The essay analyzes Bobbio’s thought with respect to its XXth century political and cultural milieu. Two aspects are stressed as original. First, Bobbio’s thought paid great attention to the « lesson of the classics». Consequently he was able to avoid the search for apparent novelties at any price which characterizes so much XXth century philosophy and he rejected the philosophy which reflected the general « positivistic» attitude which had gained so much support in the social sciences. Secondly, Bobbio’s thought is original in so far as he was able to put together, especially with respect to the theme of democracy, the normative dimension and political realism. He criticized both the marxian contempt for bourgeois freedom rights and the neoliberal one for social rights. The democratic regimes founded on either of these premises hide old and new despotisms. For this lesson, Salazar concludes, Bobbio himself should be considered a classic of political thought.
