We discuss possible analogs between magnetic hysteresis in soft magnetic materials and hysteresis in phase transformations.  Recent work on the hysteresis in phase transformations indicates that an energy barrier associated to a large localized disturbance plays a central role, and this barrier is sensitive to conditions of compatibility.  It was once believed that a similar explanation was relevant to magnetic hysteresis.  However, detailed quantitative studies of the barrier based on linear stability analysis did not support this idea – the resulting discrepancy was called the “Coercivity Paradox”.  We think the basic idea was correct (supported also by [1]) but the use of linear stability analysis was wrong.  We therefore revisit the existence of energy barriers in soft magnetism and suggest a quantitative resolution of the coercivity paradox. [1] Nicholas Pilet, The relation between magnetic hysteresis and the micromagnetic state, explored by quantitative magnetic force microscopy, Thesis, University of Basel (2006)[2] Chen, X., Srivastava, V., Dabade, V. & James, R.
