  • Charles Austin Beard (November 27, 1874 – September 1, 1948) was, with Frederick Jackson Turner, one of the most influential American historians of the first half of the 20th century. For a while he was a history professor at Columbia University but his influence came from hundreds of monographs, textbooks and interpretive studies in both history and political science. His works included a radical re-evaluation of the founding fathers of the United States, who he believed were motivated more by economics than by philosophical principles. Beard's most influential book, An Economic Interpretation of the U.S. Constitution (1913), has been the subject of great controversy ever since its publication. While frequently criticized for its methodology and conclusions, it was responsible for a wide-ranging reinterpretation of American history of the founding era. He was also the co-author with his wife Mary Beard of The Rise of American Civilization (1927), which had a major influence on American historians. An icon of the progressive school of historical interpretation, his reputation suffered during the Cold War era when the assumption of economic class conflict was dropped by most historians. Richard Hofstadter concluded in 1968: "Today Beard's reputation stands like an imposing ruin in the landscape of American historiography. What was once the grandest house in the province is now a ravaged survival". Hofstadter, nevertheless, praised Beard, saying he was "foremost among the American historians of his or any generation in the search for a usable past". (en)
  • Charles Austin Beard (27 de noviembre de 1874, Knightstown, Indiana - 1 de septiembre de 1948, New Haven, Connecticut) fue un historiador estadounidense. Impartió clases en la Universidad Columbia de 1904 a 1917 y co-fundó la New School de Nueva York en 1919. Es más bien recordado por sus estudios iconoclastas sobre el desarrollo de las instituciones políticas estadounidenses, que enfatizan la dinámica del conflicto y cambio socioeconómico, analizando los factores motivantes de la fundación de estas entidades. Entre sus obras se encuentran An Economic Interpretation of the Constitution of the United States de 1913, donde afirma que la Constitución de los Estados Unidos de América fue formulada para servir a los intereses económicos de los "Padres Fundadores"; The Economic Origins of Jeffersonian Democracy de 1915; y en coautoría con su esposa Mary Ritter Beard, The Rise of American Civilization de 1927.

Il proposa une nouvelle interprétation de l'œuvre des Pères fondateurs des États-Unis en avançant que ces derniers étaient davantage motivés par leurs intérêts économiques que par les principes philosophiques.
