Francois Rabelais was primarily a scientist, physician and naturalist. He never mocked science and firmly believed in it. This was the unchanging essence of his views. But there were also such hours in his life when he wanted to have fun, and his furious gaiety was poured out by such streams, where ingenious ideas and elegant wit were mixed with coarse platitudes, vulgar jokes and even with obscenity. He does not have a subtle taste, but there is as much variety in the content of his works as in the works of nature. It cannot be said that he did not have art, but it does not obey any rules. The essay about him and his work will be very interesting.
