Partisan de l'union des républicains, il se détache de ses amis Girondins sans pour autant rallier les Montagnards. Décrété d'accusation en juillet 1793, il se cache à Paris jusqu'en mars 1794. Il écrit alors l'Esquisse d'un tableau des progrès de l'Esprit humain, son oeuvre maîtresse. Pour ne pas compromettre los angeles sûreté de celle qui l'héberge, il quitte son safe haven. Arrêté, il est trouvé mort dans sa cellule le 29 mars 1794.

Telle fut l. a. vie de cet intellectuel engagé qui connut l'échec politique mais dont l. a. pensée, selon le mot de Jean Jaurès, fait partie du patrimoine de l. a. République.
