ABSTRACT
The author takes up common opinions among historians that the "Annales" school dominated the French social sciences in the period under scrutiny. Without diminishing the exceptional importance and the symbolic significance of the learned milieu gathered around Fernand Braudel, Pleskot points out that there were many other historical "schools" in post-war France, represented by scholars as influential as Pierre Renouvin or Roland Mousnier, not to mention the popularity of reprinted works of eighteenth and nineteenth century historians. Moreover, the most important "Annales" institution, the 6th Section of the Ecole Practique des Hautes Etudes (later on the Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales), was a relatively small centre, which conducted research in social sciences. Pleskot is also convinced that the differences between the traditionalists and innovators of the 6th Section were not as dramatic, as it is frequently presented in literature; to the contrary, the demarcation line was often blurred. According to Pleskot the intellectual significance and radiation of the "Annales" periodical was much greater than the role of the Ecole des Hautes Etudes. The writers and the editors of that periodical enjoyed international recognition and in France, through their contacts with the media and the relative popularity of historical literature, they were able to influence the historical conscience of the society. During the discussed period the "Annales" belonged to the intellectual and humanist canon of French (and to a certain extant — global) reading.
