Through close readings, Jean-Michael Heimonet shows how the repeated attempts in modern society and political history to create and preserve a homogeneous society, in which its members are functions rather than individuals, are severely criticized and counteracted by the members of the Collège. The history of that counteraction is itself the history of a series of important crises in the intellectual and political landscape of the mid- to late 1930s in France.
