Jules Romain Barni (1818–1878)

Barni, Jules Romain (bär-nē). A French scholar and philosophical writer and critic; born in Lille, June 1, 1818; died in Mers, dept. Somme, July 4, 1878. His efforts to propagate the Kantian philosophy through the medium of ‘Observations on the Sense of the Sublime and Beautiful’ (1836), ‘Foundations of Ethical Metaphysic’ (1848), and ‘Kantian Philosophy’ (1850) earned him distinction; as did also, in another but contiguous field, a ‘History of Moral and Political Ideas in France in the Eighteenth Century’ (1866).
