Main currents in sociological thought by Raymond Aron( Book )

154 editions published between 1960 and 2019 in 5 languages and held by 2,288 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

« Parti à la recherche des origines de la sociologie moderne, j'ai abouti, en fait, à une galerie de portraits intellectuels... Je me suis efforcé de saisir l'essentiel de la pensée de ces sociologues, sans méconnaître ce que nous considérons comme l'intention spécifique de la sociologie, sans oublier non plus que cette intention était inséparable, au siècle dernier, des conceptions philosophiques et d'un idéal politique. »
The opium of the intellectuals by Raymond Aron( Book )

166 editions published between 1900 and 2017 in 9 languages and held by 2,108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Raymond Aron's 1955 masterpiece The Opium of the Intellectuals, is one of the great works of twentieth-century political reflection. Aron shows how noble ideas can slide into the tyranny of "secular religion" and emphasizes how political thought has the profound responsibility of telling the truth about social and political reality - in all its mundane imperfections and tragic complexities." "Aron explodes the three "myths" of radical thought: the Left, the Revolution, and the Proletariat. Each of these ideas, Aron shows, are ideological, mystifying rather than illuminating. He also provides a fascinating sociology of intellectual life and a powerful critique of historical determinism in the classically restrained prose for which he is justly famous."--BOOK JACKET

French political and theorist Aron (1905-83) published Paixe guerre entre les nations in 1962 in Paris to clarify and transcend the debate between rational schematics and sociological perspectives in the discipline of international relations, by arguing that the two are not contradictory but complementary. The 1966 English translation was published by Doubleday, New York. Annotation (c)2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
The imperial republic : the United States and the world, 1945-1973 by Raymond Aron( Book )

37 editions published between 1974 and 2021 in English and held by 1,501 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Imperial Republic based as it is on Raymond Aron's realist philosophy, is involved only indirectly or by implication in the disputes about moralism, revisionism, and even imperialism. Its main aim is to account for the diplomacy of the United States as it was in a special time period. Like all diplomacy, it can be explained only within the system of inter-state relations to which the protagonist belongs. United States diplomacy during the twenty- eight year period of 1945-73 is examined from strategic, political, and moral stand points were in diplomats openly declared their aim, and did they achieve it? Does the result justify accusations either of incompetence or of imperialism? Does not the reaction within the United States to a policy which had been a striking success now induce second thoughts about both the policy and its results? The imperial republic is trying to throw off its burden; once a missionary, it has lost the sense of mission; it is still capitalist, but its spoiled children no longer believe in money; it was puritan, but its cities abound in sex shops; it regards itself as scientific, yet mystical and nudist sects are common. The reader is not asked to endorse Aron's paradoxical interpretations, but to try to discover the reasons for any disagreement he may feel regarding differences in political judgment. People who have acquired the habit of thinking of the contemporary world in Manichaean terms-in terms of the reduction of whole populations to slavery by monsters, or in terms of capitalism, imperialism, or revisionism- may be out raged by a book that is not concerned with grounds for outrage and in which there are neither villains nor heroes; but rather with mixed messages by decent policymakers."--Publisher description

"Ce cours n'est et ne veut être qu'une introduction, objective je pense, à l'étude d'un problème chargé de passions politiques. Il s'adresse non au spécialiste mais à l'étudiant et à l'honnête homme. Il n'impose pas de réponses dogmatiques, il dissipe les mythes : celui d'une évolution nécessaire du capitalisme au soviétisme, celui d'une convergence fatale des deux types de société industrielle, celui du caractère homologue des diverses phases de la croissance, quelle que soit l'époque et quel que soit le régime politique."Raymond Aron

Politics and history : selected essays by Raymond Aron( Book )

30 editions published between 1978 and 2017 in English and Undetermined and held by 987 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Raymond Aron, French historian, sociologist, philosopher, and journalist, was internationally recognized as one of the great thinkers in the modern social sciences, bringing to contemporary history the insights of both philosophy and social science. This edition focuses on Aron's lifelong attempt to bridge the gap between knowledge and action and to understand the dialectical relationship between history and politics. It is an indispensable introduction to one of the most important thinkers of our century"--Page 4 of cover
De Gaulle, Israel, and the Jews by Raymond Aron( Book )

36 editions published between 1968 and 2020 in 4 languages and held by 937 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The lives of Raymond Aron and Charles de Gaulle intersected at significant moments in twentieth-century history, though they differed on many issues during World War II and over the subsequent decades. Aron, for example, distinguished between the attitude and responsibility of the Vichy government and the French Nazi collaborators in Paris, unlike de Gaulle, who regarded anyone who obeyed Marshal Petain as a traitor. In the postwar period, Aron differed from de Gaulle on a number of issues, including Algeria. But the strongest direct criticism by Aron of de Gaulle's language and policy resulted after a 1967 press conference, where he referred to Jews as "an elite people, self-assured and domineering."This comment led Aron to write DeGaulle, Israel and the Jews. Aron saw de Gaulle conflating the issues of Israel and that of French Jews, and the question of Israeli policy in 1967 and other times. He stressed the right of individuals to be, at the same time, French and Jewish, and raised the question of whether de Gaulle intended to deliver a message to the Jews in the Diaspora or simply wanted to attack those in Israel. While Aron did not accuse de Gaulle of anti-Semitism, he felt that for the first time in postwar Europe, a leader had used language that lent respectability to anti-Semitism and made it legitimate.De Gaulle, Israel and the Jews, translated from the French by John Sturrock and graced with a new introductory essay by Michael Curtis, allows us the opportunity to raise questions about de Gaulle and his policy in the Middle East. Was he anti-Semitic? What were his real attitudes and policies toward Israel, and how did they relate to his policies on the Middle East and on international affairs? This is a volume of contemporary relevance for students of political science, Middle East affairs, and international policy

Paix et guerre entre les nations by Raymond Aron( Book )

91 editions published between 1962 and 2017 in 9 languages and held by 903 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Peace and War by Raymond Aron is one of the greatest books ever written on international relations. Aron's starting point is the state of nature that exists between nations, a condition that differs essentially from the civil state that holds within political communities. Ever keeping this brute fact about the life of nations in mind and ranging widely over political history and many disciplines, Aron develops the essential analytical tools to enable us to think clearly about the stakes and possibilities of international relations. In his first section, "Theory," Aron shows that, while international relations can be mapped, and probabilities discerned, no closed, global "science" of international relations is anything more than a mirage. In the second part, "Sociology," Aron studies the many ways various subpolitical forces influence foreign policy. He emphasizes that no rigorous determinism is at work: politics--and thus the need for prudent statesmanship--are inescapable in international relations. In part three, "History," Aron offers a magisterial survey of the twentieth century. He looks at key developments that have had an impact on foreign policy and the emergence of what he calls "universal history," which brings far-flung peoples into regular contact for the first time. In a final section, "Praxeology," Aron articulates a normative theory of international relations that rejects both the bleak vision of the Machiavellians, who hold that any means are legitimate, and the naivete of the idealists, who think foreign policy can be overcome. This new edition of Peace and War includes an informative introduction by Daniel J. Mahoney and Brian C. Anderson, situating Aron's thought in a new post-Cold War context, and evaluating his contribution to the study of politics and international relations."--Provided by publisher
