Voltaire, pseudonym of François-Marie Arouet (Nov 21, 1694 - May 30, 1778), was an 18th-century French Enlightenment philosopher, renowned for his wit and criticism of religious fanaticism and intolerance.

His thinking was marked by skepticism, humanism, and support for freedom of expression and the separation of Church and State. Author of various works, including the famous "Candide", Voltaire profoundly influenced Western thought, advocating for justice, civil liberty, and societal reform.
