  1. Samuel Moyn (2005). Savage and Modern Liberty Marcel Gauchet and the Origins of New French Thought. European Journal of Political Theory 4 (2):164-187.
    This article is a study of the trajectory of the contemporary French liberal philosopher Marcel Gauchet from his early, ‘anarchist’ commitments through the 1970s to his discovery and defense of liberalism, notably as expressed in his 1980 revival and interpretation of his 19th-century countryman Benjamin Constant’s post-revolutionary liberalism. Discussed in the article are Gauchet’s devotion to and revision of the portrait of primitive society he inherited from the French anthropologist Pierre Clastres, how his early political and theoretical concerns are transmuted (...)

    Samuel Moyn (2007). From Experience to Law: Leo Strauss and the Weimar Crisis of the Philosophy of Religion. History of European Ideas 33 (2):174-194.
    This paper is a study of the origins of Leo Strauss's thought, arguing that its early development must be understood in the context of the philosophy of religion of late Wilhelmine and Weimar Germany. More specifically, it shows that Strauss's early works were written against the background of Kantian philosophy and post-Kantian accounts of religious experience, and that his turn towards medieval law as a topic and ideal was precipitated by the critique of those accounts by radical Protestant theologians writing (...)

    Samuel Moyn (2004). Of Savagery and Civil Society: Pierre Clastres and the Transformation of French Political Thought. Modern Intellectual History 1 (1):55-80.
    This essay examines the thought of the French anthropologist Pierre Clastres . It situates his once-famous depiction of savage politics as a premonitory rejection of the state at the crossroads of several traditions, long- and short-term. First, Clastres's thought resonates with the primitivistic appeal by French “moralists” since the early modern period to the lifestyle of prehistoric societies; second, it casts light on the history of French anthropology in the crisis years of structuralism; and third, it reflects the revival of (...)

    Samuel Moyn (2009). The Assumption by Man of His Original Fracturing: Marcel Gauchet, Gladys Swain, and the History of the Self. Modern Intellectual History 6 (2):315-341.
    This essay reconstructs conceptually and situates historically contemporary French philosopher Marcel Gauchet's theory of the origins and development of modern selfhood. It argues that his history of the self as the interiorization of constitutive alienation, and of the history of self-consciousness as the progressive recognition of this alienation, originated out of a unique combination of historical factors—the radical politics of May 1968, the rise of the antipsychiatry movement, and (perhaps most surprisingly) the new psychoanalysis of Jacques Lacan. The essay considers (...)
