TOME III

La Défense de mon oncle, A Warburton

Voltaire's clever and moving defence of his Philosophie de l'histoire against an attack by Pierre Henri Larcher, lets his wit and insight shine through on a dizzying array of topics, and ultimately the defence of his fundamental beliefs about historical writing and Enlightenment principles. Penned in a week at the age of 73, it is an impassioned apologia of Voltaire’s rational system of approaching history and civilization.
