Fairly early essay by Mme de Staël, written during the French revolution, at first sight classicist, almost Epictetan in its stoicism. Yet the luminous notion of humanity's gradual progression is present in a shape & with a power almost equal to the writing of Staël's renowned friend Condorcet. Rousseau also makes his influence known in this remarkable & underexposed text which rings with the independence, clarity, & measure for which the writing of Mme de Staël is known. ( )
