La tradition française de l’égalité: histoire, tensions, renouvellements

Abstract : The concept of equality is absolutely relevant for the French political culture. It finds a first culminant moment during the French Revolution (1789-1799), through a hard controversy: the equality defining the rights of man and of citizen vs a concrete equality, which is said “more real”. Today, the equality can be considered as a differential one, such as the social diversity could be represented in itself, including the fact that this meaning of equality takes roots mostly in the society itself, not in the making of state laws. Considering the French political thought, this process of regulation out of the state interference, which is nevertheless a judicial fact, is indeed a new moment, that of persons which are “equal and different”.
