Free read L'ancien régime et la Révolution Alexis de Tocqueville ☆ 5 Free download Free download L'ancien régime et la Révolution ç PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free A Tocueville scholar and an award winning translator Arthur Goldhammer is uniuely ualified for the task In his Introduction Jon Elster draws on his recent work to lay out the structure of Tocueville' argu. Certainly one of the very greatest works of political philosophy in some ways better than Democracy in America Tocueville was fascinated by the phenomenon of social euality after centuries of feudalism and he goes so far as to say that the outward political revolutions and charters of the new post Enlightenment order were already essentially complete as social conditions before these revolutions ever took place The preparation for the French Revolution was simply that men notice men were nearly alike then they had ever been before Hence they simply outgrew their feudal institutions or already had outgrown them and that this process was complete under the ancien regime not under the revolutionary government The political revolts and events historians associte with the revolution are simply not that important because the event was overdetermined If it had not happened this way it would have happened some other way hence any given way though sufficient is hardly necessary to the political philosopher It s a daring thesis It may even be true It may even continue to be true and predictive as Democracy in America was and is The people are the same the arbitrary political and economic differences and privileges appear and the easy they are to strike down with a coup de main to the system from wherever uarter or circumstance that blow may come Tocueville expresses the view that essentially the political stage of the revolution was an act of piue by the new eual man a proto middle class man against such arbitrary privilege of the aristocracy long since degenerated into inbred fops The American revolution Simply the piue of the colonists who already considered themselves Englishmen and were shocked to find out they were not Rejection always precedes anger and revenge What can we learn today from this important and oh so delightfully dangerous wicked book And there are so few truly dangerous books Perhaps our own aristocracy of merit our meritocracy without merit in other words is finally ready to fall The one crucial lynchpin is do people see those possessors of letters behind their names and privileged positions in the institutional structure as truly deserving the ongoing mystiue and fascination that sustained the old feudal aristocracy for centuries or will that meritocracy be revealed as profoundly regressive and unfair or worse will the meritocrats simply be unmasked as no smarter or better than anyone else Tocueville suggests that just such a failure of legitimacy inevitably follows the realization of a profoundly eual social condition suddenly unmasked in this way If only there were some way to do this convincingly for all to see the political and economic reforms and all the rest would be easy to accomplish Really exciting stuff to be recommended to all young revolutionaries

Free read L'ancien régime et la Révolution Alexis de Tocqueville ☆ 5 Free download Free download L'ancien régime et la Révolution ç PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free This new translation of an undisputed classic aims to be both accurate and readable Tocueville's subtlety of style and profundity of thought offer a challenge to readers as well as to translators As both. To those who study it as an isolated phenomenon the French Revolution can but seem a dark and sinister enigma only when we view it in the light of the events preceding it can we grasp its true significance And similarly without a clear idea of the old order its laws its vices its prejudices its shortcomings and its greatness it is impossible to comprehend the history of the sixty years following its fall p227The Old Regime and the French Revolution written in 1856 is a short book just 206 pages in this edition plus an appendix and endnotes with a contemporary audience in mind Despite this Tocueville s insights and understanding mean that the book is still interesting and provides a model for thinking about revolutions as a wholePart of his intention was to take issue with interpretations of the revolution current in his own time and also to address what he felt were short comings in French political life Primarily the lack of political liberties and the absence of an aristocracy or something very like it some powerful self confident group not dependant on the central authority of the government and able to resist it in the interests of the locality in which they lived and so guarantee libertyTocuevilles view was not that these deficiencies were the result of the Revolution but rather that they and the Revolution itself were the result of long term trends in French history Tocueville was interested in the longue duree long before the annales school His final conclusion is that given the long term tendencies in French history the Revolution was not a sinister enigma but a foregone conclusion Tocueville s key to understanding this was to grasp the mentalite of the pre revolutionary generations Once you are in tune with the Zeitgeist the paradoxes of the pre revolutionary period are resolved This is why the book is valuable What Tocueville is doing is taking down and smashing a simple mental model to explain revolutions in their social and historical contextRevolutions don t occur because the living conditions of people are harsh uite the contrary They occur in his view in times when living conditions have been improving p196 Countries in which serfdom was a complete system did not have revolutions it was the very fact that there were only nonsensical remnants that rankled the peasantry pp52 61 It is not the extent of arbitrary power that is resented but its inconsistency It is not that the state is hated but rather that the idea is wide spread that its power can be used effectively When Tocueville read through the cahiers of complaints submitted to the Estates General what he found was that cumulatively if you followed all the advice and recommendations then the whole of the Old Regime would be swept awayIn other words from Tocueville s perspective it was no surprise that the Soviet Union collapsed under Gorbachev when living conditions were reasonably good but the government made clear through its actions that the way it had been running things was deeply flawed and invited public criticism while it stood firm under Stalin whose government was harsh brutal and did not admit to shortcomingsThat is perhaps one of Tocuevilles central paradoxes that the way that the government itself tried to change and reform undermined faith and confidence in the regime The limits of its effective power were unclear In his image it groped forward until it met opposition before which it would withdraw p133Tocueville is surprised that the writers on economic issues under the Old Regime looked to China as their model of an ideal state But taking into account that impressionistic image of an uncertain hesitant government this makes sense as China was at least in how educated opinion in Eighteenth Century France understood it a uniuely self assured and stable authority wisely governed thanks to a class of civil servants selected through competitive examinations There an articulate body of opinion that did not seek to increase political liberty but instead sought to increase the power and jurisdiction of the central authority p50 and so we should not be taken aback to find that one of the results of the breakdown of the authority of the Old Regime was the creation of a stronger regime that built on the existing centralising tendencies with the result that since 89 the administrative system has always stood firm and amid the debacles of political systemsThe same duties were performed by the same civil servants whose practical experience kept the nation on an even keel through the worst political storms pp219 220 His key point being that the new regime is built out of the material of the old regime and was not an complete and absolute break with the pastWhat strikes Tocueville as new and different about the French revolution is that it was not restricted to France The French Revolution though ostensibly political in origin functioned on the lines and assumed many of the aspects of a religious revolution p42 It looked abroad and sought converts beyond its boarders It had a gospel based on natural and universal principles in his words and sought to propagate it Perhaps this is his final paradox and one that he doesn t fully explore in this exploration of the causes of the collapse of the Old Regime how the ideas developed in a specific local context were assumed to be transformative beyond the limits of France
