Montaigne is usually inscribed in the crisis of exemplarity that characterizes the end of the Middle Ages. Through the different editions of the Essais, this article follows how he constructs his own notion of virtue and connects it to a relentless reinterpretation of the figure of Socrates. The results of this investigation show that this example is not normative because it involves a rigid application of an ideal, but because it is a model of a search for virtue that is capable of constructing a mutably ordered self.
Keywords: Montaigne, exemplarism, virtue, Socrates.
