Histoire et civilisations
Revolutions are also conducted by words. Since the end of the 18th century, in France, as in Europe and Latin America, reinterpreting the political and social order is a way of condemning and rejecting the current system, but also to be inspired and claim historical precedents. Thus, revolutions appear as unique moments of rethinking the past.
