Birth and Death
Denis Diderot, son of Didier and Angleique Diderot, was born in Langres, Campagne, France on October 5, 1713. He died on July 31, 1784 in Paris, France due to emphysema. He is buried at Eglise Saint-Roch, Paris, France.
One cause that may have contributed to his ways of thought was the death of his sister. After her death he decided to leave the church to study law.
He also wanted to people to be riddled with knowledge so that they could think on their own.
The church didn't take it well. They knew that if the Encylcopedia was to be published it would make people question the Church, so in order to keep this from happening they tried to ban the first two volumes. It failed due to the popularity it brought.
How are his ideas still impact us today?
Other information!!
Diderot had a wife and two mistresses. Wife: Anne Toinette Champion [Catholic]. His first mistress was Madame Puisieux, she was a writer. Sophie Voland was his third mistress.
Some of his other works include: "Essai sur la merite et la virtu" (1745) and "Pensees Philosophique" (1746).
As a result of writing "Lettres sur les aveugles", he was imprisoned for three months at Vincennes.
One of his friends happened to be Jean-Jacques Rousseau.
The Enclycopedia
Diderot still empacts us with the Encyclopedia. We can use this to our use, due to its basic overview of many subjects. The information in the Encyclopedia are in alphabetical order; you can use an actual encyclopedia at home or at a library, and there is also an online encyclopedia that you can also use.
1747: Diderot and Jean le Rond d'Alembert were both given the opportunity to co-edit the Chamber's Cyclopedia. They chose not to do it, but instead to start their own encylcopedia. It was finally published in the 1750s; by 1784 it was a big hit in Europe and France that more that 25,000 copies had been dealt.
