André Siegfried 1875-1959 : L'Odyssée de l'Occident : la construction d'une histoire des identités

Abstract : In Siegfried's intellectual universe, mankind no longer has certainties. The words of his first inaugural lecture at the Collège de France allow us to grasp the essence of his work and to establish a hierarchy of his essays. Siegfried has made the metamorphosis of the Occident, of its colonial expansion, the starting point and the point of arrivai of a reflection imbued with a duality whose general terms are: civilisation and its destiny. For Siegfried, the singularity of the Occident is irreducible, and he has ceaselessly warned against the measurability and irreversibility characteristics of its weakening. The discourse then intents, following a one-way movement, to discover what could be the appropriate solutions of continuity for the Occident to withhold its primacy. lis understanding of the world combined with his literary talent, consisted in defending the possibility of an objective knowledge of the world, while claiming a moral reading of the latter.
