Des Lumières au Romantisme : légitimation et perception de l'irrationnel en France (1778-1828). Du positionnement des guérisseurs, illuminés, prophètes et autres visionnaires et de leur perception par les autres

Abstract : Who was never taken aback by seeing human beings look away from a difficult, rational, boring or mad reality, in order to escape toward more exciting horizons by some readings, practices or encounters able to stimulate an imagination which is populated by more pleasant and heady wild dreams? We have been more than once, all the more through eighteenth cultural century study case, particularly in its last quarter. During that crucial moment, the transition point to the nineteenth century, France and Europe embraced the rise of rational and scientific age, whose political content bring up an historic progression to an overthrow of the Throne and the Church. The main thing is to moderate that picture often presented as the result of the unequivocal speech of the Age of Enlightenment. The need of believe which drive on all the human beings was exacerbated, pursued to an unsuspected stage, by the coolness and the insensibility of a philosophical materialism, devoid of fabulous and irrational. Spontaneous and impassioned reactions, passions for phenomenon like miraculous cures, Illuminism or prophecies, can't be banished of an unsettling period, due to the existence of the unexpected but real cohabitations and imbrications.
