Joseph de Maistres, Auguste Comte, Charles Maurras et l'Antiquité, une continuité critique

Abstract : What place does Greek and Roman antiquity have in European memory? For some, it is an unsurpassable model and the modern can only imitate its great authors. For others, it is a time of ignorance and barbarism to forget. For others still, it is a subject of curiosity, like a tribe of Amazonia, with its strange customs. For our authors, three writers of the nineteenth century, it is a bit of all this and more: Antiquity is for them the source of all future developments of civilization and knowledge. One of them writes "nothing great has a great beginning": history progresses from small intuitions. Religion, science and culture were thus born in antiquity and continued until modern times, threatened nevertheless by theorists eager for upheavals. Modernity is in fact another return from the same conflict, between the temptation of Greek division and the Roman aspiration for unity.
