D'Alembert's Dream (Le Rêve D'Alembert) is the title traditionally given to three related dialogues written by Diderot in 1769 but not published until after his death (the editorial history of the different manuscripts is a complex one). The links below are to the French texts and to a new English translation of each dialogue.
