This panel will focus on uncovering the ideas and philosophies proposed by seventeenth- and eighteenth-century French writers to criticize, change, or improve their world. We will discuss their personal ideas, beliefs, and value systems in light of the reality of their time. Seventeenth- and eighteenth-century authors will include female and male philosophers, moralists, essayists, poets, novelists, and playwrights. The method of analysis is open.
