FRANÇOIS GUIZOT History of Civilisation in Europe François Pierre Guillaume Guizot, French historian and statesman, was born of Huguenot parents at Nimes on October 4, 1787. The liberal... More > opinions of his family did not save his father from the guillotine in 1794, and the mother fled to Geneva, where Guizot was educated.

More > societal influences challenge individual decision-making. But at what point does society's imposition adversely affect original thought? When does social conditioning become programming towards a minority’s ideology?

This, he argues, leads naturally to a civilised society, due to the unavoidable reconnection with the same co-operative sense our choices developed from. It is the power of people working to provide the basics for each other that led to the space above survival. To regain our civilised sense, might it be such conscious focus is once again required?< Less

More > father's death in 1840 left him independent, and the boy who was brought up in Toryism and Calvinism, became a philosophic radical and free-thinker. He travelled, he read, he acquired facility in nineteen languages and fluency in seven. Gradually he conceived the idea of a great work which should place history on an entirely new footing; it should concern itself not with the unimportant and the personal, but with the advance of civilisation, the intellectual progress of man.
