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

423 editions published between 1761 and 2016 in 15 languages and held by 3,518 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the key figures of the French Enlightenment, Denis Diderot was a critic of conventional morality, society, and religion. Among his most well-known works, these two dialogues are examples of his radical scientific and philosophical beliefs. In Rameau's Nephew, the eccentric and foolish nephew of the great composer Jean-Philippe Rameau meets Diderot by chance, and the two embark on a hilarious consideration of society, music, literature, politics, morality and philosophy. Its companion-piece, D'Alembert's Dream, outlines a material, atheistic view of the universe, expressed through the fevered dreams of Diderot's friend D'Alembert

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

332 editions published between 1792 and 2016 in 12 languages and held by 2,534 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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
The paradox of acting by Denis Diderot( Book )

179 editions published between 1864 and 2016 in 10 languages and held by 1,440 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

Denis Diderot's The encyclopedia : selections by Denis Diderot( Book )

29 editions published between 1952 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 610 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

Extrait : ""Je me doutais bien, madame, que l'aveugle-né, à qui M. de Réaumur vient de faire abattre la cataracte, ne nous apprendrait pas ce que vous vouliez savoir ; mais je n'avais garde de deviner que ce ne serait ni sa faute, ni la vôtre. J'ai sollicité son bienfaiteur par moi-même, par ses meilleurs amis, par les compliments que je lui ai faits ; nous n'en avons rien obtenu, et le premier appareil se lèvera sans vous.""
