József Eötvös and the age of Hungarian reform

Cabak Rédei, Anna LU (2004) In Modernisation and tradition. European local and manorial societies 1500-1900.
Abstract
The question at stake is to what extent could the Hungarian intelligentsia, here foremost represented by the author and political thinker József Eötvös, in the beginning of the 19th century, take in the ideas of the Enlightment and its notion of equality. By studying Eötvös' highly political novel "Village Notary" some conclusions are made regarding how Rousseau's political philosophy was understood in the Hungarian cultural and social context.
