Zopas verschenen: Diderot & d’Alembert, “Encyclopédie” (Sorbonne-exemplaar)

Uitgeverij Classiques Garnier heeft zopas een digitale editie beschikbaar gemaakt van de Encyclopédie (Dictionnaire raisonné des sciences, des arts et des métiers) van Diderot en D’Alembert. De editie is hier beschikbaar.

We are pleased to announce the online edition of the Encyclopédie published under the direction of Diderot and D’Alembert.

This new online edition of the copy of the Sorbonne brings together, in one single set, the thirty-five volumes including 74,000 articles, 18,000 pages of text, 213,000,000 characters and is particularly remarkable because of the documentation of its 130,000 inventory records in which the constituents of articles are analyzed.

This is an indispensable tool for everyone who is interested in the eighteenth-century Europe, in the Enlightenment, and in the arts, sciences, and philosophy of modern Europe.

Now available in digital editions, both the Diderot and D’Alembert’s Encyclopedia and the Yverdon’s Encyclopedia can be studied and compared in a systematic fashion, allowing for a renewed understanding of the European Enlightenment.
