Maurras’ Theory of the Four Stages ABSTRACT: In this article the author tries to illustrate how Charles Maurras, the leader of French integral nationalism, interlaces Nationalism, Positivism, Federalism, and Catholicism in order to ground his own reactionary thought. By defining «Anti-France» the conjunction of « four confederate states of Protestants, Jews, Freemasons and foreigners (métèques) », he develops the idea that only monarchy could provide France with a symbol of continuity and statehood. It would be decentralized against métèques, who rule the central republican institutions for helping each other; hereditary against Jews, who menace the purity of French blood; traditional against Protestants, who overwhelm France with a non-Latin culture; anti-Parliamentary against Freemasons, who control almost all the newspapers. Hence, Maurras draws his conclusion that France does need an absolute monarchy against its « internal foreigners ».
