A propos de cet article

Translated with an introduction and notes by Mrs. Humphry Ward. [42],318 pages, frontispiece (portrait), cloth, very good. Second edition. From the preface: "In this second edition of the English translation of Amiel's Journal Intime, I have inserted a good many new passages, taken from the last French edition (Cinquieme edition, revue et augmentee)." From the Wikipedia website: "Henri Frédéric Amiel (September 27, 1821 - May 11, 1881) was a Swiss philosopher, poet and critic. Born in Geneva in 1821, he was descended from a Huguenot family driven to Switzerland by the revocation of the Edict of Nantes. Losing his parents at an early age, Amiel travelled widely, became intimate with the intellectual leaders of Europe, and made a special study of German philosophy in Berlin. In 1849 he was appointed professor of aesthetics at the academy of Geneva, and in 1854 became professor of moral philosophy. These appointments, conferred by the democratic party, deprived him of the support of the aristocratic party, which comprised nearly all the culture of the city. This isolation inspired the one book by which Amiel is still known, The Journal Intime, which, published after his death, obtained a European reputation. It was translated into English by Mrs. Humphry Ward. Although second-rate as regards productive power, Amiel's mind was of no inferior quality, and his Journal gained a sympathy that the author had failed to obtain in his life. In addition to the Journal, he produced several volumes of poetry and wrote studies on Erasmus, Madame de Stael and other writers. He died in Geneva in March 1881.". N° de réf. du libraire 19109
