About the Author

Michel Eyquem, Seigneur de Montaigne, was born in 1553. He retired in 1571 to his lands at Montaigne, devoting himself to reading and reflection and composing his Essays (first version, 1580). He died at Montaigne in 1592 while preparing the final, and richest, edition of his Essays. M.A. Screech is an Extraordinary Fellow of Wolfson College and an Emeritus Fellow of All Souls College, Oxford. He has edited and translated both the complete edition and a selection of the Essays for Penguin Classics and, in a separate volume, Montaigne's sceptical Apology for Raymond Sebond. His other books include Erasmus: Ecstasy and the Praise of Folly, Rabelais, Montaigne and Melancholy, and, most recently, Laughter at the Foot of the Cross.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book of philosophy July 24, 2008
Format:Paperback
This material was written by Michel de Montaigne in the sixteenth century. It is a collecton of seven philophical essays. One is devoted to each of the following subjects: friendship, not being judgemental, the art of conversation, idleness, paternal affection towards their children, moderation, the nature of happiness while living.
I found this to be a very easy to read and enlightening collection of philosophy, that I believe you will enjoy also. The author of this work was very influential to many thinkers through out the centuries down to our time. This book was cited by a recent book I read by Joseph Epstein, Friendship, an expose.

"When the soul is without a definite aim she gets lost; for, as they say, if you are everywhere you are nowhere."

"I hold that you will never achieve by force what you cannot achieve by reason, intelligence and skill."

If you enjoyed the above examples you will love this book.
