Proche-Orient et conscience historique. Entretien

Abstract : According to Georges Corm, it was too early to be able to analyze and understand all the dimensions of the Arab revolts during our meeting, inscribed in the wake of his conference untitled: “The Negative Influence of the Dichotomy Orient/Occident on the Evolution of the Human Sciences”. Five domains were retained in order to understand these unexpected movements, more than unpredictable, in which women had for the first time a very important place in the public space. The course of G. Corm and its context (I), as well as the highlights noticed in two of his works (II), were privileged in the first part that unrolled in the form of a classical interview in order to allow the reader to enter the scientific approach G. Corm and the originality of his contribution, noticed specifically in two of his most recent works (2009 et 2010). From the position of History to that of Anthropology facing the present Nation-States in Europe and the Orient (III) comes out the notion of “historical void”, on which the great media systems and a number of academic analysis elaborate the problems they treat, according to G. Corm, so much so that there is no depth in the attempt of evalua-tion of the complexity of a situation; this brief passage constitute a kind of bridge between the first and second part of our meeting – which slowly took on the turn of an interview/exchange on two successive themes: imaginary fracture between the Orient and the Occident, secularism, Mediterranean (IV ), then around the Historical subject (V).
