Jacques Maritain (1882-1973) was a French philosopher who converted to Catholicism in 1906; he was known as a prominent "neo-Thomist." He wrote many books, such as Natural Law: Reflections On Theory & Practice , An Introduction to Philosophy (A Sheed & Ward Classic) , Scholasticism and Politics , A Preface to Metaphysics , On the Use of Philosophy , Man and the State , etc.

In this 1929 book, he treats these three figures separately. He begins by observing, "Three men, each for very different reasons, dominate the modern world, and govern all the problems which torment it: a reformer of religion, a reformer of philosophy, and a reformer of morality---Luther, Descartes, and Rousseau. They are in very truth the begetters of... the modern conscience... I shall study Luther... to bring out certain features in the character of that enemy of philosophy which are of consequence to our philosophical battles... (Pg. 4)
