Refugie huguenot, Pierre Coste (1668-1747) s'est installe aupres de John Locke pour traduire l'Essai philosophique concernant l'entendement humain: c'est donc grace a lui qu'a l'epoque de la Revolution, presque tous les defenseurs de la liberte invoquaient les idees du philosophe anglais. Dans ce livre, Coste, pour la plupart meconnu depuis deux siecles, voit enfin le jour comme homme bien doue et ecrivain prolifique. Meme sans l'apogee lockien, sa contribution au monde des lettres est considerable. Lie avec Shaftesbury et Newton en Angleterre, il a annote egalement de nombreuses editions d'auteurs francais tels que La Fontaine, La Bruyere, Montaigne et Racine et s'est mele a plusieurs debats journalistiques.
