Abstract

This paper criticizes the so-called "libertarian" theses of American origin which promote maximalist liberal ideas. If we analyze the libertarian project seriously, we can conclude that its lure is minimal, even, and above all, from the perspective of the values of freedom which found it.Cet article est un commentaire critique des thèses libertariennes, du nom du courant, né aux Etats-Unis, qui défend des thèses libérales maximalistes. Si lon accepte de prendre le projet libertarien au sérieux, lon saperçoit que son pouvoir de séduction est minime, même, et surtout, du point de vue des valeurs de liberté qui le fondent.
