Jean-François Revel (19 January 1924, Marseille – 30 April 2006, Kremlin-Bicêtre) was a French journalist, author, prolific philosopher and member of the Académie française from June 1998. A socialist in his youth, Revel later became a prominent European proponent of classical liberalism and free market economics.
Famous quotes containing the word revel:
“Crude men who feel themselves insulted tend to assess the degree of insult as high as possible, and talk about the offense in greatly exaggerated language, only so they can revel to their hearts content in the aroused feelings of hatred and revenge.”
—Friedrich Nietzsche (18441900)
