♦ Description : “Gustave Le Bon, born May 7, 1841 in Nogent-le-Rotrou and died December 13, 1931 in Marnes-la-Coquette, is a doctor, anthropologist, social psychologist and French sociologist. He is a universal, multi-faceted, multi-disciplinary thinker and author of numerous books in which he addresses behavioral disorder and crowd psychology.”
“Gustave Le Bon is a doctor, anthropologist, social psychologist and French sociologist. He studied at the Lycee of Tours, then at the Faculty of Medicine of Paris, where he obtained the title of Doctor of Medicine in 1866. He traveled Europe, Asia and North Africa between the 1860s and 1880. He wrote travel accounts, archeology and anthropology books on the civilizations of the East and participated in the organizing committee for world exhibitions.
In 1879, he made a remarkable entry into the Society of Anthropology of Paris which awarded him the following year the Godard Prize for his thesis “Anatomical and mathematical research on the laws of variation of the volume of the brain and on their relation with intelligence “. In 1888, he resigned and broke all contact with this society little open to innovative psycho-sociological approaches of Le Bon. Universal, polygraphic, writing on various fields, he is the author of many books in which he addresses the behavioral disorder and psychology of the crowds.
The Good remains a controversial personality. On the one hand, at a time when the method becomes important, his “amateurism” hinders his contemporaries such Durkheim, without it really influence his early career. On the other hand, Le Bon emerges a pseudo-racist image, which refers to “the colonial ideology of its time”. He had anti-clerical tendencies and was one of the anti-colonizers.
The Good does not support the theory of a hierarchization of civilizations, but admits differences in the stages of development, and supports the theory of German Darwinian biologist Ernst Haeckel (1834-1919). He devotes a large illustrated volume to “the Arab Civilization”, and he envisioned the coming awakening of an Africa still underdeveloped at the beginning of the twentieth century. After a mission to India, he published, in 1887, another major work, “The Civilizations of India”. He differs in this strongly from Arthur Gobineau and repeatedly denounces in his works the “myth of the Aryan race”, warning against the supremacist aims of National Socialism since 1924. “Psychology of the crowds” marked a turning in the career of the “famous doctor”. This work, published in 1895, remains the most famous today.”
