New! PALESTRA ANUAL ALEXIS DE TOCQUEVILLE 1998-2018 | Alexis de Tocqueville Annual Lecture 1998-2018

Coord. Ana V. Martins | Preface: João Carlos Espada edited by Universidade Católica Editora

(In portuguese) - Price: 29.90€

"Essentially, the book brings together the Alexis de Tocqueville Annual Lectures, which began in 1998. These are formal ceremonies to award diplomas which are preceded by a lecture by a distinguished guest speaker and followed by a formal dinner.
The name Alexis de Tocqueville may not be widely known, but it was -and continues to be- a name that expresses with particular elegance and distinction the project dreamt by IEP-UCP: a project of university autonomy, of orderly and quiet defense of freedom, of refusal of what Tocqueville called a "sterile conflict between Old Regime and Revolution" or "perpetual oscillation between serfdom and abuse". 
(João Carlos Espada)
