Echoes of the Marseillaise: The Enlightenment and the French Revolution Legacy in National Constructions in the 19th and 20th Centuries
Taking into account the uniqueness of the French Revolution that imposed a new vision of the world and of society in the eyes of its admirers and detractors alike, this volume deals with the considerable impact it had in Europe and on the world from 1789 to the 20th century.
This dossier analyses how Spinoza reshapes the legacy of different traditions. For him, these legacies are in fact materials to be reworked: how does the Spinozist system deal with the classic questions of suicide, historical experience, divine omnipotence and human finitude?

Challenging Foucault with psychiatry and psychoanalysis
The aim of this issue is to examine the link between the epistemological reflection on mental health and the historical knowledge that identifies it as an object.

Tetens and transcendental philosophy. Psychology, transcendent philosophy and perfectibility
This collection of texts is intended to correct a historical oversight. Johann Nikolaus Tetens (1736-1807) is an ignored thinker, yet he played a central philosophical role in eighteenth-century Germany. He developed the problem of the objectivity of knowledge before Kant and gave previously unknown opportunities to philosophical thought.

The 16th century saw the emergence of vernaculars as languages of thought, and the parallel maintenance of Latin as a learned language of communication and thought.
