Book Excerpt: 
. . .Brahmins is incontestably more ancient than that of the Jews; that it was not until a late period that the Jews could write in the Canaanitish language, since it was not until late that they established themselves in the little country of Canaan. They say the Indians were always inventors, and the Jews always imitators; the Indians always ingenious, and the Jews always rude. They say it is difficult to believe that Adam, who was fair and had hair on his head, was father to the negroes, who are entirely black, and have black wool. What, indeed, do they not say? As for me, I say nothing; I leave these researches to the Reverend Father Berruyer of the Society of Jesus. He is the most perfect Innocent I have ever known; the book has been burned, as that of a man who wished to turn the Bible into ridicule; but I am quite sure he had no such wicked end in view.

Spassoso, brillante, accattivante, polemico e... superficiale.

لا يستلزم هذا الكتاب قراءة متصلة. و لكن من أي موضع يفتحه القارىء سيجد فيه مادة جديرة بالتأمل. إن أكثر الكتب فائدة هي تلك الكتب التي يؤلف القراء أنفسهم نصفها. فهم يتوسعون في الأفكار التي تُقدم بذرتها إليهم. و يصوبون ما يبدو خاطئا. و يعززون بتأملاتهم ما يبدو لهم ضعيفا.

There is the history of opinions, which is hardly anything but a collection of human errors.

"كيف أمَكن لإنسان أن يُصبح سيد إنسان آخر؟ بأي نوع مِن السِّحر المُبَهم استطاع أن يُصبح سيد أناس آخرين كثيرين؟
يجب أن نتفق على أن كل الناس قد ولدوا متساوين وأن العنف والمهارة قد صنَعا الأسياد الأولين، وتكفَّلت القوانين

Aptly described as 'a deplorable monument of the extent to which inteligence and erudition can be abused'. The circumcised selection of topics illustrate how truly limited Voltaire's supposed erudition was. Pick up only if you want to while away empty hours in trains, plotting definitive revolutions

Wonderful. This book exemplifies everything positive about the enlightenment. Voltaire is clear, crisp, witty and learned. He was a formidable enemy of the establishment, wielding his immense reading, logic and irony like a scalpel, cutting through the obfuscation and bullshit of the aristocracy and

شاید از عنوان کتاب فکر کنیم با یک دایرةالمعارف حجیم مواجه هستیم ولی این کتاب یا بهتر بگویم کتابچه تنها شامل چهل وسه مقاله کوتاه از ولتر است

در خواندن آثار چنین متفکران چیزی که بیشتر باید مدنظر قرار گیرد تاثیری است که عقاید آن ها بر جامعه خویش و تحولات فکری داشته اند.ولتر از بزگترین متفکران قرن 18 فرن
