Chapter Summary

This index section presents the list of names, terms and concepts that occur in the book titled Joseph de Maistre and his European Readers. There may have been a time when Joseph de Maistre could have been pigeon-holed and nicely set aside as an exhibit of a Catholic and monarchical reaction to the French Revolution. Two major developments, suggests that the nature, significance, and influence of his thought require reconsideration: the resurgence of religious factors in the contemporary global political situation, and an important new body of scholarship about Maistre himself. As traditional immigrant populations grow in Europe and North America and Judaeo-Christian traditions emerge reinvigorated, Western democracies face new political challenges in the form of religion's self-reassertion as a legitimate source of public reason.

Keywords:Europe; Joseph de Maistre; Judaeo-Christian tradition
