Bibliography By this author Topics of the article 1It is a commonplace to assert that before the Revolution French thought had developed no republican theory or ideology: France was entirely monarchical, advocates of absolutism as well as those who hoped for reforms.
In the 18th century, all intended to establish or re-establish a regime in the framework of the monarchical system and only a few, under the Regency and the reign of Louis XVI, dared dream of a change in dynasty. There are several arguments to support this point of view.
Next, unlike the England of the Hanoverian kings, monarchical France had no republican past, the English Revolution having not, moreover, left many admirers there.
Finally, for most of the French, the modern republics — the United Provinces, Venice or even Geneva — were not only strange, even ridiculous, but also often odious because they were enemies of the king of France. Thus, no republicanism in French thought. The political dream of the Classical period was not republican Jean Marie Goulemot, In Enlightenment France, a republican was someone who opposed the present regime, rarely one who proposed the establishment of a republic.
It also signifies one who loves the republican government […]. Quentin glorieux thesis, more than a model to imitate or pick up on, these ancient republics served essentially as a cultural reference, inevitable since Aristotle, but without practical value for reforming one of the oldest European monarchies.
Sometimes it corresponds to an authentic political regime — in many respects a counter-example of despotism — which is the dominant meaning in his writings. The republic is a regime in which power rests on a legal footing.
And the principles differ according to the governments: This does not prevent comparisons from being made in the process from one government to the next.
Regroupings are thus performed between the republic of aristocratic type and monarchy. Conversely, in order to correct itself, democracy must borrow institutions of aristocratic type. But the ancient republics of which he speaks with nostalgic admiration nevertheless present, as models and references, many flaws.
First, they cannot be envisaged except in narrow territorial frameworks. In a large republic, there are great fortunes, and consequently little moderation in the minds: In a large republic, the common good is sacrificed to a thousand considerations; it is subordinated to exceptions; it depends on accidents.
In a small one, the public good is better felt, better known, closer to each citizen; abuses are less extensive and consequently better protected. They have made of Montesquieu a modern thinker who definitively consummates the break with the classics.
This tradition, qualified by its principal current interpreters, John Greville A.
The ancient ideals of active life — the vivere civile — and political freedom were exalted there by a whole series of Florentine and Venetian writers, of whom the best known are Machiavelli and Guicciardini.
They pleaded for the centrality of the common good, for the general interest as the end of political action, for equal participation of citizens and for the economic independence of the citizen.
He passionately read Plato and Aristotle. In he drafted his Dissertation sur la politique des Romains dans la religion basing himself on Machiavelli and his thesis of the social utility of religion elaborated in the Discourses on the first book of Livy.
Furthermore, the French parlementary crisis of also familiarized him with the radical republicanism of certain arguments of the Jansenist lawyers and magistrates.
As shown by the work of Catherine Maire and David A. Bell, these were indeed invading the parlementary literature, notably after the publication of the royal edict of imposing the Constitution Unigenitus as law of the realm.
