Jean-Bénédict Humbert (1749-1819)

0.00 CHF tax incl.

Self-described as a zealous partisan of perpetual Peace, Jean-Bénédict Humber (1748-1819) was an important figure in Geneva's Revolution. He worked for the realisation of Rousseau's ideal of a return to nature and his insistence on a moral simplicity. In addition to Rousseau, Humbert admired such personalities as William Penn and Benjamin Franklin, and called for the imitation of the founding fathers of the United States. He remained a defender of equality to the end, advocating the just redivision of land, a rational method of rural life, a model of autosubsistance, and, as a corollary of his economic reform, constant moral reform.
