About this product
- DescriptionExamines how Dr Diderot borrowed from Lucretius, Buffon, Maupertuis, and probability theory, and combines ideas from these sources to hypothesize that species are mutable and that all life arose randomly from a single prototype.
- Author BiographyMary Gregory is a scholar of the French Enlightenment. For the past ten years she has been researching Diderot's views regarding the metamorphosis of species in four of his texts, namely, the Pensees philosophiques (1746), the Lettre sur les aveugles a l'usage de ceux qui voient (1749), the Pensees sur l'interpretation de la nature (1753), and the trilogy, the Entretien entre d'Alembert et Diderot (1769), the Reve de d'Alembert (1769), and the Suite de l'Entretien (1769).
