HISTORY OF IDEAS (I)


Total amount: 37 pages

As a discipline that comes into being in the late 1930’s the History of Ideas puts roots in the soil of Western culture(s) already in the early 19th century. Prefigurations of its agenda occur in the 18th, and even in the 17th century. Commonly regarded as a history of –isms, of, that is, sets of concepts, ideas, symbols able to encompass and explain reality, the History of Ideas is a must of Cultural Identity Studies. It sounds logical that it should feature on a Cultural Studies agenda.

HISTORY OF IDEAS (II)

Total amount: 32 pages




A definition of the History of Ideas as a history of –isms brings in the question of the whole set of disciplines and the interdisciplinary approaches entailed by such a view of culture and cultural identity.

The History of Ideas stands in a relevant relation to Intellectual History, Cultural History, and the history of Mentalités.

HISTORY OF IDEAS (III)


Total amount: 21 pages


The History of Ideas is a ‘canon with variations’ that goes back to the classic antiquity, in the last instance. It is, as such, bound with the History of Philosophy. Previously thought of in terms of fixities and givens – as part of the traditional universalist vision – the History of Ideas is currently considered in terms of its own history. The ‘History of Ideas itself has a history’ is an established topos in the literature and requires apposite evaluation.
