According to the apologist, then, Diderot’s exhortation led directly to exposure and terrifying misprision. –/). The Confessions ask to be read as a story of a series of disfigurements caused by culture, a narrative of misrecognition, which is here to be set straight. /–). Nonetheless, the paranoiac fear of expropriation and self-oblivion would eventually haunt the exculpatory, self-justifying Confessions themselves. Hence we have the subsequent autobiographical supplements of the Dialogues and the Rêveries du promeneur solitaire.

Without doubt, he hits a nerve. The exchange is even more poignant insofar as it reveals that Moi in former days uncannily resembled the nephew as he is here represented: leading a financially precarious life, scrounging for work, posing as an expert pedagogue, and so forth. Le moi—the self—is conversing in part with the him (lui) who he was or perhaps still is. 8 The encounter with Lui could become an opportunity for Moi to establish his own identity across time; the debates might provide him the chance to discover or affirm a sense of selfhood: hence one aspect of the former’s appeal.

Diderot’s dialogue relates a chance encounter with a historical figure, the bizarre nephew of the famous composer Jean-Philippe Rameau. The afternoon’s conversation proceeds digressively, moving across topics that range from aesthetics and science to education and morality. Although the centripetal force of Moi’s enlightened method works hard to systematize the nephew’s skewed thoughts, the latter’s alienating perspective, punctuated by eccentric outbursts and frenzied musical performances, resists philosophy’s gravitational pull.
