Description

Diderot was a French philosopher, editor of the Dictionnaire Enclopedique, and his complete works amounted to 15 volumes.

He gave, in distinguishing the concepts of "bind" and "attach" the following example. "one is bound to one's wife, attached to one's mistress."

When the church sent an emissary to Diderot in his dying days to appeal to him to return to the faith he said "I understand you, Monsieur le Cure. You refused to bury Voltaire because he did not believe in the divinity of the Son. Well, when I am dead, they can bury me wherever they like, but I declare that I believe neither in the Father nor in the Holy Ghost, not in any of the Family"

Diderot's bones, like Voltaire's, were mysteriously stolen from his burial site.

Diderot was casual about sex. He defined masturbation as simply giving nature a helping hand; and love, he said, was rubbing together of two mucous membranes with a subsequent loss of bodily fluids.

When asked by a friend if he (the friend) should get married, Diderot advised that he should drown himself first.

Illustrated with approximately 50 Portraits from the 18th & !9th Century.
