Example text

Justice, for Proudhon, is a principle of balance fundamental to the idea of the contract, for contracts must be kept if they are to be effective; that is, the parties to the contract must do what they have agreed to do to maintain the balance or justice of the agreement.  This passage makes the point that the kind of anarchism Proudhon had in mind has much in common with socialism, albeit a socialism without the kind of top­down state apparatus advocated by Marx.  Later, we shall have to consider the impact of such collectivism on culture.

The novels of Zola and other naturalists offer a Darwinian image of society where human beings are subject to deterministic "laws" of Page 32 heredity and environment that are inexorable in their workings, whereas Kropotkin's causality is quite flexible, governed only by the "independent" nature of individual phenomena.  Kropotkin, however, is no avatar of Rousseau: his faith in technology to provide a modernist utopia is completely within an Enlightenment tradition that cannot include Rousseau.

This passage makes the point that the kind of anarchism Proudhon had in mind has much in common with socialism, albeit a socialism without the kind of top­down state apparatus advocated by Marx.  Later, we shall have to consider the impact of such collectivism on culture.  Sonn's point that anarchism "fused elements of a remembered past with a vision of utopian future" seems especially relevant to Proudhon. " 28 Anarchism, then, does not reject origins so much as it seeks to reconstruct them, provided the crucial point is upheld that the archon is everyman.
