Charles-Louis de Secondat, Baron de La Brède og de Montesquieu var en fransk politisk filosof under opplysningen. Montesquieu mest betydningsfulle publikasjon ble kalt, On The Law of Laws, der han hevdet for å forhindre korrupsjon, bør regjeringen bli brutt i tre grener. Montesquieu ideer om en separasjon av makt er blitt blåkopien for mange regjeringer som eksisterer i verden i dag.
Born in Bordeaux in 1689, Baron de Montesquieu went on to become an author, lawyer, philosopher and social commentator during the Enlightenment. His father was from a wealthy aristocratic background and his mother died when he was very young. The Spirit of Laws is widely regarded as Montesquieu’s most significant work and it continues to inspire constitutions and theories of political governance today. Montesquieu’s theory of the separation of powers – the trias politica – in which the judicial, legislative and executive branches of government are separate, formed the basis of democracies such as the UK and USA.
Montesquieu attended a prestigious Catholic College and on the death of his father, he was sent to live with his uncle. He received a classical education, before going on to study law in Bordeaux. Montesquieu started his career as a Parliamentary Councilor in Bordeaux and later became the Deputy President of the Bordeaux Parliament. He resigned in 1725 to travel to Germany, Austria, England and Italy, returning to his native France in 1731. Back in France, Montesquieu wrote The Spirit of Laws, drawing inspiration from his travels, particularly the English parliamentary system. Other important works by Montesquieu include System of Ideas (1716) and Persian Letters (1721).
Montesquieu’s political philosophy was grounded in liberalism and his political ideas were radical and progressive for his time. Essentially, Montesquieu’s ideas were advocating for limitations on political power and posed a serious threat to the status quo of the political order and social structures. Montesquieu’s works mocked all social classes and his writing created a rich new system of political classification and lexicon.
Montesquieu died from a fever in 1755 in Paris, where he is buried at the Church of Saint-Sulpice.
Forverringen av hver regjering begynner med forfallet av prinsippene som den ble grunnlagt på.
Det er ikke større tyranni enn det som er begått under lovens skjold og i rettens navn.
Vi ønsker å være lykkeligere enn andre mennesker; Og dette er vanskelig, for vi tror at andre skal være lykkeligere enn de er.
