The "New Left" in France

Winner, Percy
July 1955
New Republic;7/18/55, Vol. 133 Issue 3, p14
The article comments on political developments all round the world. Since 1947, however, Communism has steadily lost ground with French intellectuals. And it is typical of an even greater change which has been taking place in the intellectual climate during the last year that Frenchmen have begun to express doubts about the Left. The idea and the fact of the political Left are being re-examined. The relations of Communism in and to the Left are very much in question. It is, of course, a discussion primarily of thoughts and theories. But in France the theories and the practice of politics have always been closely related.
