    Nicholas Binion bien sur! Absoutement! Mais, il le sait ca!
    Nicholas Binion commented :
    He was the best of philosophers in the best of all possible worlds, sans doute! Now I have Bobby McFerrin doing Meher Baba in my head wouldn’t you know?
    Nathan Curry commented :
    He was very gifted. He didn’t understand butterflies and the mistakes that would follow in mainstream chemistry. Very cultivated and clarified man though.
    Nicholas Binion commented :
    He’s quotable and I recall finding him more fun to read in French than Descartes, mostly because he liked allegory and had such good stories. We started with Gargantua and got to Candide which of course is where Pangloss shows up. Voltaire humored Louis the IVth and perhaps also contributed to the atmosphere of revolution that followed. He was right o say that common sense isn’t so common. I particularly like the quote that you found.
    Nathan Curry commented :
    Descartes was much more blocked. He didn’t understand mathematics. Voltaire did.
