Most widely held works by Claude Lefort
The visible and the invisible; followed by working notes by Maurice Merleau-Ponty ( Book )
87 editions published between 1961 and 2010 in 5 languages and held by 1,740 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Edition de 150 pages manuscrites laissées par Merleau-Ponty à sa mort et devant constituer les premiers chapitres d'un grand ouvrage intitulé ##Le visible et l'invisible##. Elles devaient introduire à un nouveau départ pour la pensée philosophique, les concepts fondamentaux de la philosophie moderne étant considérés comme des postulats résultant eux-mêmes déjà d'une interprétation singulière du monde. Le dernier tiers du volume rassemble des notes de travail, éparses, rédigées en vue de l'oeuvre, et qui peuvent en éclairer le sens. Une substantielle postface de Claude Lefort cherche à dégager le sens qu'aurait eu ##Le visible et l'invisible## dans le parcours, interrompu, de la pensée de Merleau-Ponty

14 editions published between 1986 and 2010 in English and held by 753 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Lefort's analysis of contemporary political events are often related to a consideration of one or more of the major contributions to the history of political thought. For example, his study of the role of symbolism in modern societies is set against a study of Marx's theory of political ideology

Complications : communism and the dilemmas of democracy by Claude Lefort ( Book )
5 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 282 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"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

L'invention démocratique : les limites de la domination totalitaire by Claude Lefort ( Book )
29 editions published between 1981 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 255 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
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 )
5 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 165 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
