Questions sur l’Encyclopédie

Read Voltaire from A-Z

Questions sur l’Encyclopédie provides an overview of Voltaire’s thinking and world view in 440 articles listed alphabetically.

Questions, Voltaire’s longest and most wide-ranging work, shows his interests and the positions he adopted as a writer, philosopher, poet, dramatist and historian in fields as diverse as literature, natural history, art, religion, linguistics, agriculture, law and politics.

The scholarly annotation of this edition of the Questions draws contextual links between this very personal ‘encyclopaedia’ and all his writings, making it an ideal starting-point to understanding Voltaire’s work.

Always thought-provoking, often amusing, this eight-volume set is an ideal way to give your library users and readers access to ideas of the Enlightenment.
