French philosopher, writer, editor, and art theorist

Diderot as a publisher of the French Encyclopedia along with D'Alembert was important for the Age of Enlightenment. As a dialectician and associative thinker he knew about the living unity of all things and therefore wrote the most important programmatic article in the encyclopedia. Far more than in France, where he was initially largely misunderstood and sometimes not until the 20th Century became of paramount importance, or even in England, Diderot was estimated in Germany, where he appreciated addition to the other affected noticeably by him Hegel and Goethe and Schiller.
