Summary "In this collection of essays, Montaigne has made himself the subject of his book. He has done it with so much sincerity, that there is all the reason in the world, to believe that he engage in so difficult an understanding, not so much out of vanity, as to communicate instruction. It is, however, certain, that the picture he has here drawn of himself, is in the nature of a faithful mirror, wherein all men may discover some of their own features, if they will but take the trouble to view themselves in it attentively, and with an honest design to see what they are in reality. And to good purpose it will be; for in this world, a man must be vary careful to inspect himself, or by living at random, be incessantly exposed to the derision of other men, and be a prey to his own foibles, always in uneasiness and confusion, and always repining at evils, of which he will neither know the cause, nor the proper remedy"--Preface.
