French Studies of the Eighteenth and Nineteenth Centuries.

French Studies of the Eighteenth and Nineteenth Centuries. One of the most remarkable features of Diderot’s work is the refusal of closure in a large number of his texts which appears to leave philosophical, aesthetic or even narrative issues unresolved, and consequently invites a more active participation from the reader than more conventional works.

Intellectual History of Enlightenment, Eighteenth-Century French Studies. Materialism and morality: Diderot and Sade in light of the luxury debate. But from Sophus Reinert’s perspective, eighteenth-century political economy can be understood only in the context of the often brutal imperial rivalries then unfolding in Europe and its former colonies and the positive consequences of active economic policy.

At the end of the eighteenth and the beginning of the nineteenth century Karamzin published many translations in several periodicals

Pushkin referred to ZHUKOVSKY as 'the genius of translation'.

One of the most remarkable features of Diderot's work is the refusal of closure in a large number of his texts which appears to leave philosophical, aesthetic or even narrative issues unresolved, and consequently invites a more active participation from the reader than more conventional works. Since it is in the nature of critical discourse to wish to answer questions, this aspect of the works has remained relatively unexplored, with some critics even choosing to ignore the questions asked by the endings in their efforts to give a specific and unambiguous meaning to texts that, in reality, seek to blur their meaning or even to avoid having one. This study addresses the problems posed by Diderot's endings directly, seeking through them to illuminate readings of the works as a whole. Hence it looks not just at the endings, but at what the endings can tell us about the complete texts, and how they are characteristic (or not) of the rest of the works.
