Henri Saint-Simon and non-violent activism
The symposium will analyze the works of Henri Saint-Simon (1760-1825) and his followers and their action will be compared with the doctrine of Mahatma Gandhi and the actions he inspired.
Although Mahātma Gandhi is often considered the founding father of modern nonviolent actions, the Western world also had a number of thinkers and activists propagating nonviolent forms of advocacy. A major forgotten hero of nonviolent activism was Henri Saint-Simon.
Symposium held in French.
