Preview

Concludes with an examination of the political thought of Jules Barni, one of the leading republican philosophers of his generation. Barni was the French translator of the works of Kant, and during the 1850s and 1860s his republicanism was deeply influenced by Kantian principles (notably in his commitment to international peace and anti‐militarism). In the 1870s Barni's writings played an important role in the emergence of the doctrine of ‘republican municipalism’, which underpinned the new political order in France.
