Diderot fit uvre de lexicographe pour l'Encyclopedie, atelier d'ecrivain, mais a sa maniere: il entendait a la fois transmettre une langue et changer `la facon commune de penser'. La comparaison de l'Encyclopedie avec la Cyclopedia de Chambers et le Trevoux demontre l'existence d'un veritable materiau lexicographique europeen. Les contraintes de ce genre nouveau font naitre des demarches d'ecriture qui gouvernent l'evolution de l'intelligence philosophique de Diderot.Cette etude retrace le developpement d'une forme alors neuve de recueils alphabetiques de savoirs, les `Dictionnaires universels'.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Il faut d'abord dire le plaisir - pas si frequent - qui ne se dement pas tout au long de la lecture de ce livre, de trouver une etude approfondie, largement documentee et toujours convaincante, servie par une langue riche et precise.'
Recherches sur Diderot et sur l'Encyclopedie


'C'est un document inseparablement lexicographe et philosophe qui nous est presente ici dans un ouvrage qui fera date a cote du Diderot et l'`Encyclopedie' de J. Proust dont il est l'indispensable complement.'
Dix-huitieme Siecle


'It is Leca-Tsiomis's accomplishment in this beautifully wrought book to show how the editor transformed definition production into a form of philosophical, creative writing.'
Diderot Studies
