Michel de Montaigne: Accidental Philosopher

9780511498169: Michel de Montaigne: Accidental Philosopher

Michel de Montaigne has always been acknowledged as a great literary figure but never thought of as a philosophical original. This book is the first to treat him as a serious thinker in his own right, taking as its point of departure Montaigne's description of himself as "an unpremeditated and accidental philosopher". This major reassessment of a much admired but also greatly underestimated thinker is for historians of philosophy and scholars in comparative literature, French studies and the history of ideas.

"Hartle [is] an accomplished scholar..."
-David Lewis Schaefer, The Review of Politics
"There is much in Hartle's book which is suggestive, and much which is extremely perceptive...she captures the flavour and explains the shapes of Montaigne's thinking really well."
The London Review of Books
"[Ann Hartle's] thesis should make her book of interest to any philosophically inclined reader, and especially to those who desire better to grasp the great temporal or rather argumentative fault lines of philosophy's course through history. It ought also to earn for the book the particular attention of Thomists and other friends of high Scholasticism, who better than most ought to know how much can be learned about one's friends from their foes[...]Hartle's scholarship is a model of its kind."
-John C. McCarthy, The Catholic University of America, The Thomist
