Abstract:Few events in modern history have aroused as much passion and idealism as the French Revolution. Angry crowds marching through the streets of Paris to the tune of the "Marseillaise", orators passionately expounding on liberty, peasants plundering the noble's mansion, and the guillotine sending thousands of French men and women to their deaths are all visions conjured up by the Revolution. These are indeed very real elements of this epic historical event. But there is another element, much more staid. Beneath all the passion, excitement and often times, hysteria, were sane, rational ideas that had been fermenting in the minds of men throughout the 18th century in the intellectual phenomenon known as the Enlightenment. Libertè, Egalitè, and Fraternitè were the ideals that served as planks in the revolutionary platform. These ideals gave the Revolution its voice, its impetus, its raison d'être.
