  1. Vincent Descombes (forthcoming). Y a-T-Il Un Esprit Objectif? Les Etudes Philosophiques.
    On peut comprendre l'idée hégélienne d'un esprit objectif comme celle d'une conception sociologique du langage et de l'esprit. Elle consiste à fonder le fait de la vie mentale sur la participation à des pratiques communes gouvernées par des règles sociales et par des institutions. Taylor, lorsqu'il montre comment la communication suppose des significations communes, propose une philosophie de l'esprit objectif. Une telle philosophie semble incompatible avec une autre idée défendue par Taylor: la définition herméneutique de l'homme comme l'animal qui s'interprète (...)

    Ricœur, in his Philosophy of the Will (1950), is already turning eidetic descriptions into linguistic descriptions. Therefore what is at stake between phenomenologists and analytic philosophers is not the linguistic turn as such. Rather, it is the question whether all psychological verbs are experiential verbs. The contribution of Vincent Descombes is presented as a response to the communication of Jean-Luc Petit delivered in Paris in November 2013 for the International Congress "Ricœur and Contemporary Philosophy in the English Language." A written (...)

    Je traiterai du principe de charité sous l'angle d'une réflexion sur la philosophie du sens commun. J'expliquerai d'abord ce que signifie : poser la question d'un sens commun. J'en viendrai ensuite aux diverses raisons qui ont été données d'adopter un “ principe de charité ” à l'égard des propos qui nous sont tenus par un interlocuteur.

    Selon Peter Winch,, le mental et le social sont comme les deux côtés d'une même pièce de monnaie. Autrement dit, “ les relations sociales sont des relations internes ”. En montrant que c'était là le point traité par Wittgenstein dans sa discussion sur les pratiques guidées par des règles, Winch a fait faire un pas décisif à la philosophie sociale.

    The mental and the social are ‘two sides of the same coin’. In other words, ‘social relations are internal relations’. In showing how this was the point of Wittgenstein’s discussion of the practice of ‘following a rule’, Peter Winch has made an important contribution to social philosophy.

  16. Vincent Descombes (1998). L'identification des idées. Revue Philosophique De Louvain 96 (1):86-118.
    L'intérêt considérable de la théorie de la culture défendue par Dan Sperber, dans son livre La contagion des idées, est d'expliciter plus fermement que de coutume les présupposés ontologiques d'une approche atomiste dans ce domaine. L'ethnographe présuppose qu'il y a dans le monde, non seulement des personnes, mais des idées. Comment les idées sont-elles dans le monde ? Le 'monisme ontologique' de Sperber consiste à refuser de multiplier les genres d'entités. Les idées sont donc, selon lui, des entités matérielles au (...)

    Philosophers are often asked for their views on the "meaning of the times." But how should philosophy deal with world events? And what makes a philosopher more qualified than anyone else to editorialize in the daily paper? In this book, Descombes's intention is not to offer his own reading of the signs of the times, but to interrogate modern philosophers about how they come up with the barometers they use to tell us about modern reason and the spirit of the (...)

  18. Vincent Descombes (1992). Proust: Philosophy of the Novel. Stanford University Press.
    Through the voice of the narrator of Remembrance of Things Past, Proust observes of the painter Elstir that the paintings are bolder than the artist; Elstir the painter is bolder than Elstir the theorist. This book applies the same distinction to Proust; the Proustian novel is bolder than Proust the theorist. By this the author means that the novel is philosophically bolder, that it pursues further The task Proust identifies as the writer's work: to explain life, to elucidate what has (...)

  24. Vincent Descombes (1980). Modern French Philosophy. Cambridge University Press.
    This is a critical introduction to modern French philosophy, commissioned from one of the liveliest contemporary practitioners and intended for an English-speaking readership. The dominant 'Anglo-Saxon' reaction to philosophical development in France has for some decades been one of suspicion, occasionally tempered by curiosity but more often hardening into dismissive rejection. But there are signs now of a more sympathetic interest and an increasing readiness to admit and explore shared concerns, even if these are still expressed in a very different (...)
