By Bernard Groethuysen

"Il s'agit ici de creuser plus loin que les idées, de faire paraître, parler, cet être prudent, effacé, qu'était le bourgeois d'autrefois. On n'y parviendra pas sans ruse. [...] Le détour imaginé par M. Bernard Groethuysen est celui-ci : ne pouvant écouter les bourgeois, il a écouté les curés, et, à travers leurs propos, il a deviné maintes choses. [...] ce n'est pas Voltaire, ni Rousseau, dont Bernard Groethuysen est curieux, c'est du Français moyen, et pour se rapprocher de lui, il s'assied au prêche avec lui. Soupçonnait-on qu'après tant de travaux une resource considérable pour l. a. connaissance du XVIIIe siècle restait négligée ?"
