"Liberté de l'esprit" : Un mensuel gaulliste

Abstract : "Liberté de l'esprit" was conceived by de Gaulle and Malraux as a link between the Gaullist movement and the intellectual world. Claude Mauriac, a journalist, a critic, with a rich network, was the ideal man to carry out this objective. He was both chief-editr and publisher of this monthly magazine, with 41 issues between february 1949 and july 1953. "Liberté de l''esprit" was more a stage of debate than the melting pot of a doctrine. More than one hundred authors, politicians and writers, participated in the monthly magazine : led-wing and right wing sensitivities, and two leading authors: André Malraux and Raymond Aron. The struggle against totalitarianism and the illustration of Gaullism were the two pillars that the magazine was built upon and it offered a wide range of literary texts given by the great authors of the time. When general de Gaulle decided to scrap the RPF, the days of the magazine were counted.
