Coals to Newcastle? On the Anglo-American Reception of Pierre Rosanvallon

Samuel Moyn

Abstract


Abstract

This essay assesses the reasons for the so far minimal reception of Pierre Rosanvallon’s writings in the English-speaking world. Some of the factors suggested include his resistance to a liberal triumphalism that framed the Anglo-American presentation of the larger body of thought to which he contributed and his focus on hexagonal French history, especially in the nineteenth century. The essay closes with a comparison of the reception of his approach with that of Thomas Piketty’s recent bestseller on a similar topic.

Keywords: Pierre Rosanvallon, Claude Lefort, Mark Lilla, liberalism, democracy
