Las metamorfosis de la soberanía según Tocqueville

Abstract : Sovereignty changed its place with Tocqueville. Through the articulation between the “social state” and the “political state”, sovereignty experiences a new wrinkle far from those traditional forms it used to have in political theory: it becomes democratic opinion, the new “social authority” (in the sense given by Lamennais). It happened in the United States in the framework of local life, a form of sociability and power where the interaction of public and private takes place. Thereafter, future modern and democratic authority will not be the property and the privilege of the State anymore, as it used to be in the absolute monarchies of European societies.
