Tocqueville's "Sacred Ark"

Aurelian Craiutu


This article explores several key aspects of Tocqueville's "new science of
politics". By focusing on its cross-disciplinary, comparative, normative, and
political components, it highlights Tocqueville's conceptual and methodological
sophistication as illustrated by his preparatory notes for Democracy in America
and his voyage notes. The essay also defends Tocqueville against those critics
who took him to task for working with an imprecise definition of democracy or
with an ambiguous conception of equality.

Palabras clave
