Eighteenth Century

Eighteenth Century, “a sceptical century and a godless,” according to Carlyle's deliberate estimate, “opulent in accumulated falsities, as never century before was; which had no longer the consciousness of being false, so false has it grown; so steeped in falsity, and impregnated with it to the very bone, that, in fact, the measure of the thing was full, and a French Revolution had to end it”; which it did only symbolically, however, as he afterwards admitted, and but admonitorily of a doomsday still to come. See “Frederick the Great,” Bk. i. chap, ii., and “Heroes.”
