About Charles Maurras

  • Charles-Marie-Photius Maurras (; French: [?a?l mo?as]; 20 April 1868 – 16 November 1952) was a French author, politician, poet, and critic.
  • He was an organizer and principal philosopher of Action Française, a political movement that was monarchist, anti-Semitic, anti-parliamentarist, and counter-revolutionary.
  • Maurras' ideas greatly influenced National Catholicism and "nationalisme intĂ©gral".
  • A major tenet of integral nationalism was stated by Maurras as "a true nationalist places his country above everything".
  • He was one of the few eminent and probably the most important of all French ethnic nationalists, being naturally opposed to republican universalism and liberalism, advocating for corporatism, order, hierarchy and an organically decentralised France.
  • A political theorist and a major intellectual influence in early 20th-century Europe, his views influenced several far-right ideologies; it also anticipated some of the ideas of fascism.
