Alexis de Tocqueville
Memorable Quotations: Alexis de Tocqueville
(Kindle Book at Amazon)
Alexis de Tocqueville (1805–59) was a French social philosopher. Important in French politics, he was for a short time foreign minister after the revolution of 1848. His renown rests on his classic work Democracy in America (2 vol., 1835), based on observations made during a trip to the United States. A liberal, he believed that political democracy and social equality would ultimately replace Europe's aristocratic institutions.
