Believe and mahe believe
Political usages of belief

Belief has not disappeared from our democratic societies, subject as they are to the relativity of individual opinions, the spread of a model of critical citizenship and the logics of scientific knowledge. Through its imaginative and symbolic power, it remains a decisive cog in the wheel of the social order, and therefore of the political order.

Ideologies are still active, for example, but they are divided, compartmentalised, through a mosaic of references, standards and objectives.

This is the advantage of the multidisciplinary perspective of this volume. Drawing on philosophy, history, art history, political science, sociology, image analysis, the authors question the political usages of individual and collective belief.

Exploring fields such as science, prayer, human rights, populism, jihadism, Republican values, political communication, filiation, memory, repression, the repertoires of young people's involvement and so forth, they shed light on the norms and values that allow us to believe and make others believe in the contemporary world.

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.
