    About “Emmanuel Joseph Sieyès”

    1. Emmanuel Joseph Sieyès

      Most commonly known as the Abb Siey s, was a French Roman Catholic abb , clergyman and political writer, Second Consul of France during Napoleonic era, one of the first members of what would become the Academy of Moral and Political Sciences of the Institute of France.Abb Siey s was one of the chief political theorists of the French Revolution, and also played a prominent role in the French Consulate and First French Empire His 1789 pamphlet What is the Third Estate became the manifesto of the Revolution, helping to transform the Estates General into the National Assembly in June 1789 In 1799, he was the instigator of the coup d tat of 18 Brumaire 9 November , which brought Napoleon Bonaparte to power He also coined the term sociologie in an unpublished manuscript, and made significant theoretical contributions to the nascent social sciences.Despite Siey s embrace of Enlightenment thinking, he was ordained to the priesthood in 1773 In spite of this, he was not hired immediately He spent this time researching philosophy and developing music until about a year later in October 1774 when, as the result of demands by powerful friends, he was promised a canonry in Brittany Unfortunately for Siey s, this canonry went into effect only when the preceding holder died At the end of 1775, Siey s acquired his first real position as secretary to the bishop of Tr guier where he spent two years as deputy of the diocese It is here that he sat in the Estates of Brittany and became disgusted with the immense power the privileged classes held In 1780, the bishop of Tr guier was transferred to the bishopric of Chartres He became aware of how easy it was for nobles to advance in ecclesiastical offices compared to commoners Sieyes was an ambitious man therefore, he resented the privileges granted to the nobles within the Church system and thought the patronage system was a humiliation for commoners Siey s accompanied him there as his vicar general where he eventually became a canon of the cathedral and chancellor of the diocese of Chartres.While remaining in ecclesiastical offices, Siey s maintained a religious cynicism at odds with his position By the time he took his orders to enter priesthood, Siey s had freed himself from all superstitious sentiments and ideas Even when corresponding with his deeply religious father, Siey s showed a severe lack of piety for the man in charge of the diocese of Chartres 8 It is theorised that Sieyes accepted a religious career not because he had any sort of strong religious inclination, but because he considered it the only means to advance his career as a political writer.

Document original sur Gallica :gallicaf/ark:/12148/bpt6Ce petit texte, écrit par l'abbé Joseph Sieyès, est un document capital de la révolution française: écrit en janvier 1789, il annonce de manière nette et précise la couleur et le programme de la révolution à venir: principe de souveraineté basé sur la nation, création de l'Assemblée Nationale, abolition des privilèges, réforme de la justice et des impôts. Ce Tiers-Etat, il cherche à le faire peser dans la balance politique [...]


    2. Entre el final del siglo dieciocho y el comienzo del diecinueve, finalmente emergió acabadamente el concepto de soberanía nacional en el pensamiento europeo. En la base de esta figura definitiva del concepto había un trauma –la Revolución Francesa– y la resolución de ese trauma –la celebración y apropiación reaccionaria del concepto de nación. Los elementos fundamentales de esta reconfiguración desplazada del concepto de nación que lo transformaron en una verdadera arma política [...]


    3. 시대상황이 강하게 반영되어 있어 지금 현실에서는 약간 과하게 느껴지는 부분이 있고 수사학적인 부분에서 정돈되지 못하고 불필요한 사족이 있다. 하지만 철학의 역할을 이야기하는 부분은 흥미롭고, 지침으로서의 민주주의의 원칙을 이야기하는 부분은 현대 복잡다기화된 민주주의에서 한번쯤 돌이켜볼만한 내용이라고 생각한다.
