La criminalistique : Une leçon inédite de Gabriel Tarde au Collège de France (1902-1903)

Abstract : The publication of the writings of Gabriel Tarde (1843-1902) left little hope for the discovery of unpublished works. Elected in 2001 to the Chair of Modern Philosophy at the Collège de France, Gabriel Tarde taught his last full year of courses during the year 1902-1903. The notes on the course on “Penal Philosophy” have never been published. This document is of considerable interest for the study of Tarde's work and thought. This is indeed the last course Tarde gave on Criminology. These notes can therefore be considered the last expression of his thinking on this question. This context makes the content of this first lesson of "Criminalistique” all the more interesting. What meaning does Tarde give to this word? What is the epistemology of this science? His method? How does he include it in his work? In order to gain insight on these questions, we offer here a complete transcription of the notes which served as support for this unpublished lesson.
