- (1795–1881), Scottish historian and political philosopher. He established his reputation as a historian with his History of the French Revolution (1837). Influenced by German romanticism, many of his works, including Sartor Resartus (1833-4), celebrate the force of the ‘strong, just man’ as against the degraded masses.
