Presentation

The Revue d’histoire des sciences humaines (RHSH) was founded in 1999. This bi-annual journal has, since 2015, been edited by Publications de la Sorbonne, now Éditions de la Sorbonne, and it champions a transversal approach to the history of human sciences, without neglecting the disciplinary operations that have adorned its development. Rather than endorse the canons and traditions, it seeks to reposition them in their historical configuration by varying the levels of analysis. The scope of the journal includes human sciences in a very broad sense, including what we currently refer to as human sciences and social sciences, as well as the relationship between these and the mathematical and natural sciences. The journal is not restricted to a particular geographical area, but instead attempts to bring to light the variety of national configurations, as well as how this knowledge was transnationally exported and reappropriated. The journal publishes articles focusing on the history of the human sciences from the 18th to the 21st centuries, the period that witnessed its emergence and its affirmation with science in general.

Each issue consists of a themed feature, documentary analysis, varia and a section entitled ‘Debates, works in progress and book reviews’ that aims to renew the methods and questionnaires being discussed.
