The Philosophy of the Metaphysical Egoism

  • Miran Božovič
Keywords: solipsism, idealism, 18th century philosophy


The article considers Diderot’s early philosophical dialogue La Promenade du sceptique, which brings together in the philosophical garden the representatives of various schools of philosophy, the Pyrrhonist, atheist, deist, Spinozist, and so forth. It focuses primarily on the character of the so-called egoist, or solipsist, reconstructing and exploring his extravagant philosopheme. The author argues that the egoist who believes himself to be modified at the same time by the thoughts of all mankind should be considered the embodiment of the history of philosophy.
