Fun Trivia
Fran├žois-Marie Arouet (1694-1778) was a French philosopher known for his wit and for his insistence on the importance of freedom of speech and the separation of Church and State. He was a significant contributor to the development of historiography (the study of history as an academic discipline, and of the work of historians from a philosophical perspective), but is best known to many English readers for his "Letters" and for "Candide", a novella written to show how ridiculous Leibniz's philosophy of optimism was when carried to its logical conclusion.
