<p>Toutes les soci茅t茅s humaines ont besoin de justifier leurs in茅galit茅s : il faut leur trouver des raisons, faute de quoi c'est l'ensemble de l'茅difice politique et social qui menace de s'effondrer. Les id茅ologies du pass茅, si on les 茅tudie de pr貓s, ne sont 脿 cet 茅gard pas toujours plus folles que celles du pr茅sent. C'est en montrant la multiplicit茅 des trajectoires et des bifurcations possibles que l'on peut interroger les fondements de nos propres institutions et envisager les conditions de leur transformation.<br /> 脌 partir de donn茅es comparatives d'une ampleur et d'une profondeur in茅dites, ce livre retrace dans une perspective tout 脿 la fois 茅conomique, sociale, intellectuelle et politique l'histoire et le devenir des r茅gimes in茅galitaires, depuis les soci茅t茅s trifonctionnelles et esclavagistes anciennes jusqu'aux soci茅t茅s postcoloniales et hypercapitalistes modernes, en passant par les soci茅t茅s propri茅taristes, coloniales, communistes et sociales-d茅mocrates. 脌 l'encontre du r茅cit hyperin茅galitaire qui s'est impos茅 depuis les ann茅es 1980-1990, il montre que c'est le combat pour l'茅galit茅 et l'茅ducation, et non pas la sacralisation de la propri茅t茅, qui a permis le d茅veloppement 茅conomique et le progr貓s humain.<br /> En s'appuyant sur les le莽ons de l'histoire globale, il est possible de rompre avec le fatalisme qui nourrit les d茅rives identitaires actuelles et d'imaginer un socialisme participatif pour le XXIe si貓cle : un nouvel horizon 茅galitaire 脿 vis茅e universelle, une nouvelle id茅ologie de l'茅galit茅, de la propri茅t茅 sociale, de l'茅ducation et du partage des savoirs et des pouvoirs.<br /> <br /> Directeur d'茅tudes 脿 l'脡cole des hautes 茅tudes en sciences sociales et professeur 脿 l'脡cole d'茅conomie de Paris, <b>Thomas Piketty</b> est l'auteur du <i>Capital au</i> <i>XXIe si貓cle</i> (2013), traduit en 40 langues et vendu 脿 plus de 2,5 millions d'exemplaires, dont le pr茅sent livre est le prolongement.<br /><br /></p>

L鈥櫭塼ranger est un roman d鈥橝lbert Camus, paru en 1942. Le r茅cit se d茅roule en Alg茅rie fran莽aise. Meursault (le narrateur) apprend par un t茅l茅gramme le d茅c貓s de sa m貓re et d茅cide de se rendre 脿 son enterrement. Il n鈥檈xprime ni tristesse ni 茅motion. Il refuse de voir le corps, mais veille le cercueil comme c鈥檈st la tradition, en fumant et buvant du caf茅. Aux fun茅railles, il ne montre aucun chagrin, ne pleure pas, et se contente d鈥檕bserver les gens qui l鈥檈ntourent. Le lendemain, il rencontre Marie, une de ses anciennes coll貓gues. Le soir, ils se rendent au cin茅ma puis reviennent 脿 l'appartement de Meursault et couchent ensemble. Une relation se d茅veloppe entre eux, au cours de laquelle il ne montre pas plus de sentiment ou d'affection envers Marie qu鈥櫭?l'enterrement de sa m貓re. Plus tard, Raymond, un voisin du narrateur, lui confie vouloir se venger de son ex-femme 脿 cause de son infid茅lit茅. Quelques jours plus tard, sur une plage, Meursault et Raymond rencontrent le fr貓re de cette femme. Meursault le tue.<br />Entre temps, Marie demanda Meursault en mariage. Ce dernier r茅pondit avec indiff茅rence.<br />Dans la seconde partie de l'oeuvre, Meursault est arr錨t茅 pour son meurtre. N茅anmoins, lors de son proc貓s, c'est son insensibilit茅 au d茅c貓s de sa m貓re qui est mis en 茅vidence. Finalement, Meursault est condamn茅 脿 mort, plus pour son indiff茅rence aux normes de la soci茅t茅 que pour son crime.
