The Authority of Tradition as True Universalism: Lord Acton’s Political Philosophy

Risultato della ricerca: Contributo in libroChapter

Abstract

The article is focused on Lord Acton's critique on the national and the liberal modern state, where the plurality of associations and corps which animates the social life is obscured and sometimes even persecuted in order to etasblish a centralized, bureaucratic order which - instead of recognizing the primacy of the moral values and the tradition as the basis of social and political life - tends to identify the state with the nation, intended as etno-geographic unity.
