L' an Deux Mille Quatre Cent Quarante

Reve s'il en fut jamais. AVANT-PROPOS Desirer que tout soit bien est le v u du philosophe. J'entends par ce mot, dont on a sans doute abuse, l'etre vertueux & sensible qui veut le bonheur general, parce qu'il a des idees precises d'ordre et d'harmonie. Le mal fatigue les regards du Sage, il s'en plaint; on soupconne qu'il a de l'humeur; on a tort. Le Sage sait que le mal abonde sur la terre; mais en meme tems il a toujours presente a l'esprit cette perfection si belle & si touchante, qui peut & qui doit meme etre l'ouvrage de l'homme raisonnable. En effet, pourquoi nous seroit-il defendu d'esperer qu'apres avoir decrit ce cercle extravagant de sottises autour duquel l'egarent ses passions, l'homme ennuye reviendra a la lumiere pure de l'entendement? Pourquoi le genre humain ne seroit-il pas semblable a l'individu? Emporte, violent, etourdi dans son jeune age; sage, doux, modere dans sa vieillesse 1]. L'homme qui pense ainsi, s'impose a lui-meme le devoir d'etre juste. Mais savons-nous ce que c'est que perfection? Peut-elle etre le partage d'un etre foible et borne? Ce grand secret n'est-il pas cache sous celui de la vie? & ne faudra-t-il pas depouiller notre vetement mortel pour percer cette sublime enigme? En attendant tachons de rendre les choses passables, ou, si c'est encore trop, revons du moins qu'elles le sont. Pour moi, concentre avec Platon, je reve comme lui. O mes chers concitoyens Vous que j'ai vu gemir si frequemment sur cette foule d'abus dont on est las de se plaindre, quand verrons-nous nos grands projets, quand verrons-nous nos songes se realiser Dormir, voila donc notre felicite. Au sujet de l'auteur Louis-Sebastien Mercier, ne le 6 juin 1740 a Paris ou il est mort le 25 avril 1814, est un ecrivain, dramaturge, journaliste et publiciste francais. Auteur prolifique, l'un des hommes dont la vie litteraire a ete la plus active, Louis-Sebastien Mercier, qui s'appelait lui-meme le plus grand livrier de France, est surtout connu pour son Tableau de Paris et l'An 2440, publies avant la Revolution. Il est egalement l'auteur de cinquante pieces de theatre et de nombreux essais critiques, et le fondateur des Annales patriotiques et litteraires. Biographie Sa famille Issu d'une famille de la petite bourgeoisie, Mercier naquit le 6 juin 1740 a Paris, quai de l'Ecole, entre le Pont Neuf et le Louvre, ou son pere, Jean-Louis Mercier, tenait boutique de marchand fourbisseur, et baptise deux jours plus tard en l'eglise Saint-Germain l'Auxerrois. Originaire de Metz et veuf d'une premiere femme, Claude Galloy, Jean-Louis Mercier signa le 24 aout 1739 un contrat de mariage avec Elisabeth Andree Le Pas, fille de feu Martin Le Pas, maitre macon. Louis-Sebastien naquit l'annee suivante. Un cadet, Charles Andre, qui devait plus tard tenir l'hotel des Trois-Villes, rue de Tournon, vit le jour en 1741. Un troisieme enfant, Jean-Baptiste, mourut au berceau. Sa mere mourut a son tour le 30 juillet 1743, et son pere se remaria une troisieme fois avec Charlotte Spol, qui lui donna une fille, Anne Charlotte."
