The Encyclop�die of Diderot and d'Alembert: Selected Articles

Availability: Ready to download

The publication of the Encyclopedie in the middle of the eighteenth century is generally recognised as a decisive factor in the conflict ideas which led to the French Revolution of 1789. Yet, despite its importance in the history of eighteenth-century French thought, no outstanding work of the period is less read today, simple because of its bulk and inaccessibility. Those The publication of the Encyclopedie in the middle of the eighteenth century is generally recognised as a decisive factor in the conflict ideas which led to the French Revolution of 1789. Yet, despite its importance in the history of eighteenth-century French thought, no outstanding work of the period is less read today, simple because of its bulk and inaccessibility. Those parts reproduced in this edition cover religion, philosophy, science and political and social ideas and include articles which reflect the humanitarian outlook of the contributors and their attitude to the abuses of the ancien regime. The selection is of value not only to students of French literature and thought, but also to all those interested in the history and political ideas of France on the eve of the Revolution; in these pages Diderot, D'Alembert and D'Holbach are allowed to speak for themselves, instead of having their ideas summarised (and sometimes misinterpreted) by others.

    "I can't believe your getting this excited about reading the encyclopedia" - said my friend, And it was true :( Diderot is fantastic, controversial, optimistic, sarcastic, egalitarian and revolutionary. This is the "spirit of the enlightenment" "I can't believe your getting this excited about reading the encyclopedia" - said my friend, And it was true :( Diderot is fantastic, controversial, optimistic, sarcastic, egalitarian and revolutionary.
