L’aigle à deux têtes de l’Encyclopédie: accords et divergences de Diderot et de D’Alembert de 1751 à 1759

Abstract : The aim of this analysis is to understand not only the agreements but also the disagreements and tensions undelying the co-direcion of the Encyclopédie from 1751 to 1759. There is a real dialogue between Diderot and D’Alembert in the articles concerning the conception of the Encyclopédie, the role of the contributors, the organisation of knowledge and the classification of the sciences. This discussion between the two editors takes place not only in articles but also in their works. D’Alembert’s decision to publish his Éléments de philosophie in 1759, at the very moment when he resigned as director can surely be seen as the sign of a rupture between Diderot and D’Alembert concerning what would today be called the Encyclopédie’s editorial strategy?
