Montaigne [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Montaigne by Arlette Jouanna Book Summary:

On l'imagine souvent retiré dans sa tour pour caresser les muses et élaborer une sagesse intemporelle. Mais Montaigne ne peut se résumer à l'image du philosophe voué à la contemplation. C'est un seigneur à la tête d'un vaste domaine, avec ses paysans, ses vignes et ses champs. Un gentilhomme pétri de culture nobiliaire, dont il brave les certitudes pour leur substituer un idéal inédit : conquérir la grandeur dans la médiocrité d'une existence ordinaire. Un ancien magistrat aussi, pénétré d'un riche savoir juridique, qu'il mit pour un temps en oeuvre au Parlement de Bordeaux, ville dont il deviendra le maire. Un acteur politique surtout, happé par la tourmente des guerres de religion, la violence des haines confessionnelles et la hantise de la mort qui ensanglante la France. On ne peut comprendre, écrit Arlette Jouanna, le destin singulier de cet homme d'exception sans mettre en miroir les différentes figures qui composent sa personnalité et le terroir historique dans lequel elles s'enracinent. C'est d'un regard d'historien qu'il faut en effet redécouvrir son itinéraire tumultueux et la fascinante diversité d'une pensée toujours en mouvement. Si Montaigne nous parle encore, c'est qu'au milieu des troubles civils, il en appelle à la raison publique pour transcender les intolérances ; c'est qu'il invite à affranchir l'esprit du poids des conventions arrêtées et des préjugés invincibles. Ni le vestige d'un passé révolu, ni le prédicateur d'un individualisme hédoniste, mais tout simplement notre contemporain.

Montaigne by Stefan Zweig Book Summary:

Auteur de nombreuses biographies (Fouché, Balzac, Marie­-Antoinette, Magellan,... ), Stefan Zweig dresse avec psychologie le portrait d'un homme libre et tolérant. Alors qu'il fuit la guerre dans le lointain Brésil, Stefan Zweig cherche dans l'œuvre de Montaigne à soulager son désespoir, mais aussi dans l'expérience vécue d'un homme qui se trouva dans une situation proche de la sienne. "Montaigne a fait la tentative la plus difficile qui soit sur Terre : vivre par soi­-même, être libre et le devenir toujours plus..."

How To Read Montaigne

Montaigne [Pdf/ePub] eBook

How To Read Montaigne by Terence Cave Book Summary:

Montaigne (1533-92) is commonly regarded as an early modern sceptic, standing at the threshold of a new secular way of thinking. He is also known for his ground-breaking exploration of the 'subject' or the 'self'. Terence Cave discusses these and other key aspects of the Essais (Montaigne's major work) not as philosophical themes but as features in the mapping of a mental landscape: the project of the Essais is cognitive rather than philosophical. Similarly, he reads the Essais not as 'essays' in the literary sense but as 'trials' or 'soundings' in which the manner of writing - the shape of the sentences, the use of metaphors and other figures - is crucial. Taking passages from many different chapters of the Essais, this book guides the reader through Montaigne's investigation of the 'subtle shades and stirrings' of the mind.

The Presence of Montaigne in the Lettres Persanes

Montaigne [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The Presence of Montaigne in the Lettres Persanes by John M. Bomer Book Summary:

Both Montaigne and Montesquieu were nobles from Gascony and representatives of the landed gentry, magistrates, and, above all, humanists and advocates of enlightenment. They held similar philosophical ideas on man's senses, stoicism, and suicide. They believed in the basic immutability of society's laws. As skeptical philosophers, they showed that ideas and theories are relative to society's constitution, that the object of love depends on health or whim, that gods are created according to our needs, that laws depend on the relative capability (or stupidity) of legislators. In the secret language of letter 66, Montesquieu chose Montaigne as the model of his 'Lettres persanes' and there revealed their close relationship as wits and humanists, each with a grand variety of sources.

Michel de Montaigne: Selected Essays (Dover Thrift Editions) by Michel de Montaigne Book Summary:

One of France's great Renaissance thinkers, Michel de Montaigne (1533–92) invented the essay as a literary form. This compilation features the best of his brief, highly readable reflections on poetry, philosophy, theology, law, literature, education, and world exploration.Remarkably modern in their views, the essays continue to resonate with readers as their author bemoans his failing memory, criticizes his culture's obsession with celebrity, and attempts to pursue a more spiritual life. Abounding in aphorisms and anecdotes, enlivened by wordplay and a delightful folksiness, Montaigne's writings constitute a celebration of literacy, friendship, and joie de vivre.

Montaigne in Barn Boots: An Amateur Ambles Through Philosophy

Montaigne in Barn Boots: An Amateur Ambles Through Philosophy by Michael Perry Book Summary:

The beloved memoirist and bestselling author of Population: 485 reflects on the lessons he’s learned from his unlikely alter ego, French Renaissance philosopher Michel de Montaigne."The journey began on a gurney," writes Michael Perry, describing the debilitating kidney stone that led him to discover the essays of Michel de Montaigne. Reading the philosopher in a manner he equates to chickens pecking at scraps—including those eye-blinking moments when the bird gobbles something too big to swallow—Perry attempts to learn what he can (good and bad) about himself as compared to a long-dead French nobleman who began speaking Latin at the age of two, went to college instead of kindergarten, worked for kings, and once had an audience with the Pope. Perry "matriculated as a barn-booted bumpkin who still marks a second-place finish in the sixth-grade spelling bee as an intellectual pinnacle . . . and once said hello to Merle Haggard on a golf cart."Written in a spirit of exploration rather than declaration, Montaigne in Barn Boots is a down-to-earth (how do you pronounce that last name?) look into the ideas of a philosopher "ensconced in a castle tower overlooking his vineyard," channeled by a midwestern American writing "in a room above the garage overlooking a disused pig pen." Whether grabbing an electrified fence, fighting fires, failing to fix a truck, or feeding chickens, Perry draws on each experience to explore subjects as diverse as faith, race, sex, aromatherapy, and Prince. But he also champions academics and aesthetics, in a book that ultimately emerges as a sincere, unflinching look at the vital need to be a better person and citizen.

How to Live: Or A Life of Montaigne in One Question and Twenty Attempts at an Answer by Sarah Bakewell Book Summary:

Winner of the 2010 National Book Critics Circle Award for BiographyHow to get along with people, how to deal with violence, how to adjust to losing someone you love—such questions arise in most people’s lives. They are all versions of a bigger question: How do you live?

Perpetual Motion: Transforming Shapes in the Renaissance from da Vinci to Montaigne (Parallax: Re-visions of Culture and Society)

Montaigne [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Perpetual Motion: Transforming Shapes in the Renaissance from da Vinci to Montaigne (Parallax: Re-visions of Culture and Society) by Michel Jeanneret Book Summary:

The popular conception of the Renaissance as a culture devoted to order and perfection does not account for an important characteristic of Renaissance art: many of the period's major works, including those by da Vinci, Erasmus, Michelangelo, Ronsard, and Montaigne, appeared as works-in-progress, always liable to changes and additions. In Perpetual Motion, Michel Jeanneret argues for a sixteenth century swept up in change and fascinated by genesis and metamorphosis.Jeanneret begins by tracing the metamorphic sensibility in sixteenth-century science and culture. Theories of creation and cosmology, of biology and geology, profoundly affected the perspectives of leading thinkers and artists on the nature of matter and form. The conception of humanity (as understood by Pico de Mirandola, Erasmus, Rabelais, and others), reflections upon history, the theory and practice of language, all led to new ideas, new genres, and a new interest in the diversity of experience. Jeanneret goes on to show that the invention of the printing press did not necessarily produce more stable literary texts than those transmitted orally or as hand-printed manuscripts―authors incorporated ideas of transformation into the process of composing and revising and encouraged creative interpretations from their readers, translators, and imitators. Extending the argument to the visual arts, Jeanneret considers da Vinci's sketches and paintings, changing depictions of the world map, the mythological sculptures in the gardens of Prince Orsini in Bomarzo, and many other Renaissance works. More than fifty illustrations supplement his analysis.

The Courtesan and the Gigolo: The Murders in the Rue Montaigne and the Dark Side of Empire in Nineteenth-Century Paris

Montaigne [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The Courtesan and the Gigolo: The Murders in the Rue Montaigne and the Dark Side of Empire in Nineteenth-Century Paris by Aaron Freundschuh Book Summary:

The intrigue began with a triple homicide in a luxury apartment building just steps from the Champs-Elyseés, in March 1887. A high-class prostitute and two others, one of them a child, had been stabbed to death―the latest in a string of unsolved murders targeting women of the Parisian demimonde. Newspapers eagerly reported the lurid details, and when the police arrested Enrico Pranzini, a charismatic and handsome Egyptian migrant, the story became an international sensation. As the case descended into scandal and papers fanned the flames of anti-immigrant politics, the investigation became thoroughly enmeshed with the crisis-driven political climate of the French Third Republic and the rise of xenophobic right-wing movements. Aaron Freundschuh's account of the "Pranzini Affair" recreates not just the intricacies of the investigation and the raucous courtroom trial, but also the jockeying for status among rival players―reporters, police detectives, doctors, and magistrates―who all stood to gain professional advantage and prestige. Freundschuh deftly weaves together the sensational details of the case with the social and political undercurrents of the time, arguing that the racially charged portrayal of Pranzini reflects a mounting anxiety about the colonial "Other" within France's own borders. Pranzini's case provides a window into a transformational decade for the history of immigration, nationalism, and empire in France.

The Age of Reason Begins: A History of European Civilization in the Period of Shakespeare, Bacon, Montaigne, Rembrandt, Galileo, and Descartes: 1558 - ... series, Book 7) (The Story of Civilization) by Will Durant Book Summary:

[Read by Grover Gardner] This seventh volume of Will and Ariel Durant's renowned series, The Story of Civilization, chronicles the history of European civilization from 1558 to 1648. The Age of Reason Begins brings together a fascinating network of stories in the discussion of the bumpy road toward the Enlightenment. This is the age of great monarchs and greater artists - on the one hand, Elizabeth the First of England, Philip II of Spain, and Henry IV of France; on the other, Shakespeare, Cervantes, Montaigne, and Rembrandt. It also encompasses the heyday of Francis Bacon, Galileo, Giordano Bruno, and Descartes, the fathers of modern science and philosophy. But it is equally an age of extreme violence, a moment in which all Europe was embroiled in the horrible Thirty Years' War - in some respects, the real first world war. This chapter in cultural history is one that can't be missed.
