Printing and the mind of man 200: "A monument in the history of European thought; the acme of the age of reason; a prime motive force in undermining the ancien régime and in heralding the French Revolution; a permanent source for all aspects of eighteenth-century civilization (...) The Encyclopédie of Diderot and d'Alambert remained, and remains, unique." En français dans le texte 156: "Sous la direction de Diderot et d'Alembert, plus de deux cents collaborateurs connus ont collaboré à cette entreprise, l'une des plus ambitieuses qu'ait tentées l'édition française sous l'Ancien Régime. Médicins, écrivains, juristes, artisans, artistes, grands commis, officiers, amateurs d'art, prêtres ou pasteurs, ils avaient le projet commun de présenter à l'Europe cultivée de leur temps un tableau aussi clair que possible de l'ensemble des connaissances acquises depuis la Renaissance. Quelques-uns, les "Philosophes", pensaient en outre modifier chemin faisant la commune façon de penser en matière de religion ou de politique." SEE ILLUSTRATION PLATE LXXIII.
