Lo stato sociale nel pensiero politico contemporaneo. Il Novecento

Parte prima: Da inizio secolo alla seconda guerra mondiale
  • Claudio De Boni,

The idea of the welfare state, that is of a state tangibly committed to the economic welfare of the citizens, became progressively established in western thought in the twentieth century. Running counter to the tradition of thought in which politics and economics were two separate and independent spheres, various political cultures pressed for an acknowledgement of social rights and the duty of the state to intervene to protect the weaker brackets of the population. The first of these was social democracy, followed by a liberalism which became increasingly "social" in line with Christian thought, through to the phenomenon of the "totalitarian welfare state", when even absolutist states elaborated policies designed to incorporate the proletariat in the national order.
This book is part of a larger work intended to address the issue of the welfare state in contemporary political thought. Following the volume dedicated to the nineteenth century (FUP 2007), this book deals with the period from the turn of the century up to the formulation of one of the most consummate and organic projects of welfare state ever conceived: that elaborated by Beveridge in England during the Second World War.

Claudio De Boni teaches history of political doctrine and history of political thought in the "Cesare Alfieri" Faculty of Political Science in Florence. His research activities are centred primarily on the history of utopian thought, the elaboration of political concepts within positivism, in particular that of France, and on the birth and development of the idea of the welfare state. On this latter subject, in addition to the present book, he has also published, inter alia, Alla ricerca dello stato sociale. Politica ed economia nel pensiero francese della prima metà dell'Ottocento (1999).
