Of all the Enlightenment questions reopened in Britain by the French Revolution, none was more hotly debated and none became more politically charged than universal benevolence -the ideathat benevolence and sympathy can be extended to all humanity. Inthe British controversy overthe Revolution, issues that had been argued by eighteenth-century moral philosophers surfaced not only with a new urgency but also with a fresh sense of possible political and social implications; taking a stance on universal benevolence quickly came to imply an attitude towards the Revolution and apolitical position.
