On Religion

On Religion: Considered in Its Source, Its Forms, and Its Developments By Benjamin Constant
Translated by Peter Paul Seaton Jr.
Introduction by Pierre Manent

Political Thought

This is the first full-length English translation of Benjamin Constant’s massive study of humanity’s religious forms and development, published in five volumes between 1824 and 1831. Constant (1767–1830) regarded On Religion, worked on over the course of many years, as perhaps his most important philosophical work. He called it “the only interest, the only consolation of my life,” and “the book that I was destined by nature to write.”
