Unification Concept in the Early Modern France: Regulations for All the Kingdom
Publication type
General craft and manufacture regulations appeared in France in the mid-17th century, and affected the leading sectors of the economy (woollen industry, dyeing, typography, etc.), clearly reflected at achieving the professional unification and the difficulties in achieving this goal. At a certain moment of the historical development, unification becomes the efficient method to facilitate the government through the reduction of variation and the number of the controls, theirs clarity and simplicity, because of the refusal to taking into consideration historical circumstances and local conditions. It is proposed not to absolutize this long and contradictory process: it was not always historically accompanied by the systematization and was not result in a complete uniformity in all the fields that were affected. In contrast, the opposition and ignoring of common rules and new standards were evident, as the pettiness and impracticality of regulation and standardization, the efforts to obtain privileges and exemptions were successful.
