René Goblet (1828–1905) was a journalist and politician. In 1869, with Frédéric Petit and Jules Lardière, he founded the radical republican journal Le Progrès de la Somme. For a short time, between 1888 and 1889, he was minister for foreign affairs in Charles Floquet's government. This monument is dedicated to Goblet, is called La Conscience, and is sculpted by Jacques Perrin.
