About this item

This edited collection brings to light the rare virtues and uncommon merits of Raymond Aron, the main figure of French twentieth-century liberalism. The Companion to Raymond Aron is an essential supplement to Aron's main works, exploring the substance of his political, sociological, and philosophical thought. Raymond Aron was a theoretical man who took the realm of action very seriously. He consistently questioned the limits of historical knowledge, the relationship between economics and politics, or the possibility of a science of international relations. The cynosure of his deepest ambition was the producing of what he called 'praxeology,' or a theory of action. His multifaceted oeuvre embodies one of the most successful efforts in twentieth century to conceive of political philosophy as a practical philosophy.
