Diderot and the Art of Thinking Freely

Award-winning historian and professor Andrew S. Curran, author of Diderot and the Art of Thinking Freely (out in paperback  from Other Press this October), will discuss the life and work of the Enlightenment philosopher and consummate atheist Denis Diderot. Curran will appear in conversation with Jim Windolf, the media editor of the New York Times. Their discussion aims to offer insight into the ways Diderot’s teachings might be ruminated on in current times and will highlight why this eighteenth-century thinker is more relevant than ever.
