This volume contains five articles by prominent scholars of French literature and political philosophy that examine the relation between Montaignes Essays, one of the classic works of the French philosophical and literary traditions, and the writings attributed by Montaigne to his friend, the French humanist Etienne de La Boeties.Three contributors to the volume suggest that Montaigne was the real author of the revolutionary tract On Voluntary Servitude, along with the other works he attributed to La Boeties.

Two contributors describe the remarkable mathematical and/or mythological patterns found in both the Essays and the works ascribed to La Boeties. Several essays articulate the revolutionary political teaching found in the Essays as well as On Voluntary Servitude, challenging the conventional view of Montaigne as a political conservative.

And all the contributors challenge the received view that he was an artless or nonchalant writer. The volume also includes new translations of both On Voluntary Servitude and the 29 Sonnets of Etienne de La Boetie that Montaigne included in all editions of the Essays except the final one. An important work for students and scholars of political philosophy, Renaissance history, and French and comparative literature.
