Essais by Michel de Montaigne

By Michel de Montaigne

Qu'est-ce que l'homme ? Qu'est-ce que l'autre ? remark être sage ? remark vivre heureux ? Le XVIe siècle ne parvient plus à répondre à ces questions avec coverage. Le traumatisme des guerres de faith et, avant lui, los angeles découverte du Nouveau Monde ont ébranlé les certitudes. C'est dans ce contexte que Michel de Montaigne s'attelle à un projet singulier : dessiner son propre portrait pour mieux "peindre l'humaine condition". Jour après jour, pendant vingt ans, il observe ses réflexions dans ses Essais, une oeuvre aux frontières de l'autoportrait, du recueil de morceaux choisis et du traité de morale. Ce quantity rassemble les passages des Essais les plus représentatifs de l. a. pensée de l'auteur sur l'être humain, le monde et los angeles société.
