Rameau's nephew; and other works by Denis Diderot( Book )

"In a famous Parisian chess café, a down-and-out, HIM, accosts a former acquaintance, ME, who has made good, more or less. They talk about chess, about genius, about good and evil, about music, they gossip about the society in which they move, one of extreme inequality, of corruption, of envy, and about the circle of hangers-on in which the down-and-out abides. The down-and-out from time to time is possessed with movements almost like spasms, in which he imitates, he gestures, he rants. And towards half past five, when the warning bell of the Opera sounds, they part, going their separate ways. Probably completed in 1772-73, Denis Diderot's Rameau's Nephew fascinated Goethe, Hegel, Engels and Freud in turn, achieving a literary-philosophical status that no other work by Diderot shares. This interactive, multi-media, colour edition offers a brand new translation of Diderot's famous dialogue, and it also gives the reader much more. Portraits and biographies of the numerous individuals mentioned in the text, from minor actresses to senior government officials, enable the reader to see the people Diderot describes, and provide a window onto the complex social and political context that forms the backdrop to the dialogue. Links to musical pieces specially selected by Pascal Duc and performed by students of the Conservatoire national supérieur de musique, Paris, illuminate the wider musical context of the work, enlarging it far beyond its now widely understood relation to opéra comique."--Publisher's website

Jacques the fatalist and his master by Denis Diderot( Book )

"Jacques the Fatalist is Diderot's answer to the problem of existence. If human beings are determined by their genes and their environment, how can they claim to be free to want or do anything? Where are Jacques and his Master going? Are they simply occupying space, living mechanically until they die, believing erroneously that they are in charge of their Destiny? Diderot intervenes to cheat our expectations of what fiction should be and do, and behaves like a provocative, ironic, and unfailingly entertaining master of revels which finally show why Fate is not to be equated with doom." "In the introduction to this new translation, David Coward explains the philosophical basis of Diderot's fascination with Fate and shows why Jacques the Fatalist pioneers techniques of action which, two centuries on, novelists still regard as experimental."--Jacket

A Diderot pictorial encyclopedia of trades and industry; manufacturing and the technical arts in plates, selected from L'Encyclopédie; ou, Dictionnaire raisonne des sciences, des arts et des métiers, of Denis Diderot by John Lough( Book )

146 editions published between 1751 and 2013 in 8 languages and held by 1,850 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Diderot's great 'Encyclopédie' was one of the Enlightenment's crowning achievements, a monumental illustrated record of European arts and sciences just prior to the Industrial Revolution. Among its glories are its copperplate engravings, supreme examples of both the illustrator's and the engraver's art. This beautiful book brings together a rich selection of plates from the 'Encyclopédie', all of them devoted to architecture and its related arts, crafts and trades. Here are elegant renderings of the magnificent colonnade of the Louvre; projected elevations and floor plans for the church and abbey of the Panthemont in Paris, the grand Hôtel de Ville in Rouen and the San Carlo Opera House in Naples; drawings and plans for windmills and bridges; renderings of palatial interiors, luxuriously carved furnishings, statuary and exterior architectural detailing; elevations and floor plans for many well-known European theaters and much more. Here, too, are superbly executed scenes of 18th-century craftsmen at work in the building trades - stonecutters, carpenters, masons and more - and the enormous range of tools and materials involved in their work. These rare views of the grand architectural visions of the Baroque and Rococo eras and the technology that brought them to life will be invaluable to all students and enthusiasts of the architectural and decorative arts, history, sociology and industrial technology. Graphic artists and designers in search of authentic, copyright-free images of the art and life of the 18th century will find this book an essential source of illustrations as well"--Back cover

Le Paradoxe sur le comédien est un dialogue en prose imaginé par Denis Diderot (1713-1784). Il est publié pour la première fois en 1830, à Paris, sept ans après sa conception. Sous la forme d'un dialogue, dissymétrique, entre deux interlocuteurs censés défendre une thèse opposée, Diderot (1713-1784) développe une véritable réflexion sur l'art du comédien et, plus largement, sur la création artistique. Ainsi pose-t-il la supériorité de l'intelligence et du travail conscient sur la sensibilité, fût-elle porteuse d'une grande puissance pathétique

Rameau's nephew ; and, First satire by Denis Diderot( Book )

8 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 143 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Diderot's dialogue begins with a chance encounter in a Paris cafe between two acquaintances. Their talk ranges broadly across art, music, education, and the contemporary scene, as the nephew of composer Rameau, amoral and bohemian, alternately shocks and amuses the moral, bourgeois figure of his interlocutor. The dialogue exposes the corruption of society in Diderot's characteristic philosophical exploration." "The debates of the French Enlightenment speak to us in this new translation, which also includes the First Satire, a related work that provides the context for Rameau's Nephew, Diderot's 'second satire'."--Jacket
