What does it mean to narrate the self? Is there a 'self' to be narrated? What form should such narratives or writings take? The authors of the sixteen essays collected in this volume use a variety of approaches to study a broad range of what are now called 'ego-documents' from the Renaissance to the beginning of the nineteenth century. From them it emerges that 'the self' is not an acknowledged fact, but rather a historical process, which is neither linear nor stable.
Que peut bien signifier l' criture de soi l' poque moderne ? Y a-t-il m me un moi d crire et raconter ? Quelles formes peuvent prendre de tels r cits ? Les seize contributions rassembl es dans ce volume cherchent r pondre ces questions en interrogeant, suivant diverses approches, une grande vari t de textes de la Renaissance la R volution, relevant de ce que l'historiographie tend nommer des ego-documents . A travers l' tude de ces textes, il appara t que le moi, loin d' tre un donn universel, est le fruit d'un processus historique qui n'est ni lin aire ni stable.
