Abstract

Recent disciplinary reconfigurations have shifted focus from a temporal-historical explanation of social life to one designed to investigate the latter's spatial dimension. This article examines the development of various spaces in the eighteenth century—physical, social, colonized, epistemological, and esthetic—and proposes a mode of cultural analysis and of historical understanding relating to the eighteenth century that takes account of these disicplinary shifts.
