Editorial Reviews


"A very clear, systematic, and thorough analysis. No one I know has a better command of the intellectual life of France in the period from the reign of Terror to the eve of the First Empire, nor is anyone better able to discuss this period in light of the intellectual life which preceded or followed it. Minerva's Message brings together a mass of evidence about the social sciences in their nascent period and shows what happened to the key ideas of the Enlightenment after the violent upheaval of the Revolution including the Terror. It is a valuable overview of the intellectual life of the period and raises questions which concern us still." James Leith, Department of History, Queen's University. "Minerva's Message would be important were it no more than an exposition and analysis of the CMPS but Staum goes further. It is an excellent analysis of the membership of the CMPS and their intellectual traditions, making it an important contribution to the institutional history of the French Revolution." Roderick Phillips, Department of History, Carleton University.
