Voltaire

November 30, 2015 | | 3 Comments

Voltaire, whose real name was Francois-Marie Arouet, was a french philosopher and writer during the age of enlightenment. His intelligence, wit, and style of writing and his philosophical views made him one of France’s greatest writers and philosophers.

He was a supporter of social reform (including the defense of civil liberties, freedom of religion and free trade), despite the strict censorship laws and made use of his satirical works to criticize catholic dogma and the french institutions of his day. His works and ideas influenced important key thinkers in both america and the french revolution.
