Notes

General Note
Translation of: L'Homme révolté.
Description
This book is a classic essay on revolution. For the author, the urge to revolt is one of the "essential dimensions" of human nature, manifested in man's timeless Promethean struggle against the conditions of his existence, as well as the popular uprisings against established orders throughout history. And yet, with an eye toward the French Revolution and its regicides and deicides, he shows how inevitably the course of revolution leads to tyranny.
Language
In English, translated from the French.
