Chapter Summary

The purpose of this chapter is to offer a panoramic view of the use made of Joseph de Maistres most famous pamphlet, the Considérations sur la France, in the historiography of the french Revolution. More precisely, it intends to gather evidence of the echoes left by the Considérations in later interpretations of the french Revolution, beginning with Germaine de Stels Considérations sur la Révolution franaise, published in 1818. Maistran interpretation of the phenomenon is the only one, among those written in the French language during the Revolution and against it, which has not fallen into oblivion, being unceasingly read, re-edited, and translated into many languages.

Keywords: Considérations sur la France; Joseph de Maistre
