The scope of Henri Focillon’s (1881-1943) thought goes hand in hand with the precision of science. His works are upheld by a very personal view of history, and his extensive knowledge is based on a concept of art that ranks among the most remarkable of the first half of the 20th century. The time has certainly come to look beyond the elegance of an historian to discover a philosopher of history.

Texts by Henri Focillon published for the first time in French.
