Editorial Reviews


"This book of essays clarifies the political inspiration of Montaigne's Essais. Insofar as the Essais were the breviary of the eighteenth century philosophes who provided the conceptual ground for the American and French Revolutions, it cannot be underscored enough that Montaigne's politics continue to exert influence on our lives and times. The scholars contributing to this volume demonstrate that Etienne de la Boetie's terse pamphlet that sketched out a logic of tyrannicide was not a piece of juvenile rhetoric. It was a precocious tract with which Montaigne shared strong affiliation....No student of the relation of politics and aesthetics in early modern Europe will fail to profit from the careful and inspired work of the authors."-Tom Conley Professor of Romance Languages and Literatures Harvard University

Book Description

Examines the relationship between Montaigne's Essays, one of the classic works of the French philosophical and literary traditions, and the writings attributed by Montaigne to his friend, the French humanist Étienne de la Boétie.
