This work's contribution to scholarship derives principally from the presentation of sixty-eight texts, written by an influential group in late 18th and early 19th century French thought, comprising fifteen authors known collectively as the Ideologues. The present collection of texts offers the reader direct access to examples of their work, unlike previous studies of the Ideologues which focused on the group or particular individuals. The texts themselves are diverse in nature and cover a wide area of subject matter, illustrating the response of the writers to events at a time of political upheaval and their pursuit of fundamental principles and ultimate grounds of philosophical reference.

"... Overall, the book should be attractive to a number of different readerships: to the specialist historian, to the history student exploring the period perhaps for the first time, and to the more general reader seeking information on the Ideologues and their writings. The book now renders this information readily accessible." - Dr. Geoffrey Bromiley, University of Durham"
