1. Two complementary volumes appeared at roughly the same time in
French: Violence et civilité: Th e Wellek Library Lectures et autres essais de
philosophie politique and Citoyen- sujet et autres essais d’anthropologie
2. Th e whole of the work of the colloquium, by Robert Castel, Catherine
Colliot- Th élène, and Bertrand Ogilvie, unfortunately remains unpublished.
3. W. B. Gallie, “Essentially Contested Concepts.” I owe the discovery of this
classic reference in the English- speaking world to Nestor Capdev ila.
4. For reasons of space and to preserve a suffi cient temporal proximity among
the texts, I do not republish the essay “Sujets ou citoyens? (pour l’égalité),”
published in 1984 [and unpublished in English— tr.]—the origin of these refl ec-
tions in general and on several par tic u lar points. Th ere I spoke in conclusion of
the “co- citizenship” of nationals and foreigners.
introduction. Th e Antinomy of Citizenship
1. Th is essay is a reworking of the Cassal Lecture in French Culture, delivered
May 12, 2009, at the University of London, under the title “Antinomies of Citizen-
ship.” I thank the Institute of Germanic and Romance Studies and its director,
Naomi Segal, the Humanities and Arts Research Centre de Royal Holloway
College, and Professor Mandy Merck.
