This project deals with a subject rarely explored by Brazilian scholars in the work of one of the leading French Enlightenment writers, Denis Diderot (1713-1784): his reflections about the enlightenment related to teaching. For the French philosopher, the diffusion of knowledge would be the path to reach the human development and happiness. With this thought, Diderot was the editor and author of more than five thousand entries in the Encyclopedia, a symbol of the Enlightenment movement. In addition to devoting himself to the diffusion of knowledge, the philosopher developed an educational project linked to the Enlightenment project itself, in which he argues that education should be secular, public and based on State action. This emphatic defense of public and secular education can be found in the document Plan of a University, written in 1775, at the request of Empress Catherine II of Russia. This thesis analyzes the diderotian conceptions of knowledge and education emphasizing mainly the defense of an educational system which is public, secular and that aims at the promotion of enlightenment that is, the overcoming of prejudices and superstitions and the valorization of reason.
