"Quoi, si j'étais autre?" Potentiel, virtuel, contrefactuel : modalités de la confession dans le livre III des Essais

Abstract : The expression of virtuality in the Essays, beginning with the program announced in the prefatory « To the Reader », leads to identify the different shades in Montaigne's assessment of his past, his own « essence », and the actions of others. The modalities of potential and counterfacual allow him to join the personal confession, to the practice of a pleasant imagination, and to the accusation of actual misdeeds such as the Spanish colonisation, thus presenting, courteously and daringly at the same time, reproach and advice.
