Jean de la Bruyere Quotes

Jean de la Bruyere (1645 – 1696)

Jean de la Bruyere (1645 – 1696) was a French philosopher and moralist born in Paris, who was noted for his satire. His book The Caracteres, a translation of Theophrastus, and a few letters mostly addressed to the prince de Conde complete the list of his literary work. La Bruyere’s privileged position within the royal court of France provided him with a unique vantage point from which he could witness the hypocrisy and corruption of the court of Louis XIV.
