The ambition of the founders of Le Seuil is today intact and more useful than ever. On the strength of these convictions, Le Seuil is now at the forefront of generalist houses, present in all editorial fields: French and foreign literature, thrillers and police, human sciences, documents, spiritualities, science, youth and fine books.
The fidelity to its origins, to the mixing of ideas, the attention paid to its time have favored the renewal of the house. The spiritual dimension has been perpetuated.
The political sector reflects the struggles and contradictions of the contemporary world. The fights in favor of decolonization, the desire to capture "Immediate History" from the 1960s (Jean Lacouture then Jean-Claude Guillebaud), the support given to dissident literature from Eastern Europe (Soljenitsyne) , "Combats" by Claude Durand or even "The test of facts" by Hervé Hamon and Patrick Rotman, mark, until recently, this critical attention to political news, which confirms the intellectual investment of the house in all disciplines of the humanities.
