C.A. Helvétius (1715-1771), význačný představitel francouzského materialismu 18. století, vyšel z Lockeova sensualismu a zabýval se ve svém filosofickém díle především člověkem, morálkou, politikou a náboženstvím. Byl odpůrcem asketického ideálu, hlásaného církví, dokazoval, že umění žít a hledání pozemského štěstí je přirozeným úkolem člověka. Zdůrazňoval kladný význam vášní, pokud jsou správně řízeny mozkem. V politice byl odpůrcem despotismu a důsledně odmítal náboženství. Proto také obě jeho hlavní díla, "O duchu" a "O člověku" byla katolickou církví zatracena a spálena. - Výbor podává po prvé v českém překladu podstatné části z obou uvedených děl, thematicky seřazené do 6 oddílů: Principy. Mravnost. O despotismu. O náboženství. O zákonech. O výchově. - V úvodní studii je podán stručný životopis Helvétiův a kritické zhodnocení jeho díla s hlediska dialektického materialismu

A commentary and review of Montesquieu's Spirit of laws by Antoine Louis Claude Destutt de Tracy( Book )
24 editions published between 1811 and 1969 in English and held by 588 libraries worldwide
"Montesquieu's political treatise (1752) The Spirit of Laws covers a wide range of topics in politics, law, sociology, and anthropology. Montesquieu advocates constitutionalism and the separation of powers, the abolition of slavery, the preservation of civil liberties and the rule of law, and the idea that political and legal institutions ought to reflect the social and geographical character of each particular community. In the present book, de Tracy brings a scientific approach to explaining the motives, and hence the observed consequences, of various kinds of government styles. He systematically works through many substantial flaws in Montesquieu's work, and delves into Montesquieu's logical gaps. His values of personal liberty, human equality, and intellectual pursuit show through in every chapter. His explanations of economics and how different government organizations do or do not contribute to economic welfare and personal liberty are clever and clear; and he is frank in suggesting that economics as a theoretical subject warrants illumination by others."
