Political philosopher, now mainly remembered for his semi-autobiographical, and rather scandalous, novella , 'Adolphe'. "Whenever there is no absolute necessity, whenever legislation may fail to intervene without society being overthrown, whenever, finally it is a question merely of some hypothetical improvement, the law must abstain, leave things alone, and keep quiet."
