    Second Treatise of Government

    The Second Treatise is one of the most important political treatises ever written and one of the most far-reaching in its influence. In his provocative 15-page introduction to this edition, the late eminent political theorist C. B. Macpherson examines Locke's arguments for limited, conditional government, private property, and right of revolution and suggests reasons for the appeal of these arguments in Locke's time and since.

    The Theory of Moral Sentiments

    Best known for his revolutionary free-market economics treatise The Wealth of Nations, Adam Smith was first and foremost a moral philosopher. In his first book, The Theory of Moral Sentiments, he investigated the flip side of economic self-interest: the interest of the greater good. Smith's classic work advances ideas about conscience, moral judgement and virtue that have taken on renewed importance in business and politics.

    Du contrat social

    Paru en 1762, le Contrat social, en affirmant le principe de souveraineté du peuple, a constitué un tournant décisif pour la modernité et s'est imposé comme un des textes majeurs de la philosophie politique. Il a aussi acquis le statut de monument, plus célèbre que connu, plus révéré - ou honni - qu'interrogé. Retrouver, dans les formules fameuses et les pages d'anthologie, le mouvement de la réflexion et les questions vives qui nourrissent une oeuvre beaucoup plus problématique qu'affirmative, c'est découvrir une pensée qui se tient au plus près des préoccupations d'aujourd'hui : comment intégrer les intérêts de tous dans la détermination de l'intérêt commun ? Comment lutter contre la pente de tout gouvernement à déposséder les citoyens de la souveraineté ? Comment former en chacun ce sentiment d'obligation sans lequel le lien social se défait ?
