N. XXXV, 2023

Italian Version | French Version

Among the eighteenth-century thinkers, Denis Diderot is certainly one of the most difficult to classify. He authored novels, theatre plays, science and as well as philosophy essays. It is difficult to separate his properly “philosophical” works from the rest of his production. Nor, moreover, would it make sense to do so, because Diderot’s philosophy emerges precisely from the intertwining of all these different spheres of interest and work.

The thirty-fifith issue of Lo Sguardo intends to investigate the figure of Diderot in all its different aspects: philosopher, novelist, playwright, scientist, art critic, cultural promoter (with the great project of the Encyclopédie). The aim of the issue is to understand how these features of his work interact with each other and how they contribute to the philosophy that emerges. And finally, to establish the meaning that this complex philosophical heritage can have for today.

Researchers and scholars are invited to contribute to the issue by sending proposals relating to the topic. Here are some of the questions that can be addressed:

  • The relationships between the writer Diderot, the philosopher Diderot and the scientist Diderot
  • Diderot and the Encyclopédie
  • Diderot’s sources
  • Diderot’s influence on the nineteenth century
  • The meaning of Diderot for today’s Philosophy
  • Diderot Salonnier: between art criticism and aesthetics
  • Diderot and music
  • Diderot and imagination

ACCEPTED LANGUAGES: ENGLISH, ITALIAN, FRENCH, GERMAN, PORTUGUESE, SPANISH

DEADLINE FOR THE SUBMISSION OF PAPERS: 30/10/2022
