Summary/Abstract: A philosophical dialogue written by the creator of traditionalist conservatism on the earthly rule of Providence, which combines literary qualities with great polemic passion. Famous for their controversiality and often quoted Joseph de Maistre’s arguments: praise of the executioner, apology of war, anti-enlightenment philippics. The age of revolution seen through the eyes of a conservative aristocrat – a devout jacobine, whose works astonish and drives to despair his admirers and opponents.
