"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

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

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

98 editions published between 1792 and 2013 in 10 languages and held by 1,398 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

"Qu'est-ce que le sensible? Pour traiter cette question fondamentale, Diderot met en jeu un réseau complexe de références philosophiques. Il combat l'immatérialisme de Berkeley, tout en jouant sur les difficultés respectives de la Dioptrique cartésienne et des théories newtoniennes de la lumière, pour inventer un phénoménisme matérialiste. Premier ouvrage de maturité de Diderot, la Lettre révèle son génie philosophique. Il ne s'agit pas moins de restaurer le canon d'Epicure, à la lumière des savoirs " modernes ", de façon à fournir au lecteur un cours complet de philosophie. C'est pourquoi ce texte polyphonique, d'une richesse inépuisable, n'en progresse pas moins selon un ordre des images qui retrace un ordre des raisons : du personnage de l'aveugle du Puiseaux à celui de Saunderson, jusqu'au problème de Molyneux, il reconstruit obstinément les quatre critères de vérité du canon d'Epicure. Les théories de la sensation, des affects, des prénotions et des appréhensions intuitives y sont patiemment réinventées et ajustées aux questions fondamentales du XVIIIe siècle. La Lettre fournit donc l'occasion de prendre au sérieux un matérialisme conséquent et savant, et de connaître cet état de grâce philosophique, où le sensible nous fait participer à la " nature des choses "

The novel began life as an elaborate practical joke aimed at luring the Marquis de Croismare, a companion of Diderot's, back to Paris via a series of letters from a young nun. Later, Diderot revised the letters into a novel drawing attention both to the cruelty of the then-current practice of forcing young women into convents in order to get them out of the way, and the corruption that was rampant among the clergy and in religious institutions
