Rousseau (Folio Biographies) (French Edition) by Raymond Trousson

By Raymond Trousson

'Je ne veux pas argumenter avec vous, ni même tenter de vous convaincre ; il me suffit de vous exposer ce que je pense dans l. a. simplicité de mon cœur […]. Souvenez-vous toujours que je n’enseigne aspect mon sentiment, je l’expose.'

Célèbre à 38 ans, Rousseau (1712-1776) fut pour ses contemporains tantôt le paradoxal sophiste des Discours, tantôt le maître des âmes sensibles révélé par l. a. Nouvelle Héloïse, tantôt le législateur intransigeant du Contrat social. Déifié par une Révolution anxieuse de se découvrir un père spirituel, le plus souvent honni par un XIXe siècle qui le dénonce, ici comme un anarchiste, là comme un prophète du totalitarisme, il est présent à tous les moments de crise où se cherche l’Occident. Créateur, avec Les Confessions, de l’autobiographie moderne, il est, disait François Mauriac, 'l’un de nous', toujours agissant et vivant. Au-delà de l’œuvre, capitale, l’homme, séduisant, rebutant, contradictoire et complexe, n’a cessé de susciter les prises de place les plus passionnées.

Montaigne. La vie sans loi (Tandem) (French Edition) by Pierre Manent

By Pierre Manent

Il va de soi aujourd’hui que Montaigne est notre ami. Il nous captive, nous émeut, nous convince. Mais Montaigne nous trompe. Il nous conduit par le bout du nez. Nous devons donc faire un attempt vigoureux pour échapper à son charme et saisir ce qu’il a vraiment voulu dire.
Montaigne est engagé dans une entreprise de recomposition des autorités, dont le moi de chacun de nous voudrait être l’heureux héritier. Il faut entrer dans son atelier pour découvrir ce que cette entreprise comporte d’audace et de ruse, de vertu et de vice, de vérité et de mensonge.
Montaigne en devient moins aimable, mais beaucoup plus grand qu’une culture complaisante ne l’a fait. En le comprenant comme il s’est compris lui-même, nous verrons plus clair dans ce que nous sommes devenus après lui et, pour une half, à reason de lui. C’est de nous qu’il s’agit.
