Summary/Abstract: The contributions that follow the present introduction illustrate successive phases of Pierre Goubert’s life course, the development of his intellectual interests from various perspectives and illuminate his strong personality, pioneering research, achievements, books, heritage and followers. Five colleagues comment and discuss his views and writings and what the author of a master piece entitled “Beauvais and the Beauvaisis from 1600 to 1730. A contribution to the social history of seventeenth-century France” (1960) brought to History as a discipline, to their generation in particular and to the academic world in general, opening a way to global historical approach. One of Goubert’s former doctoral students presents Pierre Goubert as a generous and inspired master. His son, my colleague from the Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales, Centre de Recherches Historiques (Paris), offers a unique view of Goubert as a family breadwinner and father of two children. A list of references, including translations, is proposed to the reader of this bunch of contributions dedicated to “Pierre Goubert (1915-2012) beyond the Beauvaisis.”
