The academic system in American society by Alain Touraine( Book )

34 editions published between 1972 and 2004 in 3 languages and held by 1,038 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although the American system of higher education has been concerned with developing its own unity as a social institution, this book demonstrates that the system has always remained sensitive to three societal factors. There are the changing needs of society; the struggles for control over the sources of culture, knowledge and power within society, and the efforts made by society to repress or institutionalize the class conflicts that emerge from these struggles.

What is democracy? by Alain Touraine( Book )

47 editions published between 1994 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 788 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this sequel to A Critique of Modernity, Alain Touraine questions the social and cultural content of democracy today. At a time when state power is being increasingly eroded by the economic might of transnational capital, what possible value can we ascribe to a democratic idea that is defined merely as a set of guarantees against the totalitarian state? If democracy is to survive in the post-communist world, Touraine argues, it must accomplish two urgent goals: It must somehow protect the power of the nation-state at the same time as it limits that power (for only the state has sufficient means to counterbalance the global corporate wielders of money and information); and it must reconcile social diversity with social unity and individual liberty with integration

Critique de la modernité by Alain Touraine( Book )

78 editions published between 1992 and 2015 in 6 languages and held by 537 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Une critique de la modernité qui cherche à en sauver (reformuler)) l'idée puisque "le sujet ne peut pas se dissoudre dans la post-modernité". L'auteur rappelle d'abord le triomphe des conceptions rationalistes de la modernité. Puis il suit la destruction de cette idée de la modernité, dans la pensée et les pratiques sociales. Dans une troisième partie, qui peut se lire en premier, l'auteur présente ses idées sur la modernité comme relation tendue entre la Raison et le Sujet, la rationalisation et la subjectivation, entre l'esprit de la Renaissance et celui de la Réforme, la science et la liberté (cf. la présentation très claire et accessible, p. 11-17)

Coincé entre le vertige qu'inspire le marché mondial et la logique du repli sur les acquis, l'homme n'est plus citoyen mais sujet, un individu à la fois soucieux de son épanouissement personnel et de son insertion dans le monde de la technique et de la production. Et ce sujet appelle la mise en oeuvre d'une société multiculturelle fondée sur la reconnaissance de l'autre et de ses différences

Thinking differently by Alain Touraine( Book )

18 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and French and held by 346 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In his previous books Alain Touraine analysed the great changes that have transformed our personal and collective lives; in this new book he shows that we need to transform our ways of thinking about these changes. The very idea of society is in crisis: globalization and the liberation of desires from taboos have led to the collapse of the old social order. In our societies today, good and evil can no longer be defined by institutions; self-awareness is more important than the awareness of rules and subjects have become their own creators. Taking as his starting point a critique of what he calls the Dominant Interpretive Discourse, which tried throughout the twentieth century to impose the idea of a society without actors that was subject to various kinds of determinism (especially economic determinism), Touraine argues that the only principle that allows us to evaluate individual behaviour and social situations is the recognition of the political, social and cultural rights of all human beings, who are viewed as free and equal. The individual must be seen as a subject and treated as the cornerstone of a reconstructed sociology. Whereas some denounce individualism, the author celebrates a subjectivation that involves the defence of the rights of all against all modes of social integration. This general line of argument is made concrete through an analysis of the subordination of women, the exclusion of minorities and the difficulties young people face at school and at work. This major new book represents in many ways the culmination of twenty years of theoretical reflection which began with Critique of Modernity and which have established Touraine as one of the leading figures of contemporary social thought. -- Back cover
