Le Cénacle libanais (1946-1984) : une tribune pour une libanologie inscrite dans son espace arabe et méditerranéen

Abstract : Established in 1946 by the literature men Michel Asmar, the Lebanese Cenacle, a tribune, a rational centre, forum of meeting, exchange and edition home, it represents between 1946 and 1984 an excellent case study for describing the cultural and intellectual formation of Lebanon as of its identity, nation, people and state. Making of Lebanon a central subject as witness the title adopted by a great number of lecture organized between 1946 and 1968 ‘The edification of the Lebanese House’, the Cenacle have succeeded to present itself not only as “the expression of the Lebanese Conscience” but also as a centre of reflexion where the great value consist of creating a “Libanology” or a “Lebanese science”.“Temple of thought” (ma’bad al-fikr), the Cenacle hosts intellectuals whose task consist of specifying the needs of the Lebanese society in all field by a scientific and objective manner. Rebuilding, the “Lebanese House”, means -at the same time- building the Lebanese identity, the Lebanese myth, the Lebanese nation, the Lebanese human being, the Lebanese people, the Lebanese art, the Lebanese literature, and the Lebanese poetry. Otherwise saying, it is a realization of the “Lebanese-self”, a will for choosing, for deciding to trace a proper history for self, and also to separate itself from others history whether it is Ottoman or Arab, French or American.
