about

La République Naturaliste explores the explosive encounter between two foundational events in the history of contemporary science, culture, and politics: namely, the development of modern natural history collections and the world-changing conflict that was the French Revolution. Taking as its critical starting point the circulation of specimens among the scholars of Europe, the professors of the French provinces, and the natural historians of Paris, this French-language book offers deep insight into a time of great change in both society and the academy, a time when natural history was becoming institutionalized, professionalized, and specialized.
Pierre-Yves Lacour teaches in the history department at the Université Paul Valéry Montpellier, France.
