De l’Horrible Danger de la Lecture / On the Terrible Danger of Reading


Voltaire’s short pamphlet, De l’horrible danger de la lecture, et autres Invitations à la Tolérance, serves as point of departure for this in-depth exploration of the act of reading, an act we take for granted in daily life but that engages us in complex mental operations involving our imagination and memory, as well as deductive and critical faculties.
