Lectures voltairiennes : colloque à la Bibliothèque de Voltaire (Bibliothèque nationale de Russie)

Voltaire Foundation

La bibliothèque de Voltaire à Ferney, acquise par Catherine II après la mort de l’écrivain, fut installée en 1779 dans l’Ermitage du Palais d’Hiver à Saint-Pétersbourg. En 1861, elle fut transférée à la Bibliothèque impériale publique (actuelle Bibliothèque nationale de Russie).

Bibliothèque de Voltaire Bibliothèque de Voltaire (Bibliothèque nationale de Russie, Saint-Pétersbourg).

Après la visite du président Jacques Chirac en 1997 et grâce aux efforts de Nikolaï Kopanev, alors directeur de la Réserve des livres rares, un projet de coopération culturelle franco-russe démarra, qui aboutit à la création d’une salle dédiée à la bibliothèque du philosophe. Elle fut inaugurée en 2003, l’année du tricentenaire de Saint-Pétersbourg, par les premiers ministres des deux pays, MM. Mikhail Kassianov et Jean-Pierre Raffarin. Toujours à l’instigation de Nikolaï Kopanev, qui assuma le poste de conservateur en chef de la Bibliothèque de Voltaire, le parti fut pris de créer en ce même lieu le « Centre…

Abstract
This paper argues against a common misunderstanding of Foucault’s work. Even after the release of his lectures at the Collège de France, which ran throughout the 1970s until his death in 1984, he is still often taken to have made an “ethical” turn toward the end of his life. As opposed to his genealogies of power published in the 1970s, which are relentlessly suspicious of claims of individual agency, his final monographs focus on the ethical self-formation of free individuals. I suggest that this basic misinterpretation makes possible interpretations of Foucault’s work as being sympathetic to neoliberal government, by linking the ethical turn to a “liberal”…

À la faveur de la nuit: rethinking night and pleasure in the Age of Enlightenment

Voltaire Foundation

Baudouin, Les Heures du jour: La nuit Pierre-Antoine Baudouin, Les Heures du jour: La nuit, ca. 1778, gouache on paper, 25.9 x 20 cm, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York.

The protection afforded by the night to lovers is more than a recurrent theme in literature. It is a cliché: ageless, universal, obvious. There is no need to travel back in time to the century of Fragonard and Crébillon to read or hear about nights in white satin, strangers in the night, or pleasures that shake you all night long. Because the night belongs to lovers, apparently… from Hero and Leander to Romeo and Juliet, from the couple in La Nuit et le moment (1755) to the duo in It Happened One Night (1934).

Nevertheless, when eighteenth-century artists set their heroes’ dangerous liaisons under the cover of darkness, this signalled potentially far more than a mere awareness of the lovers’ need to…
