Pierre Leroux et la religion de l’humanité : une conception post-séculière au XIXe siècle ?
PIERRE LEROUX AND THE RELIGION OF HUMANITY: A POST-SECULAR CONCEPT IN THE 19th CENTURY?
Languages of publication
The aim of the article is to show, using the example of Pierre Leroux, that the extension of the post-secular perspective to Romanticism is not only possible, but even desirable. Leroux’s work contains in this context two fundamental aspects: first, a philosophical reflection on humanity, its true tradition and eternal life; secondly, a socio-political reflection on the necessity of establishing a civil religion. Some threads that are present in Leroux’s thought, referring to Joachimism, seem to make him closer to the views of contemporary post-secular and post-modern authors.
