The article explores the intersection of history and politics in the works of French philosopher Jacques Rancie`re, by focusing on the collectively edited journal Les Re ́voltes logiques (1975–1985). It argues that the historiographic project of Les Re ́voltes logiques took up specific forms of counter-knowledge that were embedded in radical left-wing politics of their day. It further traces both the engagement with historiography and the role of history in Rancie`re’s later work after the dissolution of the journal. Its conclusion looks at certain shared interests between some of Rancie`re’s themes and some recent writing of social history.
