Fading Liberalism: Benjamin Constant in Italy (1993-2008)

  • Abstract

Informations and abstract

Keywords: Constant, liberalism, liberal freedom, Italian debate

This review considers the renewed interest on Constant's works in the latest fifteenth years in Italy as the expression of a wider debate about liberalism and the definition of "liberal freedom". The Author criticizes those scholars who understand Constant as a "pure liberal", not compromised with the democratic tensions of the revolutionary period, and to read his discourse under the light of problems and categories which are peculiar of the contemporary debate.
