De la défiance à l’éloge des coopératives par J. S. Mill : retour sur la constitution d’une pensée libérale dans la première moitié du XIXe siècle

Abstract : This article examines the shift in John Stuart Mill’s liberalism through the analysis of his viewpoint on cooperatives. Comparing the criticism he addressed in 1825 to the Owenite co-operatives, on the one hand, to the apology of cooperatives later on in the Principles, on the other, we show that he will gradually operate a form of synthesis between liberalism and socialism, both seen as bearing a democratic ideal. This also comes from the fact that Mill perceives cooperatives as the source of a moral revolution. In addition, this study leads to rethink with Mill the relation between liberalism and “capitalism”.
