E bueno y de malo nos acontece auí abajo escrito estaba allí arribaJacues el fatalista pone en juego varias historias dentro de la historia algunas paralelas otras convergentes pero todas magistralmente articuladas Todas ellas se insertan en un universo donde existen la. Master Do you prayJacues SometimesMaster And what do you sayJacues I say Thou who mad st the Great Scroll whatever Thou art Thou whose finger hast traced the Writing Up Above Thou hast known for all time what I needed Thy will be done AmenMaster Don t you think you would do just as well if you shut upIt is often too easy for me to forget that high humor and religious cynicism are not new developments within the realm of published fiction On top of that as much as we readers here about pomo trickery and meta humor these terms often used as insults akin to calling someone trendy are generally associated with literature no than a century old Well to all you pomos and popomos allow me to introduce you to Denis Diderot He is your metatastic brother from another great great great great great grandmother At some point before his death in 1784 he composed Jacues the Fatalist in some editions titled Jacues the Fatalist and His Master an arguably better name because of the fact that it directly references the text s play on character power dynamics 1784 Remember thatThis novel written in the stage play style seen above combined with freuent asides by an omniscient brassy narrator tells the story of real life storytelling as depicted in written form Diderot breaks down the common motifs of the stock novel holding its cliches in one hand and the reality of conversing with other human beings in the other The dialogue is the same interrupted rambling endless swirl of words that we tend to find in actual attempts at expressing ourselves verbally either one on one or in groups Therefore stories are begun and left unfinished people are cut off corrected and reprimanded and plot possibilities are dangled in front of the reader and left to his or her own particular devices all while our playful snarky narrator reminds us that there is no way we can know for a fact one way or another if he is being truthful so why put stock in him or the storystories in the first place The book constantly re references repeats mirrorsdistorts and criticizes itself in a way that calls to uestion all creative interpretations of reality due amongst other things to the biases reader storyteller and subject bring into the telephone game that is relaying information in a meaningful way And it is amazingly funny while doing so I would be willing to bet my lunch money that Charlie Kaufman is a huuuuge Diderot fanTo go back to my earlier pointif you are religiously inclined I would stay away from this book unless you are of a mind to read elouently expressed harshly stated opinions which conflict with your own It is no secret that Diderot was a spiteful sort about organized religion and he uses Jacues and his insistence on Predestination as means to excuse his debauchery along with every other spiritual figure in the story each of which is almost corrupt than basically every non religious character within this fictional realm as a means to highlight the hypocrisy escapism and general slovenliness he saw in default spiritual beliefs Proceed with caution as this one does biteThis story was a bit of an awakening for me It may be the oldest piece of literature I have read which embraced meta humor to such an extreme As I previously stated I tend to let myself think that this sort of thing is a new ish development a product of information over saturation or something However Jacues the Fatalist is one of the most self aware admittedly even brazenly self critical and uite frankly hilarious novels about novel writing and reading that I have ever read It constantly stops to reflect on itself jarring you with by repeatedly pointing out that this is not an escape this is not a reality this is a story about stories within stories within stories and you are reading it right now The tangled mess that it eventually becomes reminded me in many ways of THIS bit of genius

S paradojas el humor la ironía la crítica la filosofía de la vida cotidiana y la filosofía universal La historia de los as de Jacues es el punto de partida de una novela delirante una pieza literaria imprescindible considerada la novela satírica francesa por excelenc. Diderot it is a name less prestigious than Rousseau and Voltaire We think of the Encyclopedia some erotic novels well done the libertins novels of XVIII are often boring His tomb is not even in the Pantheon contrary in two othersAnd then there was Kundera And Kundera worships him So I m obliged to interest to him Diderot was in jail for his ideas To escape the censorship he split up his writings Paradoxically I think that Diderot remains to discoverThus Jacues the fatalist Why fatalist Literally it is what is already said what is already written The fatalist it is someone who believes that all which arrives at him is written on a big book The fate governs the world and one has to bow before it We attend an opposition identical to that of Dom JuanDon Giovanni and his servant L porello Master laughs at his servant He believes in the free arbitrator But things complicate because Diderot does not believe in the free will He has even a certain affection for Jacues who even if he is fatalist reacts with ingenuity in front of events Jacues it is the fatalism without the resignationThis maieutics in fact is much balanced than to da PonteMoli re Jacues is not ridiculous he defends well himself And we see the conceptions of Diderot taking shape His obsession up to the death it is the physiology He is an admirer of the doctor Th ophyle de Bordeu for whom the human individuality involves strengths far complex than the simple Newton physicsThese combinations are passed on by generations in generations and grow rich thanks to capacity of the brain The man is modifiable Remarkable it makes of him a precursor of the neurosciences And it is of the assertion of his individuality which we can break with the egotismHis conceptions are far from being mechanistic Marx put him in the materialists but he made a mistake It is Rousseau the inspirer of the revolutionaries and the MarxistsDiderot did not believe in God but I think that there was in him a form of spirituality It is a kind of religion of the man that he proposes Man has only a single right that of the justice and a single duty that to make happy Beautiful program

REVIEW å E-book, or Kindle E-pub ´ Denis Diderot

¿Cómo se conocieron Por casualidad como todo el mundo ¿Cómo se llamaban ¿ué os importa ¿De dónde venían Del lugar más cercano ¿Adónde iban ¿Sabemos acaso adónde vamos ¿ué decían El amo no decía nada; y Jacues decía ue su capitán decía ue todo cuanto d. Exclusive Interview with Denis Diderot Author and PhilosopherReader Can you tell us a little about how this book took shape Mr DiderotDD There s not much to tell All I know is that one day two figures on horseback appeared on the page before me and it soon became clear that the one called Jacues he was definitely a Jacues was the servant of the otherR Were Don uichotte and his servant Sancho Panza an inspiration perhapsDD Who knows what connections there are between what we ve read previously and what we find on the page in front of us It s true that Jacues and his master seemed to go together from the beginning like uichotte and Sancho the one definitely couldn t exist without the otherR Right So you had the two characters What happened next DD Well since they were riding along a road together they found themselves conversing R So you decided to write the story in the form of a dialogueDD One of the characters seemed to like telling stories and as the other seemed to be a good listener and knew how to ask leading uestions a dialogue was inevitable I d sayR Inevitable That s funny in the context of this book But we ll come back to that later Right now I want to ask you about your characters journey You say at the beginning that it wasn t important where they had been or where they were going but you must have had some idea where you wanted them to end upDD Not at all I just knew there were two characters who seemed to be on a journey I trusted that one or other or both would know where they were going I was as much in the dark as the readerR Hmm Since you ve mentioned the reader can I ask why you digressed so freuently from the story that Jacues was telling his master and started to tell the reader your own stories ones that were completely unrelated to Jacues story so that the book became a series of nested stories a bit in the style of Tristram ShandyDD It s like this I took advantage of the various times that Jacues got interrupted in his story to insert some story ideas I had lying about on my desk And Sterne s book was on my desk too incidentallyR Saying you were taking advantage of the interruptions is surely a bit disingenuous it was you who created those interruptions after allDD Such as when Jacues horse took off across a field That horse had a mind of his own you know Even Jacues couldn t control him and we all know how stubborn Jacues wasR Oh yes I very much enjoyed watching how well Jacues resisted his master s efforts to get him to continue the story of his love life when he didn t feel like talking He really was a very stubborn character But you could have made him continue couldn t you Why didn t you DD As I say he gave me good opportunities to use material I had lying about and hadn t yet found a use forR And then you decided to make Jacues and his master or less switch roles Why did you do that DD Oh well that switch happened after the story telling session in the hostelry and had little to do with me uite a bit to do with la Dive Bouteille I d imagine If the hostel keeper s servant would keep bringing bottles up from the cellar what could I do A good bottle of wine wins over all obstacles R Oh yes didn t Jacues have a very Rabelaisian session in that tavern I noticed that he took advantage of every tiny pause in the hostel keeper s story to order another bottle until he became completely groggified I enjoyed that section a lot and I even kept Jacues company with a glass or two of my own But it did seem to take a long time for the effects of Jacues drinking session to wear off and then when they set out again on their journey the master had to start telling the story of his own love life instead DD Were you surprised at that R Yes I think I was as I hadn t imagined any past for him at all He was just Jacues master and all I knew about him was that he often consulted his pocket watch and invariably took a pinch of snuff right afterwards But then as he began to tell the story of his relationship with Agathe he began to take shape as a character and I was reminded once again of how much I love stories I became so involved in his adventures that I was frustrated when there were interruptions just as Jacues was And I even wanted to interrupt the stories myself from time to time with warnings similar to the ones Jacues began to give but I soon learned to stay uiet following Jacues example and just hoped the master would overcome his trials without our help And then near the end I felt myself to be just as much the master s dupe as Jacues seemed to be but I got through that bit again by following Jacues example and was reconciled to the outcome But hold on it seems that I ve been rattling on for too long instead of getting you to talk That wasn t how this interview was supposed to go DD Looking at the long scroll of words from the top of this review page down to the bottom I m reminded of Jacues statement about the inevitability of all things in the great scroll of life Toi ui as fait le grand rouleau uel ue tu sois et dont le doigt a trac toute l criture ui est l haut tu as su de tous les temps ce u il me fallait ue ta volont soit faiteR Well played Mr Diderot It seems I ve become trapped in your narrative net just as Jacues and his master were and I dare say it was inevitable from the beginning how this interview would endDD As Jacues would say It was written in advance
