Selected Studies on Alexis De Tocqueville and America
MetadataShow full item record
Alexis De Tocqueville is the protagonist and muse of this work. He wrote in a time when the lines between disciplines of sociology, political science, and philosophy were not as clearly drawn as today. But in this total view of man, society, and history, one can see what should be called the true "dualism" of de Tocqueville - the distinction between his analysis and hopes, his expectations and his ideals. He was a searcher of values and researcher of times. And when he said he was writing under a kind of dread, we can begin to understand the struggle the two sides held for him. His method, if nothing else, was the attempt to join these two sides, and he called this approach "a new political science" to face the future. It was a call for prophesy and plans to change the propheses.If you are not a current K College student, faculty, or staff member, email email@example.com to request access to this SIP.
