Reflections on the Revolution in France The proceedings in certain societies in London relative to that event: in a letter intended to have been sent to a Gentleman in Paris. Edmund Burke Reflections on the Revolution in France is a 1790 book by Edmund Burke and one of the best-known intellectual attacks against the French Revolution. The tract has been used as a defining piece of modern conservatism as well as an important contribution to international theory. Above all else, it has been one of the defining efforts of Edmund Burke's transformation of "traditionalism into a self-conscious and fully conceived political philosophy of conservatism".The pamphlet has not been easy to classify. Academics have had trouble identifying whether Burke, or his tract, can best be understood as "a realist or an idealist, Rationalist or a Revolutionist". The current academic consensus is that the tract is a "classic text in political theory". Thanks to its thoroughness, rhetorical skill, and literary power, it has become one of the most widely known of Burke's writings.In the twentieth century, it greatly influenced conservative and classical liberal intellectuals, who recast Burke's Whig arguments as a critique of Communism and Socialist revolutionary programmes.
