PUF, Les Littéraires
Author: Richard Scholar Thomas Constantinesco
The first full-length study of the je-ne-sais-quoi and its fortunes in early modern Europe. The book describes the rise and fall of the expression as a noun and as a topic of debate, examines its cluster of meanings, and uncovers the scattered traces of its ‘pre-history’.
