The Riddle of the Universe by Ernst Haeckel
(“AUTHOR’S PREFACE “THE present study of the monistic philosophy is * intended for thoughtful readers of every condition who are united in an honest search for the truth. An intensification of this effort of man to attain a knowledge of the truth is one of the most salient features of the nineteenth century. That is easily explained, in the first place, by the immense progress of science, especially in its most important branch, the history of humanity; it is due, in the second place, to the open contradiction that has developed during the century between”.

Screening Youth by Gilles Viennot, Romain Chareyron
Youth has been represented on screen for decades and has informed many directors’ visual, narrative and social perspectives, but there has not been a body of work addressing the richness and complexity of this topic in a French and Francophone context.

Showing how the topic of ‘youth’ has inspired filmmakers to explore and reinvent common tropes associated with young people, the book also addresses how the representation of youth can be used to mirror the tensions – political, social, religious, economic or cultural – that agitate a society at a given time in its history.
