    Awful fuckin translationThere s liberty in translation where idioms or perhaps clarity might be better expressed in another matter between languages but Richter takes too many liberties to the point that you wonder whether he was capable of working with the French or not.I dont normally rate philosophical works on the pretense that i dont really have a valid standard for comparing philosophies but this edit

    Read selections from L esprit des lois and Lettres persanes for class Really enjoyed the latter, while the former was oftentimes tedious and obscure I enjoyed Montesquieu s efforts to approach the state of nature from aanthropological perspective, however much of his other reasoning either a did not impress me or b escaped me Will I return to this book on my own time
