->''"If God did not exist, it would be necessary to invent him."''

François-Marie Arouet (Voltaire) ([[CoveredUp the original one]]). French dude, 1694-1778. [[DeadpanSnarker Satirical]] [[ThePhilosopher philosopher]]. He is best known for his witty defense of civil liberties, freedom of religion, and free trade. His views earned him a stay in the Bastille, where he gained his penname. He would go on to inspire multiple philosophers and satirical authors, especially amongst those who supported his views. His writings also inspired both the [[TheFrenchRevolution French]] and [[TheAmericanRevolution American]] revolutions. He was also a scientist who published multiple essays. Prolific, as he published more than 20,000 letters and 2,000 books and pamphlets. The name Voltaire comes from ''Arouet le jeune'' ("Arouet The Young"), converted to Latin script where U=V and J=I; AROVET L I -> VOLTAIRE. He is eminently quotable, and [[BeamMeUpScotty mis-quotable]].

!Stuff by Voltaire:
* ''Letters on the English'', 1733, revised 1778
* ''{{Zadig}}'', 1747
* ''Micromégas'', 1752
* ''{{Candide}}'', 1759,
* ''Ce qui plaît aux dames'', 1764
* ''Philosophical Dictionary'', 1764
* ''The Ingenue'', 1767
----
!!This author's works provide examples of:

* AnAesop: In every single philosophical tale.
* AlienInvasion: ''Micromégas'' may be the UrExample.
* BadassBookworm: Candide and many other characters
* CrapsackWorld: In ''Candide'', everywhere except Eldorado. In ''L'Ingénu'', everywhere except in the main character's tribe.
* DeusExHomine: Provides the page quote.
* EarnYourHappyEnding: Candide
* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: In ''Candide'', "the sage Doctor Pangloss giv[es] a lecture in experimental philosophy to her mother's chambermaid". "[S]he perfectly well understood the force of the doctor's reasoning upon causes and effects".
* RomanticismVersusEnlightenment: Enlightenment, despite the cynicism.
* SkilledButNaive: Candide and l'Ingénu both have names which means "naive". Indeed, they are skilled in many ways, especially books, but very ignorant towards the reality of their world.
* SlidingScaleOfIdealismVsCynicism: Rather cynicism, but with some idealist hints.
