«Le neveu de Rameau» is probably Denis Diderot’s masterpiece, both from literary and philosophical standpoints, underscoring his prominence among the philosophers of Eighteenth Century France. Defined by Fredrich Schlegel «the tale of the birth of irony», in «a situational frame that allowed Diderot to turn Enlightenment into a dialogue» (Jauss), this charming composition on ethic, politics and musicology presents the lumières intent in enlightening the dark side of human nature.
