Prime minister of Piedmont. Transformed Italy into a nation-state under a constitutional monarchy. Had began as a conservative, but became moderately liberal. Inspired by the ideals of the Enlightenment and classical economics (laissez-faire). Was a strong monarchist who rejected republicanism.

Therefore, he promoted free trade, railway construction, expansion of credit, and agricultural improvement. Believed only French intervention could defeat Austria and thus, unite Italy.

Wrote Principles of Political Economy (1817); also known for his concept, the "iron law of wages", in which a rise of population means rise of amount of workers, which cause wages to fall below the subsistence level, resulting in misery and starvation. Wages raised, parents have more kids, who would then enter the working field, thus lowering wages; lowered wages would lead to less kids, thus less workers in the working field, resulting in higher wages. Continuing, never-ending cycle. New regime under Louis Phillippe. Politically, was more liberal than the restoration government. Under his reign, revolutionary flag is used, new constitution is regarded as a right for all citizens, Catholicism becomes a religion of a majority, not an official relgion, the government becomes anticlerical, censorship is abolished, and franchise is made wider.

(1792-7) consisted of the nations of Austria, Prussia, Great Britain, Spain, the Netherlands, Sardinia. Drove the French from the Austrian Netherlands, and peasants in Western France revolted against being drafted into the army.

A French noble of the robe, lawyer, and philosophe; a member of parlement and the Bordeaux Academy of Science. Saw the need for reform. In his satires, such as in "The Persian Letters", he criticized European life. Just as with Voltaire, he visited England and was impressed with its society and freedom. His most influential work was "Spirit of Laws". He favored a monarchical government for France that was limited by lesser institutions, such as the aristocracy, etc. Was a political conservative who believed that the oppressive absolutism of France accounted for the degradation of French life. In this, he favored a revival of the aristocracy. Was the first to suggest a division of powers being beneficial to the efficiency of government, in which he somewhat wrongly used Britain as an example. Believed that women were not naturally inferior to men and should have a wider role in society. He showed he was aware of the repression women faced in society. Regardless, he still retained the traditional view of male dominance in the home. Supported women's right of divorce, but favored chastity. Existed after the mid-18th century. Erupted from the literate public and the growing influence of secular printed materials, creating an increasingly influential force that was this.

Readers of philosophe writers discuss their ideas, then circulate them widely. Supported the expansion of trade, the improvement of agriculture and transport, and the invention of new machinery for manufacturing. Chief bond was the desire to reform religion, political thought, society, government, and the economy for the sake of human liberty.
