    An Intellectual History of Liberalism.Pierre Manent - 2019 - Princeton University Press.
    Highlighting the social tensions that confront the liberal tradition, Pierre Manent draws a portrait of what we, citizens of modern liberal democracies, have become. For Manent, a discussion of liberalism encompasses the foundations of modern society, its secularism, its individualism, and its conception of rights. The frequent incapacity of the morally neutral, democratic state to further social causes, he argues, derives from the liberal stance that political life does not serve a higher purpose. Through quick-moving, highly synthetic essays, he explores (...)

    Main Currents in Sociological Thought: Volume One: Montesquieu, Comte, Marx, de Tocqueville: The Sociologists and the Revolution of 1848.Raymond Aron & Pierre Manent - 2018 - Routledge.
    This is the first part of Raymond Aron's landmark two-volume study of the sociological tradition¿arguably the definitive work of its kind. More than a work of reconstruction, Aron's study is, at its deepest level, an engagement with the very question of modernity: How did the intellectual currents which emerged in the eighteenth century shape the modern political and philosophical order? With scrupulous fairness, Aron examines the thought and arguments of the major social thinkers to discern how they answered this question. (...)

    Cours familier de philosophie politique.Pierre Manent - 2001 - Paris: Fayard.
    Comment nous orienter dans le monde? C'est la philosophie politique qui peut le mieux nous y aider, répond Pierre Marient. Son livre propose un tableau raisonné du monde actuel. Il est, par là même, nécessairement aussi une réflexion sur le siècle écoulé, sur les guerres et les totalitarismes qui en ont occupé une si grande part. L'auteur s'efforce de saisir les articulations selon lesquelles notre monde s'ordonne et se meut. Il considère d'abord notre régime - la démocratie; puis notre forme (...)

    Modern Liberty and its Discontents.Pierre Manent (ed.) - 1998 - Rowman & Littlefield Publishers.
    In this book, distinguished French philosopher Pierre Manent addresses a wide range of subjects, including the Machiavellian origins of modernity, Tocqueville's analysis of democracy, the political role of Christianity, the nature of totalitarianism, and the future of the nation-state. As a whole, the book constitutes a meditation on the nature of modern freedom and the permanent discontents which accompany it. Modern Liberty and its Discontents is both an important contribution to an understanding of modern society, and a significant contribution to (...)

    La politique et l'âme: autour de Pierre Manent.Giulio De Ligio, Jean-Vincent Holeindre, Daniel J. Mahoney & Pierre Manent (eds.) - 2014 - Paris: CNRS éditions.
    Depuis près de quarante ans, Pierre Manent trace une voie originale et féconde. Ses livres interrogent les formes politiques qui donnent sens à l'expérience historique, de la cité grecque aux nations européennes, en passant par l'Empire romain et l'Eglise chrétienne. Cet ouvrage, le premier entièrement consacré à Pierre Manent, aborde les grands thèmes de son oeuvre, autour de trois axes: la philosophie, la politique et la religion. Il examine également les principales étapes de la pensée politique : Aristote, Machiavel, Pascal, (...)

    Penser l'homme: treize études sur Jean-Jacques Rousseau.Claude Habib, Pierre Manent & Christophe Litwin (eds.) - 2013 - Paris: Classiques Garnier.
    Rousseau a bouleversé la compréhension du phénomène humain. Treize études prennent la mesure de cette révolution théorique qui touche l'image de soi, l'idée du bien, les attentes politiques, la perception de la société. Chacune scrute la radicalité de la science de l'homme qu'il a inaugurée.

    La loi naturelle et les droits de l'homme.Pierre Manent - 2018 - Paris: PUF.
    La doctrine des droits de l'homme est devenue l'unique référence légitime pour ordonner le monde humain et orienter la vie sociale et individuelle. Dès lors, la loi politique n'a plus d'autre raison d'être que de garantir les droits humains, toujours plus étendus. La loi ne commande plus, ne dirige plus, n'oriente plus : elle autorise. Elle ne protège plus la vie des institutions – qu'il s'agisse de la nation, de la famille, de l'université –, mais donne à tout individu l'autorisation (...)

    Metamorphoses of the City.Pierre Manent - 2013 - Harvard University Press.
    What is the best way to govern ourselves? The history of the West has been shaped by the struggle to answer this question, according to Pierre Manent. A major achievement by one of Europe's most influential political philosophers, Metamorphoses of the City is a sweeping interpretation of Europe's ambition since ancient times to generate ever better forms of collective self-government, and a reflection on what it means to be modern. Manent's genealogy of the nation-state begins with the Greek city-state, the (...)

    Natural law and human rights: toward a recovery of practical reason.Pierre Manent - 2020 - Notre Dame, Indiana: University of Notre Dame Press. Edited by Ralph C. Hancock.
    Pierre Manent is one of France's leading political philosophers. This first English translation of his profound and strikingly original book La loi naturelle et les droits de l'homme is a reflection on the central question of the Western political tradition. In six chapters, developed from the prestigious Étienne Gilson lectures at the Institut Catholique de Paris, and in a related appendix, Manent contemplates the steady displacement of the natural law by the modern conception of human rights. He aims to restore (...)

    Seeing things politically: interviews with Benedicte Delorme-Montini.Pierre Manent - 2014 - South Bend, Indiana: St. Augustine's Press. Edited by Bénédicte Delorme-Montini.
    These autobiographical and philosophical essays, in the form of expertly probing interviews, provide a superb introduction to the work of one of the most significant contemporary political philosophers and a marvelously readable perspective on the French intellectual and political arenas from the 1970s to the present. Those already familiar with Manent's work will find an indispensable reflection on his transition from the critique of modernity brilliantly represented in his earlier books (most notably Tocqueville and the Nature of Democracy and The (...)
