Description

Excerpt from Chamfort, Etude sur Sa Vie, Son Caractere Et Ses Ecrits: These Presentee A la Faculte des Lettres de Paris Les grands ecrivains du xvm siecle, dont les oeuvres ont prepare la Revolution francaise, ne la croyaient point si proche, et, sans doute, s'ils eussent vecu, ils n'auraient pu ni voulu yjouer un role. On aeu raison de les nommer des philosophes; ils n'etaient point faits pour sortir de la sphere de la speculation. Cette societe, que condamnaient leurs livres, ils s'y plaisaient en somme; Rousseau, lui - meme, l'aimait au fond. Leur intelligence s'eprit des idees de reforme mais elles ne pas sionnerent point leur ame. Ils eussent ete non seulement efirayes et indignes par les violences de la Revolution, mais surpris etchoques de ses belles ardeurs.
