Conference given by Andrew Jainchill, invited to the European Studies Research Seminars, orgagnized by the P.C. Hoofthuis te Amsterdam
Jainchills abstract luidt als volgt: “The marquis d’Argenson was an important eighteenth-century political thinker and politician who was widely read in his own day (most famously by Rousseau), but has remained surprisingly neglected by historians of eighteenth-century France. Using both his published and unpublished writings, I will analyze d’Argenson’s ideas for reforming the French monarchy and discuss their place in the development of eighteenth-century French political thought.“
De lezing vindt plaats in het kader van de European Studies Research Seminars.
