Resumen

At first glance a work focused on Posthumous works of Montesquieu might seem to be an old fashioned pursuit. Philosophy has come widely under attack from various viewpoints, throughout the world. Moreover, this dominant perspective seems to become always more natural for one part of the population in some countries. For instance, we think about the statements of the president of Brazil Jair Bolsonaro and his policy of cuts in the funding for universities; we have in mind the articles of the financial journalist Stefano Feltri whereby Philosophy would be useless2 or certain declarations of the Italian Minister of Interior Matteo Salvini3 . In 2015, the Minister Hakuban Shimomura encouraged an anti-humanistic policy in Japan4 . Fortunately, there are also exceptions like the president of Ireland Michael D. Higgins who recently drew attention to the importance of Philosophy
