The court society by Norbert Elias ( Book )
84 editions published between 1969 and 2010 in 8 languages and held by 886 libraries worldwide
This classic study of the life of the nobility at the royal court of France, especially under Louis XIV, has long been out of print. Recognised by historians as the benchmark for studies of early modern courts, which were an important but long neglected phase in the growth of the 'civilising' constraints imposed on people in increasingly complex networks of interdependence. Elias shows how courtiers - and finally even the king himself - were entrapped in a web of etiquette and ceremonial, how their expenses, even down to details of their houses and households, were dictated by their rank rather than their income. Includes appendix on the parallels between factional competition at the royal court and within Hitler's regime. Originally published in German in 1969 as Die hofische Gesellschaft.

Time : an essay by Norbert Elias ( Book )
43 editions published between 1984 and 2007 in 8 languages and held by 590 libraries worldwide
Cet essai réunit les grands éléments d'une histoire universelle du temps, ou plutôt de sa mesure, des premiers balbutiements de la civilisation à l'époque contemporaine. Pour Elias, ce que nous appelons temps n'existe pas en soi. Critiquant l'idée que l'expérience du temps puisse être le fait de l'individu abstrait, supposé identique à lui-même, toujours et en tous lieux, Elias insiste sur sa dimension sociale et montre qu'on ne peut comprendre le temps qu'en le replaçant dans une "sociologie révolutionnaire". Dans les sociétés avancées de l'Occident, la "grille" du temps rejoint la vie sociale; en revanche, dans d'autres sociétés, l'expérience du temps est discontinue, puisqu'il n'existe bien souvent que des repères "naturels". Pour lui, le temps physique n'est qu'une ramification du temps social.
