  1. On Justification: Economies of Worth.Luc Boltanski & Laurent Thévenot - 2006 - Princeton University Press.
    A vital and underappreciated dimension of social interaction is the way individuals justify their actions to others, instinctively drawing on their experience to appeal to principles they hope will command respect. Individuals, however, often misread situations, and many disagreements can be explained by people appealing, knowingly and unknowingly, to different principles. On Justification is the first English translation of Luc Boltanski and Laurent Thévenot's ambitious theoretical examination of these phenomena, a book that has already had a huge impact on French (...)

    Distant Suffering: Morality, Media and Politics.Luc Boltanski - 1999 - Cambridge University Press.
    Distant Suffering examines the moral and political implications for a spectator of the distant suffering of others as presented through the media. What are the morally acceptable responses to the sight of suffering on television, for example, when the viewer cannot act directly to affect the circumstances in which the suffering takes place? Luc Boltanski argues that spectators can actively involve themselves and others by speaking about what they have seen and how they were affected by it. Developing ideas in (...)

    The Sociology of Critical Capacity.Laurent Thévenot & Luc Boltanski - 1999 - European Journal of Social Theory 2 (3):359-377.
    This article argues that many situations in social life can be analyzed by their requirement for the justification of action. It is in particular in situations of dispute that a need arises to explicate the grounds on which responsibility for errors is distributed and on which new agreement can be reached. Since a plurality of mutually incompatible modes of justification exists, disputes can be understood as disagreements either about whether the accepted rule of justification has not been violated or about (...)

  4. The Reality of Moral Expectations: A Sociology of Situated Judgement.Luc Boltanski & Laurent Thévenot - 2000 - Philosophical Explorations 3 (3):208 – 231.
    The paper offers a modelling of the sense of justice as it is displayed in ordinary situated disputes. While this model accounts for a plurality of legitimate forms of evaluation which are used in the process of critique and justification, it escapes a relativism of values by demonstrating that all these forms satisfy a set of common requirements. The reasonable character of the everyday sense of justice is also anchored in a reality test involving the engagement of objects which qualify (...)

    The Left After May 1968 and the Longing for Total Revolution.Luc Boltanski - 2002 - Thesis Eleven 69 (1):1-20.
    In various European countries, the relation between `the left' and `the right' presents itself today in paradoxical form: the attenuation of the differences at the level of policy making is accompanied by the persistence, if not even strengthening, of the polarisation in terms of verbal position taking and of partisan self-description. To understand this situation, one needs to return to that which constitutes the ideological core of the opposition between left and right. The left remains marked, though not necessarily in (...)

  12. Individualismo senza libertÀ. Un approccio pragmatico al dominio.Luc Boltanski - 2010 - Società Degli Individui 37:101-120.
    In questo articolo, la questione delle istituzioni viene affrontata accogliendo gli apporti della sociologia pragmatica e delle sue analisi dell'azione in situazione, ma anche riprendendo il tema del dominio. Le istituzioni vengono concepite come le condizioni necessarie per stabilire un accordo tra soggetti dotati di punti di vista situati e inevitabilmente divergenti. D'altro canto, le stesse regole mediante cui le istituzioni assicurano la possibilitÀ dell'accordo, sono al contempo fonti di frammentazione, cioč di dominio: le istituzioni legittimano criteri e norme che (...)

    The Legitimacy of Humanitarian Actions and Their Media Representation: The Case of France.Luc Boltanski - 2000 - Ethical Perspectives 7 (1):3-16.
    The question of humanitarian action appeared in France in the public arena at the beginning of the 1990s, almost twenty years after the creation of `Médecins sans frontières' by Bernard Kouchner and Xavier Emmanuelli. The humanitarian debate in France developed in a political context marked by two essential features: on the one hand, the bureaucratization of humanitarian actions with its own secretary of state, an office occupied by Bernard Kouchner between 1988 and 1993 and, on the other hand, the war (...)
