Jacques Bidet is Professor on the collage of Paris-X, retaining the chair of Political Philosophy and Theories of Society. His different guides contain Théorie de los angeles modernité(1990), John Rawls et l. a. théorie de los angeles justice (1995), Théorie générale, Théorie du droit, de l’économie et de los angeles politique (1999) and Explication et reconstruction du 'Capital' (2004).
