Modern Intellectual History: A Roundtable

  • Abstract

Informations and abstract

Keywords: Modern Intellectual History; Global Intellectual History; History of Ideas; Spatial Turn; Cambridge School.

Three intellectual historians review the debate on the (presumed) rebirth of intellectual history that has opened up forty years ago. They point out how the discipline has been renewed thanks to a number of seminal books and articles, while preserving its trans-disciplinary methodological bases. And they discuss three main points: first, whether it is possible to talk about a real «rebirth» of the discipline, and why; second, whether the correlation between intellectual history and the history of ideas can be considered outdated, and what are its methodological implications; third, if the spatial turn has had an impact on intellectual history.
