Montaigne praises movement: he invites us to think always elsewhere. Like his writing, which travels, he invites us to move. And he himself re-reads the great texts of antiquity, using quotations from Lucretius and Virgil to advance tolerance and freedom.
If he is also the famous French Goethe, he is especially the one who helped to found our secular and republican thought, influencing the Enlightenment until today. His trip to Italy is an invitation to discover, to appreciate, to take advice from the Other.
He develops free thought, far from any system, an enemy of all fanaticisms. It defines an identity of the nation beyond beliefs and devotions.
