Liberty and Order. The Liberal Conservatism of François Guizot

Sergey Matveev
2019
In Russian
Number of pages: 232
ISBN: 978-5-7598-1911-0

This monograph presents the first attempt of recreating the political theory of French liberal conservatism using the works of François Guizot. It tries to reconstruct  the  intellectual  landscape of the Second Restoration and the July Monarchy. Guizot’s political theory is ascertained as the philosophical foundation of liberal conservatism. The founding components of the doctrine of liberal conservatism, which was an important part of political dispute and public life in XIX-century France, are clarified. By studying  this movement,  it is possible to uncover conflicting trends in the establishment  of civil society and the rule of law in France. The works of François Guizot (1787–1874) have become the theoretical foundation of this process. Philosophical grounds of the liberal conservatism are derived from analyzing the key concepts of his studies, such as liberty and equality, sovereign authority, teleology and history of philosophy.
The book is designed to historians, philosophers, experts in political thought and historians of ideas, as well as teachers and students of humanities.
