Ancients and Moderns dispute

Paddy Bullard has recently published an article about Voltaire, Jonathan Swift and the querelle des anciens et des modernes on the blog of the Voltaire Foundation, Oxford. The piece is here. The posting marks the publication of a new collection of essays co-edited by Paddy and Alexis Tadié, Ancients and Moderns in Europe: Comparative Perspectives.

Ancients and Moderns

The collection presents a new intellectual history of the ‘Ancients and Moderns’ dispute, in which fourteen contributors explore its manifestations across Europe in the arts and sciences, from the sixteenth to the eighteenth centuries.
