[en] What is Dunbar's position towards Dubos', Montesquieu's and Ferguson's climatology and environmental influence on race? To which extent did he suscribe to Helvetius's and Hume's skeptical considerations about this determination? We link this opposition to the one, established by Z. Sternhell, between a mere "Enlightement" associating Locke and Kant and a pre-romantic anti-Enlightenment illustrated by Burke or Herder. We consider the reception of Dunbar's Essays in the French, British and German scientific press.
