The great eighteenth-century French thinker Denis Diderot (1713-1784) once compared himself to a weathervane, by which he meant that his mind was in constant motion. In an extraordinarily diverse career he produced novels, plays, art criticism, works of philosophy and poetics, and also reflected on music and opera. Perhaps most famously, he ensured the publication of the Encyclopédie, which has often been credited with hastening the onset of the French Revolution. Known as one of the three greatest philosophes of the Enlightenment, Diderot rejected the Christian ideas in which he had been raised. Instead, he became an atheist and a determinist. His radical questioning of received ideas and established religion led to a brief imprisonment, and for that reason, no doubt, some of his subsequent works were written for posterity. This collection of essays celebrates the life and work of this extraordinary figure as we approach the tercentenary of his birth.

Book Description:

This collection of essays by major scholars explores the writings of the great eighteenth-century French thinker Denis Diderot. Written to mark the tercentenary of his birth, this book celebrates a man who offers hope to humanity in an age of rapid change, whilst boldly rejecting traditional comforts of religious belief.

About the Author:

James Fowler teaches French at the University of Kent. He has written extensively on the eighteenth-century French novel and French philosophy. His publications include Voicing Desire: Family and Sexuality in Diderot's Narrative (2000) and The Libertine's Nemesis: The Prude in 'Clarissa' and the 'roman libertin' (2010).
