Vie de M. Turgot
Should you care about the Enlightenment? Yes, you should, and more than a little, says Emma Rothschild, the distinguished British economist. Smith is the most famous of these, of course, and the most politically influential in our time. He lived from to , and while serving as professor of moral philosophy at Glasgow University wrote The Wealth of Nations and The Theory of the Moral Sentiments. Condorcet was a major player in reformist phases of the French Revolution, churning out treatises on the proper design of democratic political procedures, public education, and human progress. He died while in hiding and on the run from the Jacobins. In her delicate and captivating portraits of these Enlightenment figures, Rothschild reveals an intellectual world of skepticism, reason, and hopefulness about the human condition.

When he was sixteen, his analytical abilities gained the praise of Jean le Rond d'Alembert and Alexis Clairaut ; soon, Condorcet would study under d'Alembert. From to , he focused on science. In , he published another paper on integral calculus.
