thought from humanism to liberalism, via the Enlightenment, Romanticism, Marxism, and feminism. Furthermore, the influence of gender, race, empire and slavery are investigated to offer a broad and fulfilling account of French thought throughout the ages.

    • Provides a thorough account of the history of French thought from the Middle Ages to the present day
    • Accessibly written chapters, by leading scholars, deliver studies on specific thinkers, including Voltaire, Descartes and Derrida, as well as tracking the influence of various schools of thought from humanism to Marxism, feminism, and liberalism
    • Sheds light on the influence of race, gender, empire and slavery on French thought through the ages
