Joseph de Maistre's life, thought and influence : selected studies

Joseph de Maistre's reaction to the Enlightenment and the French Revolution was open and included theorising about human phenomena. This book provides a portrait of Maistre as a thinker in various fields, upsetting the image of him as a 'reactionary,' a reinterpretation furthered by interest in Counter-Enlightenment thought.
