We will focus on the problems of historical time and language, and read the philosophical and sociological works of the 20th century in order to understand the ways in which cultural activities and the modalities of identification were transformed during the 18th, 19th, and 20th centuries. The questions of the civilizing mission and national subjectivity will play central roles in this course.
