More From Denis Diderot
- "The general interest of the masses might take the place of the insight of genius if it were allowed freedom of action."
- "There are three principal means of acquiring knowledge… observation of nature, reflection, and experimentation. Observation collects facts; reflection combines them; experimentation verifies the result of that combination."
- "Power acquired by violence is only a usurpation, and lasts only as long as the force of him who commands prevails over that of those who obey."
