Under direction of Denis Diderot, the extensive encyclopedia was published. A work that evolved to be forerunner of French Revolution.

To distribute the thoughts of Enlightenment without falling victim to censorship, Diderot and d‘Alembert used cross-references. The links between the encyclopedia‘s volumes (that were released in loose rhythm) enunciated the explosive contexts. „Diderot Into Goal“ points up this „players‘ trick“.
