Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

An introduction by Thomas Crow describes the peculiar circumstances under which these texts were written, and concise notes make it possible for non-specialist readers to keep their bearings in the vividly evoked world of late eighteenth-century Paris.

About the Author

Initialement destine a la pretrise, Denis Diderot fait ses etudes chez les jesuites. Il redige ses "Pensees philosophiques" en 1746, ou il demontre deja son caractere athee. Ami de Rousseau et d'Alembert, il accepte de se charger avec ce dernier de l'elaboration de "L' Encyclopedie" en 1747. Ce travail occupera vingt ans de sa vie, mais ne l'empechera pas d'ecrire ses propres reflexions. La publication en 1749 de sa "Lettre aux aveugles", lui vaudra d'etre condamne par l'Eglise et emprisonne a Vincennes durant trois mois. Tour a tour critique d'art, romancier, auteur de theatre, defenseur de la raison critique, Diderot s'affirme comme le chef de file des Lumieres francaises.

Hugh Sidey covered JFK as a reporter for Time magazine.

Since 1964, she has run her own business, Letitia Baldridge Enterprises.
