1. Conservatism

Main ideasconservatism itself in XVIII Art. enhliyets Edmund Burke (1729-1797). In determining its outlook was a respect for tradition. Align their actions withexisting tradition is a manifestation of the mind of man. Current в social lawsconsidered this is recognized theoretician of conservatism, it should providebalance and stability. Anyone who is interested in maintaining peace and order, should follow in order tothis equilibrium is not violated.Radical measures are harmful to Publicdevelopment primarily because it violates the trenchnovahu and can cause chaos.

The politician, who intends to makereform should not considercountry as a blank sheet of paper on which you can write whatever you feel like it.The need to improve the life of the country, according to Burke, should blend in with the statesmanattempt save the best that exists insociety. Treated with approval heto the reforms that are fired to prevent revolution or renewalare you traditional principles. Example of recent reforms, he believed "Glorious revolution" in 1688 p., which restored the monarchy in England.

Another European theorist of conservatism believesavoy Count Josefa de Mestre (1753-1821).Observation of the changes that took place during the French Revolution end XVIII Art., made the enemy of revolutionary changes insociety. Strongly criticized Mestre de France educators. He considered groundless assertion that the power hiscrazy people can create new social and political order. Graf followedview of the fact that state and law createdGod, and the person is unable to refine it. Thereupon he categoricallyrejected the possibility of introducing a constitutionalthis,because they embody "God's mind." De Mestre ubachav opportunityimprovement of society in strengthening the role of religion in it. He put forward the ideaEuropean monarchy to be headed by the Pope. NaturalHuman Rights, which declared French educators, de Mestre,is fiction.

2. Liberalism

The opposite of conservatism were ideas of liberalism.In England they have been formulated JeremiahBentham (1748 - 1832). He viewed society as a bunch of people withtheir own interests. Prosperity of society, according to Bentham, perhapsonly ensure individual rights, inviolability of privateproperty. Actions that infringe on these rights should be considered crimes and prohibitlaws. Jeremy maintained freebusiness, believed that its developmenttion, there shall be noobstacles than those that limit the possible harm to others.

Categorically rejecting the possibilitysocial progress through revolution,Jeremy tie it to reform. Unlike from conservatives, heubachav in that time the political system EnglandMany remnants of ancient traditions that did not meet the needs ofBam and timeneeded a way to eliminate the implementation of relevant reforms.

In France, the ideals of liberalism espoused Benzhamen-Henry Constant (1767-1830). Indeed he believed that a free society, inwhich recognizes the priority rights of the individual. The interests of the government and the masses, shall be secondary to human rights. Constant defended freebusiness and insisted that the state should not have his opportunitieslimit.

Only a constitutional monarchy canguarantee the rights of the middle class. Ways of restricting the power of it in its ubachavdistribution, as well as in public Dumnyi.

3. Nationalism

Many historians call XIX Art. era of nationalism. Nationalism was, according tosome scientists, one of nayvplyvovishyh andmost sustainable ideas of human history. Home Sewcreation of a Europeanviews of nationalism put French Revolution end XVIII Art., which proclaimed the union of free citizens of a nationAnd the source of state authority. With the Napoleonic wars were new ideasspread in Europe. Napoleon I, which modern historians have called"Nomadic trader nationalism,supported the national movements in Italy and Poland also caused by their actions explosion of patriotic feelings among Captivepeoples who had their own state.

Further development of ideas of nationalismwas associated with 0Shyalnyistyu German philosophers. As a result of the defeat of PrussiaRail against Napoleon (1806), philosopher Johann-GottliebFichte (1762-1814) called on Germans in his "Address to the Germantiatsiyi "to national revival, due to which they can achievecultural leadership in Europe.

Johann Gottlieb Fichte-

 

Theoreticalthe basis of nationalism found in the ideas of romanticism, which promoted a great artistic value of national languageand traditionalthis. German philosopher-romantic Johann Herder-Hotfrits (1744- 1803) much attention paid to those Slavicnations that were in while deprived of its ownstatehood. Thanks to the original traditions andculture, they maintained, Herder predicted that the future, theycreate their own national state. Separately, German philosopher definedUkrainian and argued that "Ukraine onceform new Hellas ". Georg-Friedrich-WilhelmHegel (1770-1831) rejectedcapture folk culture Palmmanufacturers, but supported the idea of anational states in Europe. He considered it not only the most optimal formassociation of citizens for the sake of realizing the ideals of freedom, security and happiness, but asexpression of divine ideas. National Power, According to Hegel, was the highest stage of social development.

Among historians remain dividedas to whom considertheorists of nationalism. Some scientists find origins of this current in the works of Jean-Jacques Rousseau and EdmundBurke, others believe the founder ofnationalist Friedrich List. MaybeThis difference of opinion stems from the fact matched nationalism у XIX Art. a universalphenomenon of history.
