Abstract

This article looks at how the socialist republican of the period 1840-1850 justified the advent of the Republic. He reports on the theoretical demonstration of the famous republican motto of revolutionary France proposed by these “advanced” republican, emphasising the centrality of the concept of “equality”, which alone makes freedom effective. At the intersection of socialism and republianism, these 1848 men outline a theory of the social republic and, from a programmatic point of view, propose a new institutional framework capable of achieving it. This alternative structural framework contrasts with the liberal framework of neo-smithian economists who claim realism against utopia.
