What is democracy? by Alain Touraine ( Book )
17 editions published between 1994 and 2000 in English and held by 403 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In this sequel to A Critique of Modernity, Alain Touraine questions the social and cultural content of democracy today. At a time when state power is being increasingly eroded by the economic might of transnational capital, what possible value can we ascribe to a democratic idea that is defined merely as a set of guarantees against the totalitarian state? If democracy is to survive in the post-communist world, Touraine argues, it must accomplish two urgent goals: It must somehow protect the power of the nation-state at the same time as it limits that power (for only the state has sufficient means to counterbalance the global corporate wielders of money and information); and it must reconcile social diversity with social unity and individual liberty with integration

Critique de la modernité by Alain Touraine ( Book )
35 editions published between 1992 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 361 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Une critique de la modernité qui cherche à en sauver (reformuler)) l'idée puisque "le sujet ne peut pas se dissoudre dans la post-modernité". L'auteur rappelle d'abord le triomphe des conceptions rationalistes de la modernité. Puis il suit la destruction de cette idée de la modernité, dans la pensée et les pratiques sociales. Dans une troisième partie, qui peut se lire en premier, l'auteur présente ses idées sur la modernité comme relation tendue entre la Raison et le Sujet, la rationalisation et la subjectivation, entre l'esprit de la Renaissance et celui de la Réforme, la science et la liberté (cf. la présentation très claire et accessible, p. 11-17)
