The "Republican tradition" in France

As resplendent as it is vague, the Republican tradition is inseparable from the legacy of Waldeck-Rousseau’s « Republican defence » ministry which put an end to the political crisis brought about by the Dreyfus Affair. This moral and political context explains the subsequent veneration of the nineteenth-century Republican party, which had come into being to conquer and defend those freedoms judged to be indissociable from majority rule.

The Republican tradition was thoroughly discredited by the abuses of the interwar years and the collapse of 1940. Recently, however, it has regained respectability as the decline of ideologies has made way for a reevaluation of historical modes of thought.
