“To prohibit the reading of certain books is to declare the inhabitants to be either fools or slaves.”

Claude Adrien Helvétius

 

A 1790 printing of the works of Claude Helvetius. In many of his works, including ‘On the Mind’, Helvetius argues over the human mind and rejects metaphysics as a scientific truth, replacing Christian morals with ethics and stressing the importance of education as the key to human behaviors. More controversy came from this works, largely due to his stance that human genius was not biologically determined, but ‘rested on education; the genius was made, not born.’ (Naginski 95).

 

This five-volume edition was published in Paris by Briand following the Parisian Parliament’s condemnation of Helvetius’s works.
