The article examines the Montesquieu's relation with the republican idea taking into account the concept of commercial republic. If virtue is the starting point of the Republic, then its character is sometimes problematic. However, everything suggests that the commercial republic seeks to prepare the reader to take in the commercial possibility incarnated in the English Model.
