Durant ces trente dernières années, les sociétés occidentales se sont profondément libéralisées. Cette libéralisation a rendu possible de réels progrès sociaux, mais elle s'est également accompagnée d'une perte de confiance dans l'Etat, d'une instabilité financière et d'une dilution du lien social, ainsi que d'un affaiblissement de la solidarité interpersonnelle et d'un sentiment de perte de sens. Cette face sombre de la libéralisation nourrit aujourd'hui l'émergence de phénomènes réactionnaires dont témoigne la recrudescence du nationalisme, de l'intégrisme et du populisme. Vouloir poursuivre le mouvement de progrès social nécessite par conséquent de repenser le sens que doit avoir aujourd'hui le politique. La philosophie politique dominante dans les principaux partis de gauche comme de droite, le libéralisme politique, doit être dépassée au profit d'une conception différente du politique : l'humanisme démocratique. Si le libéralisme valorise la poursuite du bonheur individuel, l'humanisme démocratique incite à retrouver, tant individuellement que collectivement, ce qui constitue le sens du politique : la recherche de l'intérêt général.

Future Politics confronts one of the most important questions of our time: how will digital technology transform politics and society? The great political debate of the last century was about how much of our collective life should be determined by the state and what should be left to the market and civil society. In the future, the question will be how far our lives should be directed and controlled by powerful digital systems - and on what terms? Jamie Susskind argues that rapid and relentless innovation in a range of technologies - from artificial intelligence to virtual reality - will transform the way we live together. Calling for a fundamental change in the way we think about politics, he describes a world in which certain technologies and platforms, and those who control them, come to hold great power over us. Some will gather data about our lives, causing us to avoid conduct perceived as shameful, sinful, or wrong. Others will filter our perception of the world, choosing what we know, shaping what we think, affecting how we feel, and guiding how we act. Still others will force us to behave certain ways, like self-driving cars that refuse to drive over the speed limit. Those who control these technologies - usually big tech firms and the state - will increasingly control us. They will set the limits of our liberty, decreeing what we may do and what is forbidden. Their algorithms will resolve vital questions of social justice, allocating social goods and sorting us into hierarchies of status and esteem. They will decide the future of democracy, causing it to flourish or decay. A groundbreaking work of political analysis, Future Politics challenges readers to rethink what it means to be free or equal, what it means to have power or property, what it means for a political system to be just or democratic, and proposes ways in which we can - and must - regain control.

Le républicanisme est une théorie politique dont l'histoire a été mise en lumière depuis les années 1970, grâce aux travaux d'historiens comme J. Pocock ou Q. Skinner. Philip Pettit, philosophe irlandais qui enseigne aujourd'hui à Princeton, a proposé une version contemporaine de cette théorie en 1997 dans Républicanisme. Une Théorie de la liberté et du gouvernement (trad. 2004). Le cœur du républicanisme, nous dit-il, est l'idéal de liberté comme non-domination. Selon cet idéal, la liberté n'est pas principalement définie par une absence d'obstacles ou d'interférences (à la manière de la liberté libérale), mais par une absence de domination : cette liberté renvoie non pas d'abord à ce qu'un individu peut faire de lui-même et de ses biens, mais plutôt à la qualité des relations qu'il peut nouer avec d'autres individus. La République et ses démons est une tentative d'appliquer ce cadre théorique à quelques débats récents qui ont réveillé un républicanisme français dont les élans universalistes paraissent parfois très provinciaux.
