Political economy and liberalism in France : the contributions of Frédéric Bastiat by Robert Leroux( Book )

15 editions published between 2010 and 2016 in English and held by 161 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this book is to provide a comprehensive analysis of the work of Frédéric Bastiat (1801-1850), one of the towering intellectual figures of nineteenth century France. More than anyone else of his time, Bastiat personified the struggle of liberalism and science against socialism and utopia. Between 1844 in 1850, his campaign for the idea of liberty and his commitment to the discipline of political economy made him one of the most vigorous champions of economic liberalism in France. Bastiat put forth one of the most ambitious interpretations of the liberalism of his time, one that e

French liberalism in the 19th century : an anthology by Robert Leroux( )

15 editions published between 2012 and 2016 in English and held by 124 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Political and economic liberalism has generally been considered to be of marginal import in France, but at an intellectual level, it is a different story. An exploration of the history of French economic thought shows how a rich intellectual tradition developed during the nineteenth century, which has been previously neglected in English language studies of French thinking. In this important new collection, Robert Leroux brings together key works, both from widely regarded and lesser known authors, whose thinking constituted the core of a singular intellectual movement. These include such f

Antoine-Augustin Cournot as a sociologist by Robert Leroux( )

6 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 88 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The thinking of Antoine-Augustin Cournot has inspired a growing literature in economy and epistemology, but as of yet, his sociological thought has not been explicitly discussed and contextualized within the discipline. From the 1850s to the end of the 1870s, Cournot contributed significantly to the history of French sociology, particularly in the development of one essential idea: that forms of knowledge are intimately linked to the progress of reason. Philosophy, therefore, becomes interested in the development of the sciences, evolving as they do from the process of rationalizing human societies. Cournot's comparative-historical sociology, 'rediscovered' especially by Gabriel Tarde in the 20th century, seeks to understand how a macro-sociological trend can depend on the aggregation of a host of individual decisions and actions, or to discern a certain order out of apparent chaos"--Back cover
Cournot sociologue by Robert Leroux( Book )

7 editions published in 2004 in French and held by 83 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Le nom d'Antoine-Augustin Cournot (1801-0877) est aujourd'hui bien connu des économistes et des philosophes, mais très peu des sociologues. Pourtant son #x9C;uvre diversifiée comporte une réflexion sociologique féconde et originale. Cet ouvrage cherche à la dépister, à l'analyser, et à la contextualiser. Cournot sociologue soulève des questions essentielles qui intéressent pleinement la sociologie naissante: il réfléchit sur la place de la biologie dans l'étude du social, pose le problème du rôle de la psychologie, s'interroge sur l'application de la statistique, cherche à dégager une théorie du hasard, s'interroge enfin sur la rationalisation des sociétés humaines. Mieux: il se demande, tout simplement, qu'est-ce qu'une société? Est-ce l'agrégation d'une multitude de consciences particulières, ou est-ce, au contraire, une réalité autonome, distincte de ses parties, qui a sa propre vie? Cournot n'a certes pas apporté de réponse définitive à cette question mais, comme beaucoup de sociologues classiques, il l'a posée avec perspicacité
Sociologie du Québec en mutation : aux origines de la Révolution tranquille by Jean-Charles Falardeau( )

4 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in French and held by 70 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

« Jean-Charles Falardeau a beaucoup écrit sur la société canadienne-française, devenue la société québécoise dans les années 1960. Moins connus que ses écrits en sociologie de la littérature, les textes réunis dans cet ouvrage ont conservé une grande pertinence pour comprendre et interpréter l'avènement de la Révolution tranquille. Y sont rassemblés 24 articles portant sur les thèmes que Falardeau a traités dans la première moitié de sa carrière universitaire. Les articles retenus mettent en relief la conception que Falardeau se faisait de la sociologie comme science à part entière et témoignent de l'originalité de ses vues sur cette discipline, encore d'une étonnante pertinence. S'y retrouvent aussi ses analyses sur la paroisse, institution marquante du Canada français, ainsi que ses études sur le monde rural et sur l'urbanisation qui a conduit vers le Québec contemporain. »--

Lire Bastiat : science sociale et libéralisme by Robert Leroux( Book )

6 editions published in 2008 in French and held by 58 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"L'œuvre de Frédéric Bastiat (1801-1850) a été, dès le milieu du dix-neuvième siècle, l'objet de multiples malentendus et d'interprétations contradictoires. D'un côté, on l'a souvent réduite à sa dimension polémique, à son style engagé ou encore à quelques formules chocs ; de l'autre, on a parfois souligné la portée cognitive de ses thèses en dégageant notamment leur influence sur la science économique moderne. Cet ouvrage, dont le propos est de restituer la cohérence et l'unité d'une pensée en apparence éparse, insiste sur la double contribution de Bastiat à la fois à l'essor de la science sociale et au développement du libéralisme"--Page 4 of cover
L'âge d'or du libéralisme français anthologie : XIXe siècle( Book )

3 editions published in 2014 in French and held by 49 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cet ouvrage, qui couvre plus d{u2019}un siècle d{u2019}histoire intellectuelle, retrace les succès et les échecs du libéralisme français, en laissant la parole à ceux qui, de Benjamin Constant à Gustave de Molinari, l{u2019}ont façonné et ont contribué à le diffuser. Cet important courant de pensée, qui prend un essor considérable au lendemain de la Révolution française, est souvent connu de manière superficielle, réduit à quelques auteurs célèbres. En réalité, les grands changements du temps ont eu d{u2019}innombrables témoins chez les libéraux. Provenant de différents horizons intellectuels, ils ont défini les principes d{u2019}une société libre ; d{u2019}où leur acharnement à combattre le protectionnisme, le socialisme ou le communisme. Utopistes, les libéraux l{u2019}ont sans doute été, dans la mesure où ils ont mis leur doctrine au service d{u2019}une société à faire et à définir. Mais ils ne se sont pas limités à contester l{u2019}ordre social et à appeler de leurs voeux diverses réformes ; ils ont aussi largement contribué au développement des sciences sociales et de plusieurs disciplines comme l{u2019}économie politique, l{u2019}histoire, la sociologie, la philosophie et même la littérature. Chacun des textes est accompagné d{u2019}une présentation biographique de son auteur, puis de quelques commentaires sur la nature de son apport à la pensée libérale. C{u2019}est, au total, pas moins de quatre générations de penseurs qui se tendent la main à travers le xixe siècle et qui off rent ainsi une vue d{u2019}ensemble de ce qu{u2019}on peut appeler L{u2019}âge d{u2019}or du libéralisme français{OCLCbr#BB}
