[Teaching taken from the Faculty of Arts and Philosophy, degree in Humanities and second
level degree in Modern Philology under the name “French Literature”]
COURSE AIMS
The course sets out to develop a conceptual guide to the national, cultural,
historical and political characteristics with which all those considering themselves
French identify.
This conceptual guide has been identified (in both positive and negative terms) in
the concept of clarté, the moderation and rational organisation in which France as a
nation has recognised itself for over four centuries.
COURSE CONTENT
France: clarté and mesure
1. Brief historical introduction: French legal and cultural institutions up to the
“Grand Siècle”.
2. Cultural organisation and linguistic control: the Académie Française, the
Dictionnaire, national art, the celebration of power.
3. Introduction to clarté: formation and evolution of the concept: from renaissance
"creativity" to the notion of "moderation".
4. The moral science of the Grand Siècle: the honnête homme, Augustinism,
liberty and destiny.
5. Readings from: Molière, Le Misanthrope; Racine, Phèdre; La Bruyère,
Caractères; La Fontaine, Fables; Bossuet: Un sermon; Pascal: Quelques
pensées.
