Summary/Abstract: The article deals with the distinctive features of the teaching literature in France and with the role of the Cartesian cult of the method, which is traditional for the French school. The text presents the contemporary debates between three main conceptions. The first one privileges the studying of certain methods of analysis of text; the second insists on the relations between literature and life; the third concentrates on the possibilities of the literature to contribute to the development of communicative and social skills. The conclusion of the article is that in spite of the modern utilitarianism, France remains a country where the literature is recognized as value in itself, which deserves to be studied independently of the practical objectives.
