Voltaire (1694-1778). Historical artwork of the French author and poet Voltaire. Voltaire, born Francois Marie Arouet, wrote more than 20,000 letters and more than 2000 books and pamphlets. Among his scientific works was Elemens de la Philosophie de Neuton (1738), a guide to the theories of Isaac Newton. Voltaire also wrote on history, philosophy, religion and politics. He was a fierce critic of social and political injustices, and this led to several periods of exile or imprisonment. Published in 'Lives of men of letters and science' by Henry Brougham, in 1846.
