Apart from those I already know here, I was wishing to know if anybody else would be interested into discussing political philosophy and theory? Because I'm very much into that (maybe even too much
), and it would be fun if there was someone to discuss with, maybe to help sorting out the chaos. I'm quite a beginner, of course, having read very little through Montesquieu and Rousseau.
Just so I specify: I'm working on the political thoughts (but also socio-economical) of Robespierre, Saint-Just and the Jacobins. Trying to understand through historians I can read on the website www.revolution-francaise.net. Of course, it's in French... But some links, in case anybody around can read them: Guilhaumou's "The Hatred of the French Revolution: a Form of Hatred of Democracy"
, Wannich's "The French Revolution in the Country of Ghost Trains"
and Gross's theories on "Terror and Equalitarian Liberalism"
. I also recommend reading this
, also by Gross.( A few thoughts on 'Lire Saint-Just' by Miguel Abensour. )
Btw, anybody speaks French here? Or is from France? Anybody knows French forums -- which are active
? (I'm from Québec -- so I speak French. That's why I'm asking.) Because I can hardly believe this LJ community could be the only one in the world? Or is it? -_-;
