A Third Way Avant la Lettre

La Vie des idées has a very interesting review-essay by Nicolas Delalande of Serge Audier's book on Léon Bourgeois, the founder of the social-liberal reformist movement known as Solidarism. His credo was, "The isolated individual does not exist." Bourgeois held several ministerial portfolios in the Third Republic and was the first president of the League of Nations. Audier's book is one of a number of recent works by French scholars exploring a reformist tradition in French politics that had previously been neglected. There are links to on-line versions of Bourgeois's works.
