"Denis Diderot" was a French philosopher, art critic and writer. He was a prominent figure during the Age of the Enlightenment/Enlightenment and is best known for serving as co-founder, chief editor and contributor to the Encyclop├ędie along with Jean le Rond d'Alembert.

Diderot also contributed to literature, notably with Jacques the Fatalist/Jacques le fataliste et son maître (Jacques the Fatalist and his Master), which was influenced by Laurence Sterne's novel Tristam Shandy in challenging conventions regarding novels and their structure and content, while also examining philosophical ideas about free will. Diderot is also known as the author of the dialogue Rameau's Nephew/Le Neveu de Rameau (Rameau's Nephew), upon which many articles and sermons about consumer desire have been based.
