Durante los primeros años veinte del siglo xvii suena con fuerza en Francia una poor e indignada voz de alarma: los angeles corte de París se halla infestada desde finales del siglo anterior de toda suerte de blasfemos, licenciosos y ateístas. Todos ellos quedan rápidamente agrupados bajo los angeles categoría de libertinos, término peyorativo con el que son designados quienes consagran sus energías intelectuales a un riguroso cuestionamiento del universo religioso, político y ético -intensamente cristiano- que determina el basic transcurrir del siglo. Con el libertinismo erudito, movimiento filosófico de pleno derecho cuyo estudio se ha revelado esencial para comprender los grandes envites del xvii, cobra carta de naturaleza una razón crítica que somete a su imperio todos los dominios del pensamiento, especialmente los angeles teología, l. a. ethical y l. a. filosofía recibidas, y que rechaza toda regla external y todo principio de autoridad, propugnando una libertad filosófica sin trabas de ningún tipo, especialmente de tipo religioso. Esta razón crítica se materializará en un tenaz esfuerzo por construir una ética autónoma, sin hipotecas teológicas o dogmáticas, y por analizar rigurosamente l. a. esfera de lo sagrado, cuestionando su papel fundamentador en los campos de l. a. filosofía, l. a. política, los angeles acción y de los modos de vida de los hombres. Semejante esfuerzo liberador será perpetuado por los filósofos y ensayistas del siglo de las Luces, constituyéndose así en los angeles verdadera semilla de l. a. que brotará el pensamiento ilustrado francés del siglo XVIII.

Tom did play hookey, and he had a very good time. He got back home barely in season to help Jim, the small colored boy, saw nextday’s wood and split the kindlings before supper––at least he was there in time to tell his adventures to Jim while Jim did three-fourths of the work. Tom’s younger brother (or rather, half-brother) Sid, was already through with his part of the work (picking up chips) for he was a quiet boy, and had no adventurous, troublesome ways. While Tom was eating his supper, and stealing sugar as opportunity oﬀered, Aunt Polly asked him questions that were full of guile, and very deep––for she wanted to trap him into damaging revealments.

He put down his pail, took the white alley, and bent over the toe with absorbing interest while the bandage was being unwound.
