Mirabaud, Jean Baptiste

a French philosopher of some celebrity, was born in Paris in 1675, and died in 1760. He was it home in the literature of Italy and of Spain, and made many valuable translations; among others, he rendered Tasso's Jerusalem Delivered and the Orlando Furioso. He also wrote several philosophical treatises, which in 1726 secured him admission to the French Academy. His most important works are, Le Monde, son origine, son antiquite; and Sentimzens des Philosophes sur la nature de l'ame. Mirabaud was for a long time regarded as the author of the Systeme de la Nature, now known to have been written by baron D'Holbach. See D'Alembert, Histoire des Membres de l'Academie Francaise; Hoefer, Nouv. Biog. Generale, s.v.; Ueberweg, Hist. of Philosophy, volume 2.
