Jean-Jacques Rousseau was an eighteenth century writer and philosopher born in Geneva (Switzerland) in 1712. You can read the details of his early life here. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jean-Jacques_Rousseau His famous works include Du Contrat Social (The Social Contract), Les Confessions , and Essai sur l origine des langues (Essay on the origin of languages) which was published posthumously. In addition to writing he was also a philosopher and philosophized greatly about nature and the idea of the noble savage (which was also a preoccupation of some of Rousseau s contemporaries like Voltaire). He also talked about the concept of freedom, and one of his most famous quotes is L’homme est né libre et partout il est dans les fers (man is born free and yet everywhere he is in chains). These ideas were very poignant at the time and in the decades following these Enlightenment thinkers as France was pulled into the turmoil of the Revolution and the ensuing Reign of Terror.

Emmanuel Todd (born 16 May 1951) is a French historian , anthropologist , demographer , sociologist and political scientist at the National Institute of Demographic Studies (INED) in Paris. His research examines the different types of families worldwide and how there are matching beliefs, ideologies and political systems, and the historical events involving these things.
Todd attracted attention in 1976 when he, at 25 years old, predicted the fall of the Soviet Union , based on indicators such as increasing infant mortality rates: La chute finale: Essais sur la décomposition de la sphère Soviétique (The Final Fall: An Essay on the Decomposition of the Soviet Sphere).
François-Marie Arouet ( French: [fʁɑ̃.swa ma.ʁi aʁ.wɛ] ; 21 November 1694 – 30 May 1778), known by his nom de plume Voltaire ( / v oʊ l ˈ t ɛər / ;  French: [vɔl.tɛːʁ] ), was a French Enlightenment writer, historian, and philosopher famous for his wit, his attacks on the established Catholic Church, and his advocacy of freedom of religion , freedom of speech , and separation of church and state.
Voltaire was a versatile writer, producing works in almost every literary form, including plays, poems, novels, essays, and historical and scientific works. He wrote more than 20,000 letters and more than 2,000 books and pamphlets.  He was an outspoken advocate of civil liberties, despite the risk this placed him in under the strict censorship laws of the time. As a satirical polemicist , he frequently made use of his works to criticize intolerance, religious dogma, and the French institutions of his day.

The same thing Erykah Badu and Joaquin Phoenix have in common with Cesar Chavez , Pythagoras and Leonardo da Vinci. Besides capturing the hearts and minds of generations, all are vegan. By not wearing fur, leather, wool, silk and down, nor consuming milk, cheese, eggs, honey and the meat of any land or marine animal, they made a compassionate decision to directly save the lives of thousands of animals.
When I became vegan on July 24, 1996, and finally understood that animals had an inherent right to be free and live completely unfettered by human domination, I wondered why it took more than 25 years to attain this nonviolent awakening.
Freedom to read can never be taken for granted. Even in Canada, a free country by world standards, books and magazines are banned at the border. Schools and libraries are regularly asked to remove books and magazines from their shelves. Free expression on the Internet is under attack. Few of these stories make headlines, but they affect the right of Canadians to decide for themselves what they choose to read.
Freedom to Read Week is an annual event that encourages Canadians to think about and reaffirm their commitment to intellectual freedom, which is guaranteed them under the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. See what’s coming in this year’s Freedom to Read review. [ more ]
Although these debates originally took place between Roman Catholics and secular Rationalists, fundamental differences between different Roman Catholic positions rapidly became apparent and assumed central importance. The debates also drew attention from Reformed Protestant thinkers. Eventually the debates sparked smaller discussions among scholars in English, German, Spanish, Portuguese and Italian-speaking circles, and these continue to the present day. This article provides a brief overview of the most important contributors, the central issues and the main positions of these debates.
The use of the term “Christian philosophy” and other similar expressions dates back to the early Christian era. However, considerable ambiguity surrounding the term pervades philosophical reflection regarding Christian philosophy’s possibility, historical reality and nature, and therefore affects efforts to generate and evaluate particular Christian philosophies. The 1930s French Debates represent a period of the most sustained and systematic examination of the problems concerning Christian philosophy, and are thus of philosophical significance for various reasons.

Adelson, Medieval Commerce (Princeton, N.J.: D. Van Nostrand Co., 1962) "Reading No. 32: A Description of Mainz by al-Tartushi, who visited that city in 1083 A.D., quoted by Qazwini in the Thirteenth Century." "Mainz is a very large city which is in part inhabited and the rest is sown [with crops]. It is situated in the land of the Franks on a river called the Rhine, and it is rich in wheat, barley, spelt, vineyard, and fruit. Dirhems (i.e. Moslem silver coins) from Samarcand of the years 301 A.H. (i.e. 913-914 A.D.) and 302 A.H. (i.e. 913-914 A.D.) are found there with the names of the issuing ruler and the date of issue. Al-Tartushi says, ‘I hold them to be coins of the Samanid Nasr ibn Ahmed (i.e. the ruler of Samarcand in the years 914-943 A.D.).’ On occasion spice, which comes only from the farthest Orient, is also found there, whereas Mainz is situated in the farthest Occident: for example, pepper, ginger, cloves, spikenard, costum (i.e. an Oriental aromatic spice) and galanga, which are imported from India, where they occur in quantity."
