, , Comment Closed

By Jean Baudouin,François Hourmant

La volonté de rompre - avec le « désordre établi », l'existentialisme, le Pcf...- a colonisé les manifestes fondateurs des revues. Elle a repairé un contrat de lecture qui s'est figé en horizon d'attentes. En privilégiant l'ample reconstitution de trajectoires ou les micro-récits exemplaires, les huit études réunies soulignent los angeles plasticité des revues et los angeles dynamique féconde des conflits et des ruptures. Maillon irremplaçable de l. a. vie intellectuelle, à l'interface du monde du texte et du monde des auteurs, elles arpentent alors le vingtième siècle en balisant des problématiques décisives : révolution et communisme, totalitarisme et démocratie. Elles balayent aussi le spectre idéologique. Du pôle traditionaliste incarné par l'itinéraire de René Guénon à l'extrême-gauche de Socialisme ou Barbarie, de multiples nuances se dessinent : libertariens du Québécois Libre, mouvance libérale et aronienne de Contrepoint, catholicisme social de los angeles revue Politique ou personnalisme d'Esprit, gauche critique de Textures puis Libre, existentialisme des Temps Modernes, radicalité esthétique et politique de Tel Quel, expérience participative de Porto Alegre. Cette mosaïque contrastée témoigne enfin de l. a. vitalité et de l. a. pérennité d'un style. los angeles montée en puissance des hebdomadaires et de l. a. télévision n'a pas relégué celui-ci au rang d'accessoire ou de fétiche. Plus encore, les nouvelles applied sciences de l'information et de l. a. conversation, et en particulier net, ont ouvert un espace illimité ou blogs et webzines peuvent proliférer désormais dans une anarchie joyeuse.
