PALACIOS CRUZ, Víctor H.. Michel de Montaigne: una crítica de la modernidad desde la reconciliación con la finitud. Valenciana [online]. 2013, vol.6, n.11, pp.7-31. ISSN 2007-2538.

Montaigne fosters a sort of awareness of the individual, which is halfway in between the Lutheran denial of the self and the Carthesian absolutization of reason. We are just a tiny dot in time and space; a fact that prevents us from deifying our personal judgment and, in so doing, explains the plurality of the world. And this smallness encourages us both to care of our own intimacy, and to worry about the others.

Keywords : knowledge; scepticism; rationalism; modern age; tolerance.
