Abstract

The article reviews the historic context in which the French Revolution took place, including the political and economic order existing at the time of the Revolution, the rejection of that order by the revolutionaries, and the basic ideas upon which they built the new political and juridical order in France. The article highlights the ideology, the passions, and the political schemes designed by the revolutionaries as these developed in the aftermath of the French Revolution.
