Biography:

Denis Diderot ( 1713 – 1784 )

Denis Diderot was the most prominent of the French Encyclopedists. 

The Encyclopedie is most famous publications representing the thought and ideals of the Enlightenment. The Encyclopédie’s aim was “to change the way people think”. Diderot wanted to incorporate all of the world’s knowledge into the Encyclopedie and it was the first general encyclopedia to describe the mechanical arts.It attempted to collect and summarise human knowledge in a variety of fields and topics, ranging from philosophy to theology to science and the arts. The Encyclopédie was controversial for reorganising knowledge based on human reason instead of by nature or theology.
