Entretien d'un père avec ses enfants ou Du danger de se by Denis Diderot

By Denis Diderot

Faut-il respecter los angeles loi même lorsqu’elle est injuste ? C’est à cette épineuse query que tentent de répondre le père de Diderot et ses enfants réunis à ses côtés, dans une dialog sans cesse interrompue par de nombreuses visites.

À mi-chemin entre le discussion et le conte philosophique, l’oeuvre invite le lecteur à réfléchir à son rapport à l. a. loi, à partir de cas concrets, inspirés du quotidien.

Et Diderot de rappeler que l’intérêt collectif ne saurait en aucun cas être sacrifié à l’intérêt individuel, dans los angeles démarche audacieuse et nécessairement exceptionnelle qui consiste pour un citoyen à « se mettre au-dessus des lois ».

Neither ‘writer’ nor ‘reader’ controls the process, nor may either of them evade responsibility. 131 Writing does not have one pre-determined meaning that must be discovered; rather, multiple readings are possible. I take this not only as a licence to read the novels under discussion in ways that raise interesting questions but also as a reminder of the responsibility of my reader.
