Summary/Abstract: One of the most well-known texts written about art and also an exceptional phenomenon in 18th-century writing on art. Very soon after publication (1795) it was circulated internationally and by the beginning of Romanticism it had already become a classic of art commentary. It sums up a period of several years of Diderot’s life, in a large part devoted to the arts, preceded by years of deliberations on the physiological determinants of the reception of art and by studies on the psychology of creativity.
