Paradoxe sur le comédien

The nice thing about it is that Diderot is, of course, the author of the play and Dorval is his, Diderot’s creation. Nevertheless, moi makes a delightful little comment at the end when he is invited to meet Dorval’s family, and recognizes all the qualities of character that Dorval endowed them with in his play, including moi’s good nature. Paradoxe sur le Comedien is less playful, more serious. Here, the paradox is less a figure that is self-contradictory, but rather an opinion that runs counter to accepted wisdom.

Diderot dares to think the unthinkable in the 18th century: With reference to Garrick, Diderot contrasts the formal declamation of noble Alexandrines in the French classical style, or the over-sentimental lachrymose acting of the popular comedies with a much more natural theatre, based on careful observation of gesture and expression.


Paradox of the Actor – Wikipedia

It is fascinating for its insight into the reasons for the low dixerot generally held of actors at that time: There is much made of the soul: Diderot was hopeful of improving the social status of actors by portraying their activities dideot in terms of a solid paradlxe than the work of the devil. Using acting and playwriting as a starting point, Diderot also develops ideas on comexien in general, what it is there for, what aesthetic and social ideals it is bound by.

He writes freely here as this piece was never published in his lifetime, he was writing for the drawer. Amazingly modern in places, Diderot comes shining through these pages of aesthetic paradoxxe as a humanist with lle merry heart.

Denis Diderot was a French philosopher, art critic, and writer. Diderot is also known as the author of the dialogue, Le Neveu de Rameau Rameau’s Nephewupon which many articles and sermons about consumer desire have been based. His articles included many topics of the Enlightenment.

As a philosopher Diderot speculated on free will and held a completely materialistic view of the universe; he suggested all human behavior is determined by heredity. He therefore warned his fellow philosophers against an overemphasis on mathematics and against the blind optimism that sees in the growth of physical knowledge an automatic social and human progress.

He rejected the Idea of Progress. In his opinion, the aim of progressing through technology was doomed to fail. He founded his philosophy on experiment and the study of probabilities. There he discreetly but firmly refuted d’Alembert’s technical errors and personal positions on probability.
