Sample text

Third, idéologie was founded upon the idea that social harmony and order would ensue to the extent that enlightenment was widely dispersed, especially among ‘la classe mitoyenne’ of the population. La Décade philosophique attempted to serve a role of public education at the same time that it provided a forum for communication and for debate among idéologues. Fourth, the central goal of idéologie was to promote harmony and social order, and to that end idéologues had a political context and role.

Tracy, keen to protect these institutions, wrote a series of pamphlets deemphasising the political implications of idéologie and arguing that ideological reasoning was essential to the development of the moral sciences. Because Bonaparte saw the moral sciences as part of the problem, these writings garnered Tracy little favour. The Institut was reorganised in 1803, and the class of Moral and Political Sciences suppressed (Staum 1996:150). Although La Décade continued to advocate ideology as well as some economic policies contrary to official policy, it became increasingly docile after 1802 (Kitchin 1966).
