Imparting Knowledge 


Encyclopédie The French Encyclopedie was monumental publication and one of the leading publications of 18th century Europe. The Encyclopedie was not a collection of material from any specific field, but of all kinds of materials from around the world, and as such was considered a summary of human knowledge. The book edited by DIDEROT, a renowned man of ideas, and D'ALEMBERT, a mathematician, broke away from the old values of religion and authority, and became a treasured dictionary for people of that time who were beginning to think with greater rationality and freedom.
