MicroReview 9: Le Neveu de Rameau

Diderot, Denis. Le Neveu de Rameau, in Contes & Romans. Bibliothèque de la Pléiade. Paris: Gallimard, 2004. ISBN 978-2080701435.

Enlightenment thought was not all naïveté. Diderot exposes the dark underbelly of his age in this tearing portrait of a man gifted, yet irredeemably unreceptive to moral “light”. I give *****/5.
