La vie privée des convictions

La vie privée des convictions

Politique, affectivité, intimité
The Private Lives of our Beliefs
Politics, Emotions, and Intimacy

It is necessary to share someone's ideas in order to love or appreciate them? What role do political choices and beliefs play in a couple, a family, a friend group, or more broadly, in all the relationships that we maintain?

This book illustrates the constant interweaving of our private lives with our political beliefs. It seeks to go beyond political science’straditional reluctance toincorporate the role of individual affect in its analyses. As individuals have become freer from belief systems and ideologies than ever before, they have in turn been forced to make choices based on criteria ofidentification and closeness, thus making the private sphere a new realm of the democratic process.

Investigating intimacy as a site for political experience and involvement, this work deciphers the permanent negotiations that play out in family discussions or between partners with different opinions. It tells the story of an exceptional couple, the Thorez's, who lived as one entity in terms of emotions and politics and it dissects the different manners in which friends can part ways due to political beliefs.

The author invites us to see politics through the prism of our private lives, thus allowing us to explore other ways to interpret and understand the politicisation of individuals.

Croire et faire croire
Usages politiques de la croyance
Believe and mahe believe
Political usages of belief
Anne Muxel
Ideologies are still active but they are divided, compartmentalised, through a mosaic of references, standards and objectives. The multidisciplinary perspective of this volume. Drawing on philosophy, history, art history, political science, sociology, the authors question the political usages of individual and collective belief.

La politique au fil de l'âge
Politics and age
Anne Muxel
Revolutionary at 20, conservative at 60: is there truth in this old adage? Do our political attitudes change as we age? This work gives light to the ties between age, generation, life cycle and our political lives.

Le Vote disruptif
Les élections présidentielle et législatives de 2017
The disruptive vote
The presidential and legislative elections of 2017
Pascal Perrineau
A process of creative destruction of a rare intensity swept through the French political system during the 2017 elections, comparable to a devastated battleground. After the storm, now comes the time for analysis and the first research results.



La démocratie de l'entre-soi
Pascal Perrineau, Luc Rouban
In this book, a team of researchers from CEVIPOF suggests that what is "common" is no longer based on what is public, but on what is private. That politics is now evolving in communitarian spaces of all kinds, family, religious denominations, political parties, oligarchies...
