Croire en l'Histoire

By François Hartog

L’Histoire fut los angeles grande puissance et l. a. grande croyance des temps modernes. Véritable théologie, elle organisait le monde et lui donnait sens. On se mit à son carrier, au aspect de s’aveugler, voire de commettre le pire en son nom. Juge suprême des conduites et des évènements, elle enthousiasma et terrifia.Affaire des historiens, elle ambitionna d’être une technological know-how, tandis que les romanciers s’attachèrent à dire ce monde saisi par l’Histoire.

Depuis les années 1980, cette toute-puissance est mise en reason. Notre rapport au passé est désormais affaire de mémoire plus que d’histoire ; trop imprévisible ou trop prévisible, l’avenir semble avoir disparu de notre horizon, et l’historien est pris dans l’urgence du présent. Devenue justiciable plutôt que juge, l’histoire peine à remplir son rôle de trait d’union entre le passé, le présent et le futur. Quel sens donner aujourd’hui au mot « histoire » ? Dans le sillage de ses travaux sur le temps, François Hartog fait intervenir, au cours de cette vaste enquête sur notre monde contemporain, historiens, philosophes et romanciers – de Thucydide à Braudel, d’Aristote à Ricœur, de Balzac à McCarthy – afin de saisir sur le vif les enjeux d’une époque nouvelle.

Révolution de 1789, le temps est accélération et los angeles leçon vient du futur. Se met en position le régime moderne d'historicité. Chateaubriand ne cesse par son écriture de passer de l. a. rive de l'ancien à celle du régime moderne.Dans les deux dernières décennies du XXe siècle, los angeles mémoire est venue au most excellent plan. Le présent aussi. Histoire du présent, Les Lieux de mémoire ont exploré ces mots du temps: commémoration, mémoire, patrimoine, country, identité. Tandis que le temps lui-même devenait, toujours plus, objet de consommation et marchandise.Historien attentif au présent, François Hartog realize los angeles montée en puissance d'un présent omniprésent, qu'il nomme «présentisme». Cette expérience contemporaine d'un présent perpétuel, chargé d'une dette tant à l'égard du passé que du futur, signe, peut-être, le passage d'un régime d'historicité à un autre.Serait-on passé insensiblement de los angeles inspiration d'histoire à celle de mémoire?
