Published in Niort in 1714 by Doctor Abraham Gaultier, the Réponse en forme de dissertation à un théologien, (from which two clandestine manuscripts were drawn and then a Parité de la vie et de la mort printed) shows, in the form of an explication of the Sceptics’ doctrine, a sort of materialism inspired by the doctrines of vitalism. In spite of claimed forms of allegiance to religious orthodoxy, the Réponse puts men and animals on the same level of materiality and mortality.

Keywords: Death, life, Gaultier (Abraham), scepticism, libertinism, clandestine philosophical literature, medicine, vitalism, materialism, atheism.

  • Epicureans and Atheists in France, 1650–1729 pp.139 (ISBN:9781316450987)
