    Peter Augustine Lawler, The Restless Mind: Alexis de Tocqueville on the Origin and Perpetuation of Human Liberty

    "Tocqueville was not a socialist or an apolitical liberal, ancient or modern. He dit not understand the human good to be freedom from the pretensions of political life. The perpetuation of all forms of human liberty, including intellectual liberty, dépends upon the perception that political liberty is good for its own sake. [...]

    Tocqueville's project might be understood to be more Aristotelician than Pascalian, because he understands the human being as necessarily a political one
