/Class Outline
I lecture as a subject the French society at that time and the development of the Great Revolution. At first, from the change of the genre of the publication, I confirm the change of the mentality of the people from the afterlife to this world and explain the outbreak of the crosscurrent of the philosophy of the Enlightenment from such change of their mentality. And by watching the real life of the bourgeois, I consider the outbreak of the Revolutionit even though there was not the class struggle that was said to be between them and nobles conventionally. And then I will explain the process of the Revolution and let you understand how French social structure changed.
