    a| Annotation b| Face aux dEfis - entre autres politiques - auxquels sont confrontEs diffErents pays europEens, les chercheurs dix-huitiEmistes ont souhaitE revenir sur des expressions anciennes de valeurs partagEes et les interrogations passEes sur des questions qui restent souvent d'actualitE. Au SiEcle des LumiEres, nombre d'hommes et de femmes de lettres ont envisagE l'avenir du continent en particulier pour entEriner leur souhait de garantir la paix en Europe. Les textes, rEunis dans cette anthologie, et signEs des grands Ecrivains du temps (Rousseau, Montesquieu, Voltaire, Kant, Hume ou encore StaEl), comme d'oubliEs de l'histoire, prEsentent, avec quelques excursus chronologiques (de Sully A Hugo) les rEflexions de penseurs d'un dix-huitiEme siEcle aux bornes chronologiques Etendues - l'Emergence et la chute de l'Empire engendrent des bouleversements nombreux -, sur l'Europe, son histoire, sa diversitE, mais aussi sur ce qu'ont en commun les nations qui composent, dans leur variEtE, un ensemble gEographique. Ils mettent en Evidence les origines historiques d'un projet d'union europEenne, le souhait de consolider les liens du continent avec le Maghreb ou la Turquie, l'importance accordEe au commerce et les inquiEtudes suscitEes par les sursauts de l'histoire, mais aussi l'espoir placE dans les gEnErations futures. La SociEtE franCaise d'Etude du XVIIIe siEcle, l'UniversitE d'Augsburg, l'UniversitE d'Oxford ont gEnEreusement contribuE A la publication de ce volume. In view of the challenges--many of which are political--that different European countries are currently facing, scholars who work on the 18th century have compiled this anthology which includes earlier recognitions of common values and past considerations of questions which often remain pertinent nowadays. During the Enlightenment, many men and women of letters envisaged the continent's future in particular when stressing their hope that peace could be secured in Europe. The texts gathered here, and signed by major thinkers of the time (Rousseau, Montesquieu, Voltaire, Kant, Hume or StaEl for instance), as well as by writers history has forgotten, present the reflections, with a couple of chronological extensions (from Sully to Victor Hugo) of authors from the long eighteenth century--the French Empire and the fall of Napoleon generated numerous upheavals--on Europe, its history, its diversity, but also on what the nations, which, in all their diversity, make up a geographical unit, have in common. They show the historical origins of the project of a European union, the desire to consolidate the continent's ties to the Maghreb or to Turkey, the importance granted to commerce and the worries engendered by history's convulsions, but also the hope vested in future generations. The SociEtE franCaise d'Etude du XVIIIe siEcle, Augsburg University and the University of Oxford have generously contributed towards the publication of this volume.
