Resource description

The article looks at Braudel’s ideas of historical time, in particular how his passion for long-term continuity also constitutes an aversion to the idea of rupture or breaks in time, and his avoidance of clear periodization. At the same time, it considers the paradox that Braudel is happy to accept rupture and revolution in the context of the history of ideas.
