L'invention du vote secret en Angleterre. Idéologie, intérêt et circulation des arguments

Mostly, they reflected the reluctance front notables towards any restriction of their influence but also the specificity of the utilitarian ideology, on which the radical school of thought (the main agency of the democratisation process) was based : one of the corner stones of Bentham's philosophy being the principale of publicity, on one hand it hampered for some time the demand, by the radicals, of the ballot wich the middle class, their constituency, wanted strongly and on the other hand it provided the opponents to the ballot, conservative whigs as well as tories, with new arguments.
