The Ecole des Hautes Etudes Sociales organized a course of lectures during the academic session 1912-13 entitled Le problème religieux dans la pensée contemporaine. The opening lecture, with the same title, was given by Dominique Parodi. Not long after the end of the course it was published in the July issue of the Revue de métaphysique et de morale, and a footnote lists the surnames of those who had also given lectures (Parodi 1913:511). Spelt out and grouped according to generation, the course's four senior contributors, in their sixties or mid- to late-fifties, were Emile Boutroux (b.1845), Emile Boirac (b.1851), Alfred Loisy (b.1857) and Emile Durkheim (b.1858). The nine younger contributors, all in their forties, were Georges Dumas (b.1866), Georges Dwelshauvers (b.1866), Wilfred Monod (b.1867), Léon Brunschvicg (b.1869), Félix Le Dantec (b.1869), Edouard Le Roy (b.1870), Dominique Parodi (b.1870) and Henri Delacroix (b.1873).
