Diderot was educated at the University of Paris where he received his Master of Arts degree in 1732. He became friends with both Rousseau and Condillac. From 1745 to 1772 Diderot was the co-editor of the Encyclopedie with d'Alembert. In 1746, he published Philosophic Thoughts. A materialist philosopher, Diderot went far in describing the doctrine of evolution which would later be proposed by Darwin. Some of his other works include An Essay on Blindness (1750), Letter on the Deaf and Dumb (1751), Thoughts on the Interpretation of Nature (1754), and Elements of Physiology (1774-80).
