Overview

Where do ideas fit in historical accounts that take an expansive, global view of human movements and events? Teaching intellectual history scholars to incorporate transnational perspectives into their work, while also advising them how to handle the challenges and controversies that may arise, this original resource explains the concepts, practice, concerns, and promise of “global intellectual history,” featuring essays from leading scholars on an array of approaches taking shape across the discipline.

Contributors explore the different ways one can think about the production, dissemination, and circulation of “global” ideas and whether global intellectual history can indeed produce legitimate narratives. They discuss how intellectuals and ideas fit within current conceptions of global frames and processes of globalization and proto-globalization, and they distinguish between ideas of the global and those of the transnational and identify what each contributes to intellectual history. An essential guide, this collection sets crucial conceptual coordinates for readers eager to map an emerging area of study.

Editorial Reviews

David Armitage

As intellectual history takes a global turn, the field urgently needs inspiring examples and salutary skepticism. Global Intellectual History provides both in equal measure through multiple models drawn from exceptionally broad expanses of both time and space. The result is a milestone, a collection of the first importance for global historians and intellectual historians alike.
