Collection : La Croisée des chemins

Research, heritage, controversy - these are just some of the forms the movement of ideas can take. The history of thought is not restricted to grandiose and impenetrable systems; it also includes a large volume of speeches, polemics, and conceptual migrations from one branch of thought to another. The "La croisée des chemins" collection publishes texts on the subject of intellectual history and its current impact: philosophy, political and legal theory, the aesthetics and challenges of scientific practices. It also sets out to promote foreign research in these areas and to make available to readers the key texts which are regarded as milestones in this history.

« Il faut éduquer les enfants… »
"Children have to be educated…"
L'idéologie de l'éducation en question
Questioning the ideology of education
La croisée des chemins
The sentence "children have to be educated…" seems all at once like a foregone conclusion, an injunction and an ideal. It seems obvious to adhere to what seems to be an anthropological invari-ant. However, this work proposes another perspective based on philosophical and historical studies of two major periods.

L'homme et la brute au XVIIe siècle
Human and brute in 17th century.
Une éthique animale à l'âge classique ?
An animal ethics in early modern philosophy?
La croisée des chemins
The book questions the representations, debates and arguments supported by the authors of the 17th century about the relationship between men and beasts, also called "brutes" at that time. No animal ethics appears in their writings, but this absence cannot be related to the mere expression of irrational prejudices.

Louis Althusser et Michel Foucault, lecteurs de Hegel
Louis Althusser and Michel Foucault, readers of Hegel
La croisée des chemins
Against a simplistic view of Louis Althusser's and Michel Foucault’s anti-Hegelianism during the 1960s, the book goes through the early works of these philosophers to shed a light on the importance of Hegel for the elaboration of their problematic. the book aims to explain how they elaborated their thought by an immanent critique of Hegelianism.

Fernand Deligny et la philosophie
Fernand Deligny and Philosophy
Un étrange objet
A strange object
La croisée des chemins
For more than sixty years, Deligny has built a body of work around children on the fringes. A work that inextricably links theory and practice, opportunities and attempts, writing and cinema. By a thought of both the immutable and the circumstantial; by a look that turns out – in an unusual sense – to be deeply and differently political.

Descartes, Cureau de la Chambre, Poulain de la Barre and Malebranche
La croisée des chemins
This book is a study of two major conceptions of gender difference in the modern era: that of Descartes and that of Cureau de la Chambre. Their legacies are complex, from Poulain de la Barre's feminist egalitarianism to Malebranche's inegalitarian differentialism.

Charles T. Wolfe, Pierre-François Moreau
Lire le matérialisme
Reading Materialism
La croisée des chemins
These essays focus on the problem of materialism in the history of philosophy, in different contexts, some classic, some less so (mind-body relations, the status of the brain, the issue of atheism, but also, dreams, embodiment; laughter and the emergence of a "new materialism" in contemporary thought)
