The left and the challenges associated with a society of individuals
In the face of the triumph of individualism, what makes a modern society today? How can we avoid "the social-individualism impasse"? Marcel Gauchet dusts down the relationship between socialism and individualism – far from being opposing sides, as one might think they are - from birth to the present day. This brings to light the dilemmas which the left face and highlights the issues upon which the left should provide clarity.
