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.

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
