Abstract

Yves Guyot (1843-1928) eut une carrière marquée par de nombreux et fougueux militantismes. Journaliste, homme politique, ministre des Travaux publics, patron du Siècle puis de l'AGEFI, il devint finalement un mandarin non universitaire, présidant la Société d'économie politique, bastion de l'ultralibéralisme. Ses engagements concernèrent l'économie politique et la politique tout court, intérieure ou internationale. Sa campagne contre la police des Mœurs et son engagement dreyfusard furent mémorables. Ses convictions basées sur un matérialisme intransigeant, furent celles de l'individualisme et de l'utilitarisme. Admirateur des Lumières, il trouvait son idéal dans la société anglaise de son temps, dont il devint un familier et dont il épousa les valeurs. A spirited and manifold militancy pervaded Yves Guyot's (1843-1928) career. A journalist, a politician, a minister of the Public Works, head of Le Siècle then of the AGEFI, he eventually became a non-academic don as chairman of the Société d'économie politique, a bulwark of ultraliberalism. His commitments concern political economy and both home and foreign politics. His campaign against the legal enforcement of morality and his dreyfusard stance were momentous. His convinced individualism and utilitarianism were rooted in an uncompromising materialism. An admirer of the Enlightment, he found his ideal embodied in the english society of his time, which he became familiar with and whose values he came to share.
