FRENCH REVOLUTION 230 YEARS AFTER – A CRITICAL VIEW
There are few historical events that aspired to such a radical and so comprehensive change of reality as it was the case with the French Revolution. Simultaneously, despite its radicalism, there are only a few events in world history around which, at least on the continent, so firm consensus has been created. Not only has the Revolution itself been positively evaluated but also all of its (conceptual) consequences have been accepted without critical assessment.
