AUTONOMIE MORALE ET AUTORITÉ OU LA QUESTION DE LA VOLONTÉ CHEZ ROUSSEAU

Christophe Salvat ()

Cahiers d’économie politique / Papers in Political Economy, 2007, issue 53, 73-90

Abstract: In the Rousseauist tradition, the idea of sovereignty generally refers to the sovereignty of the body politic. Rousseau never yields nevertheless to the holist temptation. Individual is at the core of his system. The aim of this paper is to question the idea of moral autonomy, in particular in its relation to authority, and to emphasize the positive effects of the law on individuals' rationality.
