Depuis David Hume et Adam Smith, la notion de sympathie valorise l'activite irreflechie de la sensibilite pour mieux associer l'affectivite a la formation du lien social. Mais comment envisager la maniere dont la philosophie morale ecossaise se prolonge dans les milieux qui, en France, se reclament de l'ideal republicain et du materialisme athee? C'est ce qu'invitent a redecouvrir ces Lettres sur la sympathie, que Sophie de Grouchy publie a la suite de sa traduction de la Theorie des sentiments moraux de Smith.

Cette reedition des Lettres est accompagnee de six etudes qui en eclairent la portee. Figure particulierement representative d'une generation qui, engagee dans la Revolution, se regroupe autour du cercle des ideologues, Sophie de Grouchy poursuit l' uvre des Lumieres en travaillant a fonder ce que notre modernite appellera les sciences humaines.

MEDIA REVIEWS
[...] one of the strengths of the book is its uncommon presentation of an annotated modern edition alongside associated scholarship, a combination which, in the opinion of this reader, should appear more frequently in contemporary scholarly publishing. Thus, the essays following De Grouchy's text in fact make the book accessible to those in areas other than philosophy, such as both French and English eighteenth- and nineteenth-century literature and history, translation studies, cultural studies, and women's studies.
