Socialism and the Experience of Time

Idealism and the Present in Modern France

Julian Wright

  • Examines nineteenth- and twentieth-century French socialism to understand the importance of time and modernity in historical and political study
  • Suggests a fresh perspective on intellectual history, showing how historians can study temporality, and specifically the idea of the present
  • Offers important insights into still-continuing debates about how socialists and the left more generally articulate their visions of social transformation
  • Provides a new window on the lives and intellectual activities of leading figures on the French left, such as Léon Blum and Jean Jaurès
