Overview

Encyclopedia

In c.1750, Alembert joined on as co-editor of the Diderot’s Encyclopedia.

Resignation

In 1757, with pressure on the Encyclopedia mounting, in respect to its progressiveness in respect to political, social, and religious insinuations and commentaries, along with some sort of personal beef or schism between Rousseau, Diderot, and Voltaire, in respect to intellectual seniority or superiority, Rousseau penned some sort of “Open Letter to Alembert”, portraying drama and comedy as vehicles for the corruption of innocent minds, for which Alembert demanded an apology, and Voltaire suggested that Alembert write some sort of Encyclopedia article on the city of Geneva, in respect to their poor choral music and the problematic Calvinist theological doctrines of the clergy. This bubbled up into forcing the Geneva church to retaliate, arrests to be made, and Alembert resigning as co-editor.[1]
