Francois-Vincent Toussaint Bibliography

Treatise on Morals 1748
Toussaint was a friend of Diderot. The Treatise, which defended a non-religious system of ethics, was greatly admired although it generated much scandal, was publicly burned, and caused Toussaint to flee the country.
“To love men and to treat them with goodness, considering them only in their simple condition of men, and not for the love of God, that is true humanity.”
