Jurist, law professor, novelist, journalist, historian, essayist and travelogue author, René Bazin was a precursor in his time.
He senses the limits and the negative side of the nascent industrial civilization.
It highlights the beauty of nature and promotes respect for the environment.
Close to the social Catholics of the time, he deals in his work with social issues by encouraging people to put into practice humane working conditions. Work in the service of man and not the other way around.
Contrary to the current exalting having, it demonstrates the importance of being.
René Bazin wants a social order that is just, balanced, neither collectivist nor liberal.
