Houellebecq romancier catholique et socialiste

Australian Journal of French Studies (2019), 56, (1), 70–74.

Abstract

The hidden line of reasoning in Houellebecq’s work opposes to modern “critical” society hope or nostalgia for an “organic” society, just as the Saint-Simonians did. The logical complement to Houellebecq’s systematic anti-liberalism is nostalgia for both medieval Catholicism and nineteenth-century French and English socialism.

Le logiciel caché de Houellebecq oppose à la société critique moderne, l’espérance ou le regret d’une société organique, comme le faisaient les saint-simoniens. L’antilibéralisme systématique de Michel Houellebecq a pour complément logique une nostalgie pour le catholicisme médiéval et le socialisme français et anglais du XIX° siècle.
