Located at the crossroads between the study of language, politics and history, in recent years conceptual history has aroused considerable interest amongst a wide range of scholars working in social sciences, philosophy, and humanities. Although there is no doubt that Reinhart Koselleck’s Begriffsgeschichte constitutes a major source of inspiration, conceptual history is practised nowadays in many different ways.
The essays compiled in this volume, written by distinguished experts, present a broad panorama of the most important methodological challenges faced by conceptual history today, as well as some more specific contributions regarding the temporal dimension of certain modern concepts. At a moment when time and concepts – and political concepts in particular – are no longer obvious and taken for granted but have themselves become historical matter, this book does not limit itself to an updating of the state of the art; it also offers very useful lessons for the development of future research into this field.
