"Complications: Communism and the Dilemmas of Democracy ties together the central concerns of the work of Claude Lefort over the past half-century. A pivotal figure in French thought, Lefort studied under Maurice Merleau-Ponty, cofounded with Cornelius Castoriadis the influential journal Socialisme ou Barbarie, and famously engaged in a heated debate with Jean-Paul Sartre over the Soviet Union and Communist parties in the West. He has influenced generations of political thinkers and throughout his career has offered invaluable leftist, non-Communist critiques of both liberalism and Communism."--Jacket

Contrairement à beaucoup d'intellectuels de sa génération, Claude Lefort peut se réclamer d'une rare constance dans l'analyse des régimes communistes, qu'il qualifiait de totalitaires dès 1956. Les textes publiés en 1981 font état de sa conviction que l'effondrement du communisme est inévitable. Ce jugement procède d'une vision politique des sociétés modernes

Machiavelli in the making by Claude Lefort ( Book )
3 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 167 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In Machiavelli in the Making, the influential French scholar and public intellectual Claude Lefort introduces a wholly novel interpretation of Niccoló Machiavelli's oeuvre, revealing in the Florentine's thought a thoroughly modern concept of the political with implications for "our experience of politics here and now." Lefort extricates Machiavelli's thought from the dominant interpretations of Machiavelli as the founder of "objective" political science, which, having liberated itself from the religious and moralizing tendencies of medieval political reflection, attempts to arrive at a realistic discourse on the operations of raw power. Lefort ultimately finds that Machiavelli's discourse opens the "place of the political," which had previously been occupied by theology and morality. An essential contribution to the ongoing reassessment of Machiavelli's significance, Machiavelli in the Making also stands as a crucial text for the understanding of Lefort's later writings on democracy and totallitarianism
