A modern and beautifully redesigned version of the classic text. Voltaire's masterpiece, first published in 1759, tells the fictional tale of the unluckiest title character in the world, Candide, amidst lashings of sarcasm and insight. Written originally as a satire against the Leibnizian dogma that 'all is for the best', Candide has stood the test of time as a scathing, humorous and entertaining put down from one of history's wittiest philosophers. Written in a style which still resonates today, Candide is one of the finest examples of philosophy for a mainstream audience. Its cements Voltaire's place as one of the original masters of pop-philosophy.
