Holbach (1723-1798) was one of the leading representatives of the French Enlightenment. His house was seen as the headquarters of the encyclopedists, and he contributed more than 400 articles to the ›Encyclopédie‹. Based on the merger of the atheism of the Enlightenment with La Mettrie’s materialism, Condillac’s sensualism and Helvétius’ egocentric moral theory, Holbach created an influential and cohesive system for the radical school of thought in the French Enlightenment.
