De l'esprit; or, Essays on the mind and its several faculties by Helvétius( Book )

385 editions published between 1754 and 2016 in 6 languages and held by 1,677 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book opens with a discussion of the mind considered in itself. The next essay looks at the mind relative to society. The third essay discusses whether genius ought to be considered as a natural gift, or as an effect of education. Finally, the fourth essay looks at the different faculties of the mind."

A commentary and review of Montesquieu's Spirit of laws by Antoine Louis Claude Destutt de Tracy( Book )

36 editions published between 1811 and 1979 in English and held by 513 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Montesquieu's political treatise (1752) The Spirit of Laws covers a wide range of topics in politics, law, sociology, and anthropology. Montesquieu advocates constitutionalism and the separation of powers, the abolition of slavery, the preservation of civil liberties and the rule of law, and the idea that political and legal institutions ought to reflect the social and geographical character of each particular community. In the present book, de Tracy brings a scientific approach to explaining the motives, and hence the observed consequences, of various kinds of government styles. He systematically works through many substantial flaws in Montesquieu's work, and delves into Montesquieu's logical gaps. His values of personal liberty, human equality, and intellectual pursuit show through in every chapter. His explanations of economics and how different government organizations do or do not contribute to economic welfare and personal liberty are clever and clear; and he is frank in suggesting that economics as a theoretical subject warrants illumination by others."

28 editions published between 1981 and 1998 in French and held by 89 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the fourth of five volumes of the letters of the French philosopher Claude Adrien HelvTtius (1715-1771), author of the controversial De l'Esprit (1758). Featuring the correspondence of Mme HelvTtius, nTe Anne Catherine de Ligniville (1722-1800), in the years following her husband's death, this volume also includes letters by and to HelvTtius discovered since the publication of the first three volumes. Mme HelvTtius enjoyed an active widowhood, welcoming to her salon in Auteuil a group of intellectuals who came to be known as the IdTologues. A close friend of Benjamin Franklin, she was involved in political events before and during the French Revolution, as well as in Napoleon's coup d'Ttat. In the last letter of the series her grandson describes her burial in her garden, which took place without religious or revolutionary ceremony in the presence of all her favourite pets. Most of the newly discovered letters are addressed to HelvTtius by figures as important as d'Alembert, Boulanger, Chastellux, Saint-Lambert, Servan, Thieriot, and Trublet. Some of these complete an existing exchange, others provide dates for letters already published. The fifth and final volume will be devoted primarily to a comprehensive index. It will also include a chronological list of all the letters, corrections and modifications, and other useful material

Correspondance générale d'Helvetius by Helvétius( Book )

5 editions published in 1991 in French and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The third volumes of the Correspondance générale d'Helvétius offers readers further insight into a variety of aspects of life in eighteenth-century France. Claude-Adrian Helvétius (1715-71) was a wealthy and high-ranking member of French society. He was acquainted with the leading political and social figures of his time and, through family, with the court and government which he occasionally served in a diplomatic capacity. Philosopher, encyclopedist, and author of the explosive De l'Esprit, he and his wife, Anne Catherine de Ligneville, corresponded with the great and influential throughout Europe. The letters in this volume were written between 1761 and 1774, a period in which Helvétius enjoyed the fruits of his fame, travelled to England (1764) and Prussia (1765), and produced two books, Le Bonheur and De l'homme, which were published after his death
