Appello
Diderot non è mai stato in Italia: questo appuntamento mancato può essere oggetto di studio e di interrogativi, se si considera che durante il Settecento il viaggio in Italia era quasi una tappa obbligata per chi s’interessava all’arte. Nella fattispecie Diderot accenna spesso ai cursus di formazione degli artisti e alla loro diretta esperienza dell’arte italiana. Nel Salons commisura molte delle produzioni francesi a lui contemporanee con quelle dei grandi pittori italiani che egli conosceva bene.
Anche in lui, fine ellenista e latinista, l’Antichità romana resta l’oggetto centrale di riflessione all’interno di ogni ambito: artistico, filosofico, delle scienze naturali e del riformismo politico. In un contesto culturale che vede le polemiche fra “francesi” e “italiani” fra cui la nota “Querelle des Bouffons”, Diderot è mosso dall’intento di riformare il teatro: la sua teoria sull’attore è stata influenzata dalla Commedia dell’arte. E la stessa presenza a Parigi di Carlo Goldoni costituisce per Diderot un forte motivo di emulazione. L’Italia inoltre è molto presente nell’Encyclopédie: significativa è la rete di relazione fra molti collaboratori dell’Encyclopédie e un numero non trascurabile di riformatori italiani: questo è un aspetto che andrebbe approfondito e studiato. Qui si ricordano i due esempi più noti: l’incontro di Diderot con l’abate Galiani e con Cesare Beccaria. In particolare Beccaria venne tradotto in Francia (l’abbé Morellet, Traité des délits et des peinesRecherches sur le style). Il colloquio intende soffermarsi, inoltre, anche sulla precoce ricezione dell’Encyclopédie e delle opere di Diderot in Italia, studiandone la fortuna e le traduzioni.

International Conference “The Radical Enlightenment: The Big Picture and its Details” (16-17 May 2013, Brussels)

The international conference ‘The Radical Enlightenment: The Big Picture and its Details’ seeks to bring together state-of-the-art research on the so-called ‘Radical Enlightenment’, which refers to a distinct yet multi-faceted line of thought within the Enlightenment movement that puts great emphasis on – inter alia – political reform and activism, personal freedom, social equality, and critique of religion. The objectives of this conference are: to push forward our historical and philosophical understanding of the ‘Radical Enlightenment’, to identify important figures (materialists, atheists, freethinkers, Spinozists, pantheists, freemasons, philosophes, etc.) within the Radical Enlightenment and to unravel their significance and influence, to understand the origins and spread of the Radical Enlightenment (with attention to correspondence networks and communities, manuscripts, pamphlets, clandestine literature, etc.), and to reflect on the impact of the Radical Enlightenment on contemporary thinking. We welcome general historical and philosophical contributions and detailed case-studies of both well-known and lesser known figures.
