The Style of Paris : Renaissance Origins of the French Enlightenment
by George Huppert




Overview -

. . . impressive and challenging reevaluation of the sixteenth-century origins of the Enlightenment. --Sixteenth Century Journal

In this book, George Huppert introduces the reader to a group of talented young men, some of them teenagers, who were the talk of the town in Renaissance Paris. They called themselves philosophes, they wrote poetry, they studied Greek and mathematics--and they entertained subversive notions concerning religion and politics. Classically trained, they wrote, nevertheless, in French, so as to reach the widest possible audience. These young radicals fostered a succession of disciples who expressed confidence in the eventual enlightenment of humankind and whose ideas would bear fruit two centuries later.
