The European mind, 1680-1715 by Paul Hazard( Book )

59 editions published between 1952 and 1990 in English and held by 1,751 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The period 1680-1715 was a great turning point in Western intellectual history. It marked the beginning of the general ferment which caused the overthrow of the classical mind and provided the initial stimulus for the establishment of the Romantic Enlightenment. With clarity as well as a sharp sense for the evaluation of detail and historical relevance, the author delineates this ferment and the process of erosion of respect for tradition, stability, proportion and settled usage which characterized Classicism
La crise de la conscience européenne, 1680-1715 by Paul Hazard( Book )

"The majority of the French thought like Bossuet: all of a sudden, the French think like Voltaire: it's a revolution," wrote Paul Hazard in this now classic book. From 1680 to 1715, the most contradictory and powerful ideas clash. The classical order, which had resumed power after the Renaissance, seemed eternal. Around 1680, everything starts to move. An outside air seems to blow in the solemn building; spirits have the audacity to pretend that the Moderns are worthy of the ancients, that progress must prevail over tradition, science over faith. "It was a matter of knowing whether humanity would continue its course by relying on the same guides or whether new leaders would turn it over and lead it to other lands promised." A pivotal time therefore, where the spirit of doubt arises everywhere. The taste of travel stories expands horizons and undermines acquired certainties; we discuss the Bible, the authenticity of the sacred texts, the mysteries; freethinkers make war on tradition; we speak of natural religion, of natural death, of natural right, we dream of an era of earthly happiness founded on reason and science, philosophers advocate tolerance. It is this tremendous bubbling of ideas and men described by Paul Hazard, here somewhat tracing the history of the origins of contemporary Europe.--translation provided by

The crisis of the European mind, 1680-1715 by Paul Hazard( Book )

8 editions published between 1990 and 2013 in English and held by 134 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Paul Hazard's magisterial, widely influential, and beloved intellectual history offers an unforgettable account of the birth of the modern European mind in all its dynamic, inquiring, and uncertain glory. Beginning his story in the latter half of the seventeenth century, while also looking back to the Renaissance and forward to the future, Hazard traces the process by which new developments in the sciences, arts, philosophy, and philology came to undermine the stable foundations of the classical world, with its commitment to tradition, stability, proportion, and settled usage. Hazard shows how travelers' tales and archaeological investigation widened European awareness and acceptance of cultural difference; how the radical rationalism of Spinoza and Richard Simon's new historical exegesis of the Bible called into question the revealed truths of religion; how the Huguenot Pierre Bayle's critical dictionary of ideas paved the way for Voltaire and the Enlightenment, even as the empiricism of Locke encouraged a new attention to sensory experience that led to Rousseau and romanticism. Hazard's range of knowledge is vast, and whether the subject is operas, excavations, or scientific experiments his brilliant style and powers of description bring to life the thinkers who thought up the modern world. --
