Thomas Paine: His Revolutionary and Humanist Values proposes to situate Paine’s works within the context of the eighteenth-century Enlightenment philosophical awareness and modern critical and discourse-based theories.
Emphasis is put on recovering the conditions of language communication operative in his texts, paying attention to his ‘performativity’ of the existing knowledge and how he then moves on to questioning the established order on the basis of evidence and his logical reasoning.
The book argues that Paine’s thought is tightly linked to the humanist moral philosophy that measures a human being’s merit by his contribution to the well being of Man.
It is also an attempt to go beyond the idea of “the advocate of violence”, in which Paine has been confined by his reviewers.
