Rameau's Nephew and Other Works
Macmillan, Jan 1, 1964 - 336 pages
Enthusiasts of Diderot and students of the Enlightenment will take pleasure in this group of new translations of several short works from his later career carried out by two senior scholars of history, Barzun (emeritus, Columbia U.) and Bowen (emeritus, Northern Illinois U.). Barzun translates Rameau's nephew, Bowen translates D'Alembert's dream and five more short works; they provide a preface for each. There is an introduction but no index. c. Book News Inc.
