Democracy in America

Democracy in America

Author: Alexis De Tocqueville Narrator: Peter Wickham Release Date: 01/04/2020

Sent by the French government to examine the American prison system, Alexis de Tocqueville spent nine months touring the United States between 1831 and 1832. However, fascinated by the success of America's democratic system, de Tocqueville took advantage of his stay to examine the country's foundations and glean ideas that might rescue his homeland from the manacles of social inequality. He leaves no stone unturned, exploring each branch of government, the constitution, economics, religion, race, the judiciary, laws, principles, education, culture, and views on wealth and poverty. Many of his observations have been praised for their prescience and foresight, and many are still relevant, offering fresh and piercing insights into American life today.

Democracy in America Vol 1

Democracy in America Vol 1

In 1831 French aristocrat Alexis de Tocqueville came to the United States to investigate its prison system. America was then a nation of 13 million people populating 24 states, with a largely unsettled territorial claim stretching westward to the Pacific. Seriously distracted from his original mission, the 25-year-old Tocqueville ended up writing about America's people, culture, history, geography, politics, legal system, and economy in ways so insightful and prophetic that today historians, professors, and politicians still consider his work Democracy in America a classic.

Author: Alexis De Tocqueville Narrator: Fábio Godinho Release Date: 01/01/2020

Alexis de Tocqueville é um filósofo político e político francês. Nascido numa antiga e nobre família da Normandia, estudou direito e tornou-se magistrado em 1827. Em 1830, obteve uma missão do Ministério para estudar o sistema prisional americano, que era o seu passaporte para descobrir os Estados Unidos e compreender o que ele considerava ser o melhor exemplo de democracia disponível. Desta estadia de quase um ano, extraiu da Democracia na América, uma análise do sistema democrático em geral (as suas virtudes, riscos e dinâmica) e da sua ilustração americana em particular, que foi um enorme sucesso quando foi publicada em 1835 e 1840. Isto levou à sua eleição para a Academia de Ciências Morais e Políticas com apenas trinta e três anos de idade, e depois para a Academia Francesa aos trinta e seis anos de idade. Estas 100 citações visam dar acesso à sua obra monumental através de uma selecção dos seus pensamentos mais marcantes, num formato acessível a todos. Uma citação é mais do que um excerto de um discurso, pode ser um traço da mente, um resumo de um pensamento complexo, uma máxima, uma abertura para uma reflexão mais profunda.

Alexis de Tocqueville est un philosophe politique et homme politique français. Né dans une vieille famille de la noblesse de Normandie, il suit des études de droit et devient magistrat en 1827. En 1830, il obtient une mission du ministère pour aller étudier le système pénitentiaire américain, ce qui constitue son passeport pour aller découvrir les États-Unis et comprendre ce qu'il tient pour le meilleur exemple disponible de démocratie. De ce séjour de près d'un an, il tire De la démocratie en Amérique, une analyse du système démocratique en général (de ses vertus, de ses risques et de sa dynamique) et de son illustration particulière américaine, qui connaît un immense succès à sa publication en 1835 et 1840. Cela lui vaut d'être élu à l'Académie des sciences morales et politiques à seulement trente-trois ans, puis à l'Académie française à trente-six. Ces 100 citations visent à donner accès à son œuvre monumentale par une sélection de ses pensées les plus marquantes, dans un format accessible à tous. Une citation est plus qu'un extrait d'un propos, ce peut être un trait d'esprit, un résumé d'une pensée complexe, une maxime, une ouverture sur une réflexion plus profonde.

Tocqueville, éthique et politique

Tocqueville, éthique et politique

Author: Alexis De Tocqueville Narrator: Rémi Pous Release Date: 01/12/2012

Alexis de Tocqueville est célèbre pour ses analyses de la Révolution française, de la démocratie américaine et de l'évolution des démocraties occidentales en général. Il défend la liberté individuelle et l'égalité politique. Exprimant parfois des réserves sur l'évolution possible de la démocratie vers une dictature de la majorité au nom de l'égalité, et rejetant à ce titre nettement toute orientation socialiste, il est l'une des plus grandes références de la philosophie politique libérale. Théoricien du colonialisme, légitimant l'expansion française en Afrique du Nord (1841-1846), il fustige néanmoins la barbarie des armées françaises en Afrique, s'oppose à l'application du régime militaire en Algérie, et défend parmi les premiers l'abolition de l'esclavage dans les colonies. Parallèlement, Tocqueville refuse les considérations de la thèse de son ami Joseph Arthur de Gobineau (Essai sur l'inégalité des races humaines). Retrouvez dans ce livre audio 6 grands textes emblématiques et fondateurs de la pensée politique de Tocqueville. Sélection de textes : Lecture de Machiavel ; Une certaine conception du politique : le primat de la liberté, lettres à Marie et à Edouard ; Contre le coup d'Etat et la tyrannie ; Les valeurs universelles, humanisme, droits de l'homme ; Contre l'esclavage ; Contre le génocide des Indiens d'Amérique.

Democracy in America

Author: Alexis De Tocqueville Narrator: John Pruden Release Date: 01/09/2010

Democracy in America has had the singular honor of being even to this day the work that political commentators of every stripe refer to when they seek to draw large conclusions about the society of the USA. Alexis de Tocqueville, a young French aristocrat, came to the young nation to investigate the functioning of American democracy & the social, political & economic life of its citizens, publishing his observations in 1835 & 1840. Brilliantly written, vividly illustrated with vignettes & portraits, Democracy in America is far more than a trenchant analysis of one society at a particular point in time. What will most intrigue modern readers is how many of the observations still hold true: on the mixed advantages of a free press, the strained relations among the races & the threats posed to democracies by consumerism & corruption. So uncanny is Tocqueville’s insight & so accurate are his predictions, that it seems as tho he were not merely describing the American identity but actually helping to create it.

Democracy in America

Author: Alexis De Tocqueville Narrator: Frederick Davidson Release Date: 01/08/2010

In 1831, a young French aristocrat named Alexis de Tocqueville came to the United States officially to appraise the country’s penal system—but with a higher personal goal in mind. Looking to America’s unique democratic system as a possible model for post-revolutionary France, Tocqueville set about to study the culture, character, and institutions of the evolving nation. "I confess that in America I saw more than America,” he said; “I sought the image of democracy itself, with its inclinations, its character, its prejudices, and its passions, in order to learn what we have to fear or hope from its progress." His resulting work, the classic Democracy in America, proved so insightful and prophetic that it continues to command the attention of historians, scholars, and politicians today. “No better study of a nation’s institutions and culture than Tocqueville’s Democracy in America has ever been written by a foreign observer—none perhaps as good.”--New York Times
